Re: Devon, England Tripe family
Ooops. My prev post said I have no record of issue from Robert Marke and Elizabeth M Tripe. Thats wrong. They had 3 male issue and 2 female issue. Their third child was named Theophilus Tripe Marke b1820 d1904. Theo became quite wealthy. Amongst other things he left money for the window in Pitminster Church. (Picture at http://www.marke.net/images/tmarkeptweb.jpghttp://www.marke.net/images/tmarkeptweb.jpg ). Theo's older brother John Marke b1819 admired Theo and named his 4th son Theophilus Tripe Marke (prob born 1852). To my knowledge there are no more Theophilus Tripe Marke's but anything is possible. Theo (both) are descended from John Marke d 13 Jul 1777 as am I.
