  • Notes 
    • "Joshua, m 28 Nov 1682, Hanna Bradford. She was a daughter of William Bradford Jr, Deputy Governor of Plymouth Colony and grand daughter of Governor William Bradford, who came over on the Mayflower, in 1620. She was born May 9, 1662, and died 28 May 27 1738.
      They settled first at Hingham, MA, moved to Norwich, CT, 10 Oct 1688, and to Windham, 23 Mar.1691.
      His first purchase of land in Windham, as appears in the record, was 26 May 1688. The first house in Windham was built in 1680. The inhabitants obtained a grant of town privileges in May 1692, the first town meeting was held 11 Jun 1692, and Mr. Ripley was elected the first town clerk and treasure. He was also a justice of the peace.

      We copy the inscription that were placed over their graves. We give the first as far as it could be traced: the second appears to be complete.
      'Here lies peacefully interred the body of Joshua Ripley, Esq, on of His Most Worshipful Magesty's Justices of the Peace, for the County of Windham, died' -- the town record says 8 May, 1739.
      'Here lies interred the body of that most worthy, and virtuous, and most ingenuous gentlewoman, Mrs. Hanna B. Ripley, the well beloved consort of Joshua Ripley, Esq,., who after she had let a most lovely and eventful life, fell asleep in Jesus, May 28, 1738 in ye 75th year of her age.'
