LIPPITT, Christopher, soldier and pioneer manufacturer, was born in Cranston, R.I., in 1744; son of Christopher and Catharine (Holden) Lippitt; grandson of Moses and Ann Phillis (Whipple) Lippitt and of Anthony and Phebe (Rhodes) Holden; great grandson of Moses and Mary (Knowles) Lippitt, and great2 grandson of John Lippitt, who came from England to America and settled on the Providence Plantations in 1638. He attended the country school; represented his town in the general assembly, 1765-75; and was captain in the militia and justice of the peace, 1766-75. In 1775 he was appointed lieutenant-colonel in command of the minute-men, who when Commodore Wallace of the British squadron landed his marines on the island of Prudence and burned the houses, removed the inhabitants and portable property and abandoned the island. He was commissioned lieutenant-colonel, Jan. 18, 1776, and shortly after, colonel of a volunteer regiment of infantry, enlisted by the general assembly for defending the state. He was stationed at Newport till Sept. 15, 1776, when with his regiment he joined Washington's army at Harlem Heights, N.Y. He served at White Plains, Trenton and Princeton, and went into winter quarters at Morristown. He was brevetted brigadier-general by Washington, and in January, 1777, returned with his regiment to Rhode Island, where, as brigadier-general of the militia of the county of Providence, he led the state force in the battle of Rhode Island, Aug. 29, 1778. He was again a representative in the general assembly, 1778-1783; declined to serve as judge of the superior court and as delegate to congress, and favored the adoption of the Federal constitution. He was married, March 23, 1777, to Waite {54081}, daughter of William and Patience (Clarke) Harris; she died, Sept. 8, 1836. They had twelve children. General Lippitt was an early member of the Providence Peace Society. In 1807 he supervised the building of the Lippitt Mill in Warwick, R.I., the third cotton mill erected in the state, and served as its first agent. He died in Cranston, R.I., June 17, 1824.
