Dixon cannot find a Mary Jelds, and guesses that this was not her maiden name. Perhaps this was why she did not marry EVR.

I am currently researching Edward Villiers Rippingill and his descendants. He is my husbands 3x Great Grandfather. Some sources have his birth date as 1798 and others have his birth date as 1789/90 and of course born at Lynn, Norfolk. Edward died in 1859 aged 70 years so this would mean the year of birth was 1789. I am trying to find a baptism for him and also find out who his parents were. His father is recorded as a Farmer.

Groves Dictionary of Art:

 

(b King’s Lynn, ?1798; d Swan village, Staffs, 22 April 1859). English painter. He was a farmer’s son and was self-taught as an artist. He first showed paintings in 1813 at the Royal Academy, London, where he exhibited until 1857, and at the Norwich Society. By 1817 he was Edward Bird’s pupil or assistant, and on Bird’s death in 1819 he became the most prominent artist in Bristol. He helped to found a series of exhibitions for local artists at the new Bristol Institution in 1824. Rippingille’s work included oil paintings from nature, small portraits with carefully observed settings and genre scenes. The Recruiting Party (1822; Bristol, Mus. & A.G.) is in the idiom of David Wilkie, though the figures are stiffer and less fluently composed, and it contains many portraits of local people. His most notable work, the Stagecoach Breakfast (1824; Clevedon Court, Somerset, NT), includes portraits of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William and Dorothy Wordsworth. He painted in the meticulous, luminous Bristol school style, which later influenced Francis Danby’s genre scenes.

The painting of Thomas Hale by EVR is very interesting. They say that the

year it was painted was c.1810. Most sources have the birth date of EVR as

c. 1798. Now that means that he was 11 / 12 years of age when he painted

Thomas Hale. I find this very hard to believe and still think that he was

born c.1789 / 90 as it is stated in a Biography by the Oxford Dictionary of

National Biography and the source of information was Francis Greenacre. Also

going by his age on his death cert.

I have found a marriage in Kings Lynn, Norfolk between a Edward Rippingall

and Olivea Seuter in 1788.

I have a photocopy of this marriage from the actual Parish register. Now I

am leaning towards this couple as being the parents of Edward Villiers

Rippingille and of his brother Alexander Rippingille. So it is back to

sifting through parish records in and around Kings Lynn. Will let you know

what happens.
