Verification & Concerns Returns to 'Top of Page'

  1. There were numerous differant spellings of "Stripp" in the parish registers eg (Strip, Stripp, Strype, Stripe, Streape, Strape, Streap). 'Streape' tended to be used from about 1730 up to about 1800, 'Strip' was then normally used to about 1840 and then 'Stripp' became the standard. Prior to Streape up to about 1715, it is thought that the name Treape (or Treap or Trepe) was used . People have been shown with the name Stripp throughout with the other names appended where applicable. The transition from Streape to Stripp is born out by the parish records being followed for a particular person ( see William Stripp & Eleanor Harris introduction for example). The transition from Treape to Streape has yet to be clearly proven but few occurences have been found since 1715 and the timeline/names fit.
  2. There was a Thomas Treape who left a Will in Edenbridge in 1590 (links to Horstead Keynes) showing wife Joan, sons William, John & Thomas, daughtersAnne, wife of John Skinner & Joan, wife of George Knight. The William may be the fatherof the William 1600
