(From The Gipson Book by Beatrice Gipson Carter of Azle, Tx) "Frederick Gipson is listed as a resident of Hinton House, Bath, England in 1647. His son,Sir William Gipson,was Speaker of the House of Assembly, Island of Barbados. William was created a Baronet April 21, 1752." (These dates lead me to believe that this William may have actually been a grandson to Frederick.-jr)"I have a coat of arms that was created at that time. Sir John, son of Sir William, became Rector of Brasted, England.Sir William migrated from the Island of Barbados to America and settled in North Carolina. Most of my information I collected from my Father, William Thomas Gipson, before he died in 1948."
The rest of the information is listed through Thomas, son of William, who was born in 1789NC m.Henrietta Elizabeth Stoddard. I have included all information I have collected from research and emails from descendants through Thomas' line. I have a little information on the Stoddard/Studdard line of Henrietta, which is also related to the first two spouses of Samuel. > Following is list of presumed children of Thomas Gipson, son of William. > Thomas was born in NC 1789. He died 1874 Athens, McMinn, TN. Thomas Gipson married Hannah (Henrietta) Stoddard,AKA Studdard. Henrietta was born ca1808 SC. She died 1874 Athens, McMinn, TN. This list is compiled from census reports and information from The Gipson Book by Beatrice Gipson Carter of Azle, Tx.
