BIOGRAPHY: This is from a recording of the Armorial bearings and Genealogies of American Families January 1868 compiled by George G. Phippen of Salem, MA.

BIOGRAPHY: Fitzpen the foregoing emblazoned sheet has been preserved in the American family, under sundry mulations, for upwards of two centuries. As stated upon one of the tablets or enclosures, it was recorded by Joseph Phippen, who lived and died in New England. Whose posterity were born here. He was the eldest son of David Phippen, of Weymouth or Melcomb Regis, United Burroughs, in Dorsetshire, England. 8 miles from Dorchester, that mursery of Mass. who with his family, consisting, as is believed, of his wife Sarah, four sons and two daughters. came to this country and settled at Hingham, Mass. Colony, with Rev. Peter Hobart, in 1635, who with the first thirty settlers, drew for their house lots Sept. 18 of that yr. and where he subsequent. had many other grouts of land.

BIOGRAPHY: Joseph was made a freeman in 1644, about which time he removed to Boston afterwards to Falmouth, New Portland, where he resided fifteen years till 1665 - then to Salem, Mass. where many descendants have lived to the present day. (1867)

BIOGRAPHY: In the inventory of effects of David Phippen who died February 15, 1782 age 67 - a gr. gr. grandson of the primitive David, we find this item. One large frame, containing the Genealogy of the Phippen family. this was a copy of the original and was elegantly drawn in 1768 by James Ford, a Scotchman, at that time a school teacher in Salem. This copy suffered an accident during the Rev. War whereby the circular caption and other import. tablets were defaced or rendered illegible. The extant copy, being the third in order, was drawn from this defaced one many years afterward, in 1808, by John Symonds of Salem, with additional tablets to later times. What became of the defaced copy, or of the original all efforts thus far have failed to discover.

BIOGRAPHY: From Symonds copy, which is drawn upon a sheet 4ft by 20 in.
enclosed in a frame composed of three plates of glass, the forgoing engraving is
made exclusive, however, of some of the resent additions made by him. All the
tablets above the middle line relate to the family and its connections in England.
Those below the line relate to this country. Other copies have recently been
multiplied by the writer, one of which exists, with other plates and emblozonry, in a
copious manuscript of the Phippen family by the same hand.

BIOGRAPHY: Thro the successful res. of H. G. Somerby esq. among English
Archives we are able also to present a copy of the Fitzpen or Phippen arms and
Pedigree, as furnished and certified to before the clarenceaux King of Arms at the
Heralds Visitation of Cornwall, in 1620 by the Rev. Geo. Phippen of Truro, in said
country. He was a brother of the primitive David of New England and was at that
time master of the grammar school there, and subseq. rector of St. Mary's Church
of the same place.

BIOGRAPHY: This original document with this signed manual attached may be
seen among the Harleian Manuscripts. Book #1162 in the British Museum.
London.

BIOGRAPHY: The name Phippen is patrony mic and is a corruption of Fitz-pen or
Filspen (Fitz for Fils from the Latin filius, Meaning Son) being a Norman prefix to
an old British name. Camden says Pen, is Britain, signifies the head or top of any
then whence the Pennine Alps - and the Apennines, and some mountains as
Pennon's Hill in Devonshire.

BIOGRAPHY: The first transition from Fitzpen to Phippen with which we meet
occurs with the Gr. Grandchildren of Henry Fitzpen of Devonshire, as George of
Truro, who styles himself George Fitzpen or called Phippen. His nephews in New
England signed doc. with an alias - sometimes Fitzpen als. Phippen visa versa -
Their children used only Phippen as now written and as still in use the rare in
Devon and Somerset, Eng. Fitzpen being now obsolete in both countries. In the
early records of this country we meet frequent cases where it is recorded as
Phippeny. But it was always a perversion and not so written by the family as
signatures abundantly show. A branch of the family that of James Phippen of 4th
generation in New England whos children removed from Boston to Stratford Conn.,
about 1680 and their descendants have adopted a form of Phipany. The name
Phippeny or Phippany applies also a natural sequence from FitzPain or Fitzpaine -
The name of an ancient Knightly family who held lands in Dorsetshire and other
countries in England. The Christian name Robert figures largely as it does in
Fitzpen.

