Author: Robert Fripp
Subject: More about the Fripps

I just discovered this site. How interesting. I am a screenwriter working on the screenplay for a four-part TV series on Edith Cavell. Invited to Brussels in June to survey the Ypres Salient, my hosts drove me around and we stopped at the Hopstore Cemetery, one of hundreds of World War I cemeteries. We stopped more or less at random, and we walked up and down the rows of headstones at random -- until I stopped and looked down. And there, the first name I saw, was the headstone for "Thomas O. Fripp". Imagine my shock. My Belgian hosts were equally amazed. When I got back to Canada I researched him on the Commonwealth Graves site. The "O" stands for Olphert.
And, yes, I have a fairly complete idea of my own line on the Fripp side going back to the Rev. Samuel Charles Fripp and Ms. [Anne?] Pocock.

Tom Olphert Fripp's parents were Tom Shelley Fripp and Elizabeth Louisa Olphert. This branch of Fripps are from Milton and Hordle in Hampshire. I haven't linked them to the Dorset or Bristol Fripps yet but maybe someone has found a connection.

I would be interested to see your line back to the Rev. Samuel Charles Fripp of Bristol. I am in touch with some of his descendants and have a vast amount of data to add to the Website about January 2003.

I also have info on Samuel's wife, Mary Anne Pocock's ancestry. She was the granddaughter of Mary Innes, whose line is now traced back to Berowald Flandrensis, who coincidently was born in Belgium. He was Granted the Lands of Innes by Malcolm IV of Scotland in December 1160. One of his descendants is now the 10th Duke of Roxburgh, who resides at Floors Castle, Scotland.

I have sent a separate e-mail.

Hi Sean,
Greetings from the Fripp Families of Australia. We are very interested in the Fripps of Ireland plus your Black Forest, and would like more info.
The Fripp Families of Australia are well documented in our newly published book FRIPP & FRIPPERIE, the Fripp Families of Australia which includes 500+ years of ancestry in the UK. Details from Bean.

Val, one lot of your g-g-g grandparents and my g-g-g-g grandparents are the same (Thomas Tilley and Patience Scott). I would like to get a copy of Charmaine's book on Thomas Fripp and Sarah Tilley. My grandmother was Louisa Madeline Tilley.

Regards, David Clarke

Information being sent. We researched the Tilleys twenty odd years ago, but the Fripp families are much more interesting and rewarding, so did not do any more regarding the Tilley family
