Re: Devon, England Tripe family
John Morris follow up to Mark Frey msg. Both these msgs contain good initial info re Tripe. I found the bio of Linneaus Tripe good particularly as it notes both his parents. Its at http://www.vam.ac.uk/collections/photography/features/photo_focus/tripe/biography/index.htmlhttp://www.vam.ac.uk/collections/photography/features/photo_focus/tripe/biography/index.html (thats at the V&A museum). A Tripe entered my family tree by marrying Elizabeth Marke b1773 dau of Robert Marke (b16 Jul 1742 Pitminster Somerset). Elizabeth & ? Tripe had 2 daughters Sarah Clarke Tripe & Elizabeth Marke Tripe the latter b1791 d1873. EM Tripe married her cousin (once removed) Robert Marke b1786 d1852. I suppose her full name then became Elizabeth Marke Tripe Marke. I have no record of issue. Anyone with Tripe info please contact or leave a msg. Fascinating stuff!