BIOGRAPHY: Robert Fitz Payne was sheriff of Dorset and Somerset in 1150 and
was Lord of the Manor of Oaksey in Wilts. In Parliamentary writs we find Robert
Fitz Payne in 1277. Robti Phippanyne in 1509 and so on. The chief seat of the
family Fipany, Okeford in 1600. If future investing should unite these families the
line could be extended to a very remote period.

The following is an explanation of how I found a memorial errected to our ancestor,
George Fitzpen Phippen:

I know you are familiar with the history of the Phippen name. I have wondered for
some time if the monument that was erected to Owen Fitzpen Phippen in the
1600's still stood. If you will recall Owen was captured by the Turks and lived
aboard a ship. He organized the other Christians on the ship and over threw the
Turks. His brother who was a Rector of St. Mary's church, erected a monument to
him.

I went to the Internet and started searching for St. Mary's church of Truro, England. I
received several responses. One of them said, "Do you know how many St. Mary's
churches there are in England?" As I was trying to find this church I located a site
that was called orphans of Cornwall. I e-mailed the story of Owen and asked if they
had any information. They did. They sent me some history from several books. I
was corresponding with a Mrs. Rita Warmington from the Cornwall Family History
Society. She spoke with a Mrs. Williams, a friend of hers about my request. Mrs.
Williams had a reference to Owen Fitzpen Phippen and the monument. The
reference was in a notebook compiled by Mrs. F. Williams of memorials and
gravestones, which she saw in the Cathedral. Mrs. Warmington had sent me some
information on St. Mar'y's Cathedral. Apparently it had been built up around the
original St. Mary's church. There is one wall of the old church still standing.

On the information I received on the Cathedral was an e-mail address. I have been
e-mailing Reverend K. Paul Mellor (Paul@trurocathedral.org.uk) about my search
for the memorial. He has been very helpful. This is what he says about finding the
memorial: - We have located the memorial to which you refer in your
correspondence. It isn't in the Crypt of the Cathedral, but on a pillar at the entrance
to St. Mary's Aisle, which is a part of the old St. Mary's Parish Church from which
the new Cathedral grew in 1880. The memorial is in Brass, and will be difficult to
photograph, however, one of our volunteers is making a rubbing of it.

Reverend Mellor sent me the rubbing. I reduced it in size and scanned it. I am
assuming that you would be interested in having it. Reverend Mellor said that there
is a top Shield and a bottom one. The top one has shells, Lion and crosses on it.
The bottom one has shells. They are going to try and photograph it for me. I'll send
copies of the picture when I get it. The actual size is about 14 X 11. If any of you
are planning on going to England let me know and I will give you the address of the
Cathedral. Reverend Mellor said he'd love to see us there.

A HISTORY OF THE
PARISH CHURCH OF
ST. MARY, TRURO

By

TRURO
1948


Page 29-30
Visits by the Bishops of Exeter to Truro were rare events, but it appears that
Bishop William Alley (1560-1570) held at least one ordination there.

We have seen that Sir Richard Fosse was admitted to the Rectory of Truro,
perhaps for the second time, on 12th May, 1558; the next institution to the benefice
of which we have record is that of George Phippen on 17th December, 1624. We
know, however, from the Parish Registers, that William Danson died as Rector
shortly before—the burial entry is dated 9th December, 1624—and that he had
been Rector since at least 1611, at the end of which year he signed the Registers,
and possibly a little earlier. But we cannot discover how long Fossee continued as
Rector, or how many successors intervened between him and Danson, or the date
of Danson's appointment.

