Summary
George B. (George Burbank) Ripley (1801-1858) of Norwich, Connecticut was a lawyer, landowner, and judge. He was the son of druggist Dwight Ripley (1764-1835) and Eliza Coit Ripley (1772-1846), the daughter of Captain William Coit (1735-1821) of Norwich. George B. Ripley married Hannah Gardiner Lathrop in 1825. The George B. Ripley papers, 1768-1854, consist of business documents pertaining to land holdings and investments of Ripley family members, particularly Dwight Ripley, George B. Ripley and his wife Hannah, and Georges siblings James L. Ripley and Jane Ripley. The documents are arranged chronologically within three groups: plots and surveys of lands in Norwich and Preston, Connecticut, 1768-1841; deeds and other land conveyances between Ripley family members and others, chiefly in Norwich and Preston, 1802-1854; and miscellaneous documents, 1823-1844. These include insurance policies; investment agreements; sales of shares in whaling voyages; several court documents connected to George B. Ripleys work as Justice of the Peace for Norwich; and a legal complaint filed against Ripley, 1844. Documents dated 1776 and 1810 are copied extracts of wills of Daniel and Thomas Lathrop.
