Notes and Commentary
- The "Relation" of John Tripp (the immigrant, d. ) allowed for the discovery and subsequent publishing of the English ancestry of this Tripp family.  In this document, John Tripp himself gives details of his family and immigration to New England. This research corrects and supersedes much incorrect speculation from the past.
Common Errors to Avoid
- Incorrect parents: He is often said to be a son of Nathaniel Tripp of Lincolnshire, England. This is incorrect. He has been proven to be a son of John Tripp and his wife Ellys Unknown.