C. S. Gilbert, in his list of Truro Rectors, leads off with "1597, William Rake," while
E. J. Spry starts with "William Drake, Rector from 1601 to 1609." Now it is quite
true that the name "Drake" appears during this period at the head of the entries of
certain years in the Parish Registers, without the word "Rector" and without further
comment, and that several entries in the body of the Registers concern him or his
family, but from the same source we learn that he was Vicar of St. Just-in-Penwith.
He probably often officiated at Truro, but he would scarcely be called Vicar of St.
Just in the Truro Registers if he was also Rector of Truro. According to "A
Complete Parochial History of the County of Cornwall," published by W. Lake,
William Drake was of paper slips, so it is not surprising to find that the volumes of
the Parish Registers of St. Mary, Truro, are extant and is perfect condition from
1597 to the present day, but that the earlier records from 1538 to 1596, if they ever
existed, are long lost.

The first volume of the Truro Registers starts on the third parchment folio with the
Register of Marriages. This is preceded by two paper and two parchment folios,
on which were written at various times sundry memoranda of the greatest value
and interest, to which in due course we shall have frequent occasion to refer. From
this source we learn that in 1611 the church acquired a Communion Cloth of
damask price 10 shillings and a covering of broadcloth price 20 shillings, at the
town's charge, and that "a new surplus, wherein was 8 yards of cloth called
Shepherds Holland being almost a yard and a quarter broad, price 2/2 or 2/6 the
yard at most," was bought for the Clarke by the town also that in 1613, two years
after the publication of the Authorised Version, "a newe Bible" was purchased for
L2-13-4 at the towne's charge," William Bagwell being "the Clarke," while the
Churchwardens for the year were Germaine Grest and John Pannell. An entry in
the body of the Register, at the end of the year 1622, supplies the information: "We
have nor noncommunicants nor recusants according to the 112 and 114 Cannons"
(i.e. the Canons of 1604).

From the period between 1558 and 1624, the dates of the institutions of Fosse
and Phippen respectively, we are fortunately able to make mention of certain
monumental brasses and other monuments, and of some communion plate.

The oldest surviving monumental brass in Truro is that in memory of Thomas
Hasell, who died on 25th July, 1567 Spry, in 1841, mentions this as being "let into
the pavement of the south aisle."


Page 35-41
Among the treasures of the Cathedral are four magnificent volumes of photographs
and descriptions of "The Church Plate of Cornwall, " by Canon H. H. Mills. From
this source we learn that the oldest surviving plate of St. Mary's, Truro, are one
chalice and cover paten of 1619-1620, and two very large flagons of 1623-1624;
these last have inscribed on them the Arms of Truro and the words: "The Gift of
Henry Williams of Truro, Draper."

We come now to George Phippen, of whose life and work as Rector of Truro we
possess much more information than of those of his predecessors. The first
parchment page of the parish registers tells us that he became "Lecturer of the
Church of Truro" on 1st January, 1619, and "Rector of the same Anno 1626." This
last date, however, must be an error for 1624, for the Register of Bishop Cary of
Exeter shows that he was actually instituted on 17th December, 1624, obviously in
succession to William Danson, whose death, as we have seen had just taken
place, and whom Phippen had evidently assisted for the previous six years.
Moreover, Phippen himself signed the Registers as "Rector" at the end of the year
1624. He came from Dorset, matriculated at Exeter College, Oxford at the age of
14 on 6th February, 1606-7, took his B. A. degree on 27th October, 1610, and his
M. A. on 28th May, 1614. "He obtained a dispensation from the Archbishop of
Canterbury, under the seal of the Faculty Court, dated 11th May, 1625, to hold the
rectory of Lamorran with that of Truro, as these parishes are not more than two
miles apart. He was also at that date one of the chaplains of Richard, Baron
Robarts of Truro." Sir Richard Robarts, Knight, son of John Robarts, Esq., had
purchased Lanhydrock House, four miles south of Bodmin, in 1620, was made a
Baronet in 1621 and Baron of Truro in 1624.

