THOMAS LILLIBRIDGE OF NEWPORT, R. I., AND 
HIS DESCENDANTS* 



1. Thomas^ Lillibridge, the founder of the Lillibridge family in the 
United States, was born in England in 1662. His name first ajipears in 
this country attached to a petition, dated Newport, Sept. 26, 1699, to the 
Earl of Bellomont, to vise his influence with " his Majesty " William III. 
for the establishment of an Episcopal church at Newport (S. G. Arnold, 
History of R. I., vol. 1, p. 599). This was Trinity church, in which Thomas 
Lillibridge was a warden till 1713, and where he owned pew 8 till 1719. 
He was admitted a freeman at Newjiort, May 6, 1701, and is mentioned 
as a vestryman in Narragansett church, 1718. He settled in old Westerly 
(now Richmond) in 1720, where he died Aug. 29, 1724. Besides personal 
estate inventoried at £1160, 18s., and two slaves, he left by his will, 1724, two 
houses in Newport, land in the " Narragansett country, " and old Westerly, 
besides other " unsettled lands " ; also a maintenance to his brother Edward, 
" if he shall come into this country " ; and a bequest " unto John my broth- 
er's son " — perhaps he who married Mary Joslin in South Kingston, Mar. 
29, 1730. Many of the records in Newport being destroyed by the British 
during the Revolution, the records of Thomas Lillibridge's Newport life are 
meagre, but indicate that he married first Mary, daughter of Henry and 
Mary Hobson (Austin, Genealogical Dictionary of R. I. , additions and 
corrections concluded, under Hobson) ; and secondly Sarah Lewis, who died
