Shipley lineage several years ago, I found an interesting book, written
by George W. Pirtle, Sr., which shows the connection with Shipleys and
President Abraham Lincoln. Pirtle has put together a scholarly record,
beginning with a brief historical and geographical background,
including his own lineage and the lineage of President Abraham Lincoln.
Several interesting maps are included in the book. For anyone
interested in looking up the book, it is available on microfilm, dated
4/3/78, Catalogue No. 7-102 #876.
My Shipley line begins with Adam Shipley, who came from England as a
young man. He settled near Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, in
1668. The Shipleys of Maryland is a good source for more information.
The Shipley name is from Anglo-Saxon origin and one of the oldest names
in England. The Shipleys were first Anglicans and later Methodists. One
of Adam's sons, Robert, is the ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln
and my Shipley line.
Lincoln's line is through Robert Shipley, Jr. Robert's daughter, Lucy
Shipley, was the mother of Nancy Hanks, and the grandmother of Lincoln.
My line is through Robert's brother, Charles, Sr., and Pirtle's line is
through Robert's brother William.