Phippen was also Master of the Truro Grammar School from 1621 to 1635. His
beautifully clear, neat handwriting is seen to advantage in the Truro parish registers
and also in a manuscript sermon, which is preserved in the Cathedral Library—this
was preached at the Assizes at Launceston on 11th March, 1634-5; in it he
described himself as "Minister of God's Worde at Truroe." A further manuscript of
his great interest is carefully kept in the parish safe in St. Mary's aisle. This is a
single loose sheet of parchment, headed: "A Terrier of the Glebe-land belonging to
the Rectorie of Truroe in the County of Cornwall." It is signed by George Phippen,
Rector, two Churchwardens and two Sidesmen and was exhibited at the Visitation
of Dr. Joseph Hall, Bishop of Exeter, at Truro on 16 March, 1630. It shows that
there were only "one paire of old walls, the ruins of a house, together with a little
plot of ground behind the same," also that there was "only the street or highway
between the east end of the churchyard and the parsonage lands"—in other words,
the ruins of the rectory house stood where the Mission House now stands. Perhaps
we may safely guess that Mr. Phippen lived at Lamorran Rectory. He seems,
however, to have intended his bones to rest in Truro, for in 1628 he constructed a
vault under the altar of St. Mary's Church, covered it with a stone and affixed
thereto a monumental brass—this last being now on the east wall of St. Mary's
aisle. It is in the shape of a shield with an inscription and the coats of arms of
Phippen, Jordan (his mother's family) and Pye (his first wife's family). The Latin
inscription may be rendered as follows: "I, George Fitzpen or Phippen, (born in)
1591 at Melcomb in Dorset, in 1614 Master of Arts and Preacher, in 1624 Rector
of this Church, and Jane Pye, my wife, (Married in) 1621, have had this Table and
the Vault beneath the same made in 1628. Jesu, Son of David, (thou art) alone for
us the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Spry, speaking in 1840, commented enthusiastically upon the Protestantism of the
conclusion of this inscription, "thus recording the firmness of their belief in the great
Protestant doctrine of the sole mediation of the Saviour, and the finished character
of his ‘one offering for sin'." The Communion table, happily preserved to-day in St.
Mary's Aisle, is a fine one made of oak, across the top surface of which there is a
brass band, on which is engraved in Greek Uncial lettering a quotation—St. John
VI, 54-"Whoso eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath eternal life, and I will
raise him up at the last day."

A lengthy transcript of a dispute in 1639 between the servants of the mayor and of
the rector about the alleged wrongful use of Holy Communion wine left over after a
celebration of the Lord's Supper shows that that service was usually held monthly
on the first Sunday in every month.

According to "Alumni Oxonienses," which gives as reference Add. MS. 15, 669,
page 48, George Phippen was sequestered to the rectory of Berkhampstead St.
Peter, Herts, in 1645, by the Westminster assembly of divines. Phippen himself, in
his will, mentions "the time of my imprisonment for myne adhereing to the
Parliament," but these episodes in his career seem to have been brief. His
characteristic handwriting continues in the Truro registers up to 26th May, 1647
after which another hand takes over; perhaps Phippen then moved from Truro to
Lamorran and did no more work in Truro. The Parish Register of Lamorran records
the burial of his remains there on 28th September, 1651. It is significant that in his
will, dated 20th July, 1650, and proved on 1st March, 1651-2, he makes no
mention of Truro, but prays "that God would provide some able and faithful Minister
to succeed me in Lamorran." It is instructive to compare the opening sentences of
his will with those of the Middle Ages, for example, of John Archer, quoted above.
There is a similar piety but a different theology, for Phippen wrote: "First I
commend my soul and body into thy gracious hands, both saved by the alone
merits of my sweet Jesus, being fully assured that for me to live is Christ and to die
is gain." Yet Phippen probably never gave up the rectory of Truro offically, for the
Taunton MSS show that the next presentation to the benefice made by the patron,
Pierce Edgcumbe, did not occur till March, 1651-2, when it was declared to be
"void by the death of George Phippen."

