Border
General History

William Stripp (or Streape) & Elizabeth Underhill were one of my 7th generation ancestors.

Key Dates:

NOTE: See explanation on names and their changing over time (Concerns-item 1)

William Stripp (Treap) was probably born around 1710. He married Elizabeth Underhill on 5th March 1739 in Horne, Surrey (name shown as Streape). William was buried on 13th August 1786 in Horne Surrey ('an old man from Frogett Heath'- shown as Streape).

NOTE: I had previously thought that William was the son of William & Anne Treape. However this has now been found to be incorrect due to the will of the William (1785). This had also caused me to believe that the Treape name was a forerunner of Streap which then changed to Stripp. I no longer have any convincing evidence of this.

Elizabeth Underhill was baptised on 31st October 1716. She was the daughter of Richard Underhill & Mary Tapsall. Elizabeth was probably buried on 26th May 1779 in Horne, Surrey (shown as Streape).

Personal History Returns to 'Top of Page'

General:

The families of Stripp and Shirley tend to very interconnected with marriages between them and also the families living adjacent to each other. The families tend to be based around the Surrey/Sussex border at Copthorne, Horne (Frogit Heath) and Blindley Heath. Looking at the parish map one can see that the parishes of Tandridge, Godstone & Horne all merge at this point and also are adjacent to Worth & East Grinstead. Frogit Heath is actually in Horne & Godstone parishes and Blindley Heath is actually in Horne, Godstone, Tandridge & Lingfield parishes. The location is some distant from the actual villages of Tandridge and to a lesser extent Godstone. Thus it is likely that the family ancestors arise from Sussex.

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 are no parish records of Stripp/Streape found in the adjacent parishes of Burstow (pre1700), Charlwood, Horley, Limpsfield or Worth
