I have arms recorded for three entries (for two different arms) in the surname of TRIPP, but none for a John TRIPP. To assist you, we need more information. Just a few questions:-
1. Have you had a look at http://www.sog.org.uk/leaflets/arms.html yet?
2. How do you know that he had a coat of arms?
3. Do you know his paternal ancestry?
4. Any dates or place of orign?
If you can provide some of that info, we'll see what we can find for you.

I sincerely appreciate your offer to help me in my quest to find the Tripp coat of arms.
John Tripp was born in 1575 in Skirbeck, Lincolnshire, England and died sometime after 1609 in Portsmouth, Newport, Rhode Island. He married Isabel Moyes-Moses in 1609, she died in 1678 in Portsmouth, Newport, Rhode Island. The father of John Tripp was Nathaniel Tripp 2 born in1549 in Skiebeck, Lincolnshire, England and died sometime after 1600? Nathaniel Tripp 2 was the son of Nathaniel Tripp 1 born about 1523-1524 in Skirbeck, Lincolnshire, England and died after 1575 in Skirbeck, Lincolinshire, England.

Your reply gives me the impression that you haven't yet had a look at that URL I gave you in my previous post.
[ http://www.sog.org.uk/leaflets/arms.html ].

Also, I have to ask again, how do you know that he had a coat of arms?

These are important queries because most emigrants to the Americas from Britain were working-class people looking for a better life who didn't bear arms. I would suggest that only a VERY, very few might have been entitled to bear any arms at all. The records of the two TRIPP arms that I have are from Kent and Somerset. However, I'll make some enquiries about some other possibilities.

However, you also have to realise that the possibility of this John Tripp about whom you are enquiring actually having arms is somewhat remote given that most of the landed gentry of Britain stayed in Britain because they were landed gentry and had no reason to pack up and go elsewhere.

A search through Crozier's "General Armory" (of early American arms), Bolton's "American Armory" (ditto), and even the more specialized "A Roll of Arms Used in the English Colony of Rhode Island in New England, 1636-1776", came up with no entries for John Tripp or even the surname Tripp. I have to believe from this that there is no evidence that John Tripp used a coat of arms.

I hope that this information is helpful to you.

If the afore-mentioned John Tripp came from England, he woukld not have had 'family arms' as there is no such thing as 'family arms' in the UK. In the UK, Arms are granted to a person and can be inherited, in the main, only by his male line descendants that still bear the original Tripp surname.