George Phippen's brother, Owen, lived a more exciting and adventurous life, as
the slate monument, erected in his memory, bears witness. This was formerly "to
the right of the alter on the north side of the chancel, but nearly concealed by
screen work," was moved to the crypt of the cathedral in or soon after 1880, and in
1938 was placed under the window of the tower at the west end of St. Mary's Aisle
on the south side. The inscription reads: "Glory to God in the highest. To the pious
and well deserved memory of Owen Fitzpen alias Phippen, who traveled over
many parts of the world and on the 24th March, 1627, was taken by the Turks and
made a captive in fighting. He projected sundry plots for his liberty and on the 17th
June, 1627, with 10 other Christian captives, Dutch and French, preformed by his
counsel and courage, he began a cruel fight with 65 Turks in their own ship, which
lasted 3 hours, in which 6 of his Company were slain, yet God made him Captain,
so he brought the ship in Cartagene, being of 400 tons and 22 Ordnance. The King
sent for him to Madrid to see him, he was proffered at captain's place and the
king's favour, if he would turn papist, which he refused. He sold all for L 6,000,
returned into England and died at Lamorran, 17th March, 1636. Melcomb in Dorset
was his place of birth, Age 54, and here's earth in earth. George Fitzpen, alias
Phippen, his brother and Rector of this Church, erected this monument." His body
was interred at Truro, not at Lamorran.

The Monumental brass of Cuthbert Sydnam, consisting of an effigy and inscription
plate, seems to have been affixed during the 19th Century, as we have already
noted, to the stone of Hassell's memorial. The Sydnam inscription reads:--"Here
lieth ye body of Cuthbert Sydnam, Woollendraper, who was Mayor of this Towne
Anno Domini 1627: and departed this life ye 8th of May, 1630: aged 54 years: and
had Issue by Jane his wife (at whose cost this stone was layd) 4 sonnes and 4
daughters, viz: Humphry, Cuthbert, Anne, Margaret, and Blanch Deceased, and
William, Cuthbert, and Jane then living."

One other inscription from the period of Phippen's rectorship has been preserved.
It is painted on a board now affixed to the west wall of St. Mary's aisle under the
tower, but till 1880 in the south porch. It runs as follows:--

"C. R. To the Inhabitants of Cornwall.

We are highly sensible of the extraordinary merits of our County of Cornwall; of
their zeal for the Defence of our Person, and the just Rights of our Crown: in a time
when we could contribute so little to our own Defence, or their Assistance; in a
Time when not only no Reward appeared, but great and probably Dangers were
threatened to Obedience and Loyalty; of their great and eminent Courage and
Patience, in their indefatigable Persecution of their great Work, against so potent
and Enemy, backed with so strong, rich and populous Cities, and so plentifully
furnished with Men and Arms, Money, Ammunitions and Provisions of all kinds;
and of the wonderful Success with which it hath pleased Almighty God (tho' with the
Loss of some eminent Persons, who shall never be forgotten by us) to reward their
Loyalty and Patience, by many strange Victories over their and our Enemies, in
despite of human Probabilities and all imaginable Disadvantages; that as we
cannot be forgetful of so great Deserts, so we cannot buy desire to publish to all
the world, and perpetuate to all Time and Memory of their Merits, and of our
Acceptance of the same. And to that end, We do hereby render our Thanks to that
our County, in the most public and lasting Manner we can devise; commanding
Copies thereof to be printed and published, and one of them to be read in every
Church and Chapel therein, and to be kept for ever as a Record in the same; that,
as long as the History of these Times and this Nation shall continue, the Memory of
how much that County both merited from us and our Crown may be derived with it
to Posterity.

