The Warrior Ripleys of Connecticut
As seen in other pictorial pages here, the Ripleys originated as a band of Celtic tribesmen known as the Hrype tribe. In the early 1300s, they travelled north with King Edward III and King Richard II to defeat the Scots, and were rewarded with Ripley Castle in Yorkshire. When they came to America, the warlike genes persisted. Read of this Ripley clan in Connecticut, where the warlike blood mixed with the pioneer blood of the Mayflower survivors. Successful and prominent, they swung their swords for America. You will read of the Mexican War, the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and of two Generals of the Civil War - on opposite sides, though they were uncle and nephew.
