An American Family History

Hannah Bonham Lippington

The Bonhams are Mayflower descendants: Samuel Fuller, Hannah Fuller Bonham, Hezekiah Bonham, Amariah Bonham.

New Jersey's first permanent European settlement was in 1660.

Hannah Bonham Lippington was born on October 8, 1659 in Barnstable, Barnstable County, Massachusetts. Her parents were Nicholas Bonham and Hannah Fuller.

When she was 18, she married Daniel Lippington (Lippentone, Lippentoune) on September 19, 1677. They lived in Piscataway, New Jersey and their children were born there.

Their children included:
Richard Lippington (1678, died at birth),
Dorothy Lippington (1679, died age 3),
Hannah Lippington (1681/82, died 11 months), and
Daniel Lippington (1687, died age 7).

Hannah (the mother) died on August 19 1689 when she was only 29.

Reseachers disagree about the date of Daniel, Sr.'s death. In 1697 Hezekiah held land that belonged to Daniel.