Given in our Camp at Sudley Castle. September 10th, 1643"

J. C. Cox, in his "County Churches—Cornwall," includes Truro in his list of 33
churches with retain painted panel copies of this Letter of King Charles I. Dr. Cox
points out that "in the great majority of cases the letter dates from the restoration of
the monarchy, the originals having been destroyed during the Commonwealth."

George Phippen's departure from Truro was marked by one immediate and
permanent change, for the language used in the Parish Registers was thenceforth
English instead of Latin. This alteration took place in May, 1647. We have no
evidence from the Exeter Episcopal Registers of the institution of a new Rector
and it is probable that none was instituted at this time, nor until 1662, but during the
intervening years there were Ministers of Truro Church, to whom the title "Rector"
was sometimes accorded, though incorrectly. The first of these, dubbed by their
opponents as "intruders," seems to have been William Tombs or Toms, who,
according to Bodleian MS. 326. 60, was "Rector" of Truro on 28th May, 1647. The
manuscript quoted is part of the Minute Books of the Committee for Plundered
Ministers, 1645-53. He probably stayed about two years and was succeeded by
John Tincomb or Tingcombe, who was "Minister of Truro" by May, 1649. He was
the son of Philip Tingcombe, Rector of Lansallos. He matriculated at Exeter
College, Oxford, on 17th March, 1636-7, aged 18, and took his B. A. degree on
15th October, 1640. He is mentioned in Lambeth Palace Library MS. 978 F. 94 as
being Minister of Truro in August, 1650, and in that capacity he wrote a letter on
16th August, 1655, to Henry Scobell, Esq., Clerk of the Council of State,
concerning the incomes of Presbyterian and Independent ministers in Cornwall. He
report includes: "Truro; a parsonage but of small value. The tithes, if they were to
be set, would not yield above L 10 or L 12 at the most. There is an house and
garden; a little garden belonging thereunto. It cost me, within these six weeks, L 15
to repair it. I have, from the sheafe of Gurram, an order of L 25. The taxes that I
have paid out of it, and other charges, comes to about L 3 or L 4 per annum. I had
St. Clement added to Truro (a little parish joining thereunto, valued at L 50). I did
not make L 20 of it. When St. Clement was taken from me, and given to another, I
had from the committee L 40 in lieu thereof… He that preaches there (at St.
Clement) is Mr. Thomas Powell…" Later he reverts to "Truro, L 12 at the most,
besides the house. ‘Tis true, the first fruits are L 16, the tenths yearly 32 shillings,
but I have not paid either, having no legal title to the place; neither do I receive any
of the tithes…" He sums up thus:-- "Besides (various other named places there
are) many parishes that are destitute of ministers, five or six together, because
there is not a competency for a godly one. If the order for uniting parishes might be
reversed and put in execution, it would much conduce to the provision for minister."

A transcript in the Taunton MSS from some Edgcumbe MSS. Shows that John
Tingcombe was actually presented by Pierce Edgcumbe, the patron, to the
benefice of Truro in March, 1651-2, the living being "void by the death of George
Phippen." But it is evident that Tingcombe was never instituted. The Parish
Registers of Truro include his wife's burial entry on 26th May, 1659. He was given
a grant of L 12-10-0 from the "Sale of Bishops' Lands Fund," according to the
"Account declared before the Court of Exchequer, 14th November, 1659." His
successor was instituted on 23rd September, 1662, on his own deprivation.
Tingcombe's name appears in Bodleian MS. 326.60, as does that of his
predecessor.

This sequence of ministers appears plain enough, but we ought to notice two
apparent mistakes. In Lambeth Palace Library MS. 968.82, Thomas Powel is
mentioned as being Rector of Truro with St. Clement's, 5th June, 1657, but
presumably he was only Minister of St. Clement near Truro. More mysterious is
one "Thomas Peter, Minister," who is thus included in the list of incumbents of St.
Mary, Truro, with date 1660, but inserted out of place between two entries….
