  • Note: Following is a record verbatim from Valentine Research Studio, o f Washington D.C., written by Caroline Valentine, and published in 1932 : Abiel Tripp founds a line the Abiel to whom the known early "double co usins" and many other cousins trace, did not have his "chance" with the r est. Instead of a long life and quiver full of children, he had but a bri ef, promising youth, and a single child, a son, born just before the fath er's death, to carry on the name. This first Abiel indeed began well. H e was admitted as freeman of the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Pl antations, May 6, 1679, as Abiel of Portsmouth; where he was already a fr eeman of the town, owning property. Of all but eldest sons, this was requ ired. On May 16, 1682, he is recorded as voting. In 1679, at twenty-six , he was Surveyor of Cattle for Portsmouth, a position requiring quick an d keen decisions, and ripened judgment. The Tripp-Hall minds marched so w ell together that his marriage with a third Hall must have greatly gratif ied the parents on both sides, two of his sisters having married Halls al so. The first Abiel Tripp died at thirty-one, and to the tiny son, Abiel , who first saw the light only three months earlier, came the responsibil ity for all the long line of Tripps who followed these two. Even the juni or Abiel was survived by only two sons, Thomas of Tiverton, and Joseph, w ho married Frances Hall. Although the second in this Abiel line, the Juni or Abiel, was not actually the second Abiel Tripp in America. For a cousi n of this same name, born in 1681 in Joseph's line, led him in time by th ree years. There were four Johns, grandsons to the Founder. John, the old est son of the Founder's eldest, was by common consent known as the "Joh n Junior". He also produced an Abiel in 1709; so that there were three li nes of Abiels evolved to cross and entangle one another, before the fift h genration even began to appear. Deliverance,the young widow of the firs t Abiel, soon married Thomas Durfee. The interests of Abiel, the son, wer e cared for by a special act of the legislature; whereby, on petition b y Thomas, for himself and wife, the ferry between Rhode Island and Bristo l, to the north west, was "confirmed" upon the heir of Abiel Senior. It w as enacted that the ferry "be stated upon said Thomas Durfee and his wif e until the heir of said Abiel come of age". Accordingly, after s ome little apparent competition between young Abiel's guardians and Joh n Burden, in 1698 "the Liberty of the Ferry" was voted, for the seven yea rs next ensuing, to Abiel Tripp and John Burden and their heirs, etc., "a s formerly", under Thomas Durfee and his wife Deliverance. This was an im portant ferry, leading to the mainland over a stretch of the bay. It wa s for that day a big business asset of the colony of Portsmouth and of Ne wport. It was strictly censored, and the act of confirmation required tha t the Ferry Masters carry all Magistrates, Deputies and Jurymen, and al l other persons being upon his Magisty's service, and the post ferriage , free. They were warned, also, "not to exceed their usual price for ferr iage", etc. Since Abiel's wharf in Rhode Island was at the island end o f the ferry, it is easy to see how convenient it was for the town to mak e the first young Abiel, and his son after him, surveyor of the cattle be ing taken off the island. Just as easy, probably, was it for the Abiels t o root themselves in the soil of Tiverton. At all events, Thomas was sea ted there; John Junior, son of John and Susanna Anthony became a fixtur e there also. Othniel, John Junior's son, staid until his own first wif e died, apparently. Before coming of age, young Abiel allied himself wit h Eleanor Waite. They were married the day after her sixteenth birthday . The two were cousins; Eleanor's mother having been born Mary Tripp. The y lived at Tiverton. Of course there was a namesake for Abiel, the fathe r and for the young Grandfather (now more than twenty years dead); but th is child, born in 1707, died in infancy. As John the Founder's line, th e Abiel line started in Portsmouoth; as an Abiel line, it started in Port smouth, but passed to Tiverton, where John Junior's Abiel was also seated , and later, to New York.
