    1694 JULY 31. STATE AFFAIRS. 349
    Yesterday Mr. Eppington and Mr. Dod, both Warwickshire gentlemen, quarelling upon the latter selling a horse to the other, fought, and Mr. Dod was killed, and the other sent to Newgate.
    1694 SEPT. 4. STATE AFFAIRS. 365
    Yesterday Mr. Eppington was found guilty of murthcr. for killing Mr. Dodd in the Hay market.
    BRIEF RELATION OF 1694. 366
    This evening 9 persons received sentence of death at the Old Baily, among whom was Mr. Eppington for the murder of Mr. Dodd, 2 highway men, 2 clippers, &c.
    1694 SEPT. 8. STATE AFFAIRS. 367
    Mr. Eppington has gott a repreive for some dayes.
    1694 OCT. 16. STATE AFFAIRS. 383
    The sessions being now at the Old Baily, Mr. Rippington, condemned last sessions for murder, was brought into court, where the lord cheif justice told him he had a repreive for some time, but now he must prepare to die, and askt him what he had to say thereon ; who made a mad rambling speech in answer, reflecting on the court and government, and so was remanded to Newgate.
    1695 JULY 2. STATE AFFAIRS. 493
    Mr. Reppington, condemned for killing Mr. Dodd, has obtained his majesties pardon.
    A great complaint is sent up to court from an alderman of Coventry, that an officer, with some soldiers, had severely beaten him, upon which messengers are sent to fetch them up.
    [The details for this person are vague - initially referencing the name Mr. Rippington this could have been one of the City of London Rippingtons, but there are four distinct facts that point to this being Gilbert Repington:-
    1) He's referred to as Mr. Reppington on one occasion.
    2) He and Mr. Dod are said to be "both Warwickshire gentlemen".
    3) There are no other Warwickshire Repingtons alive at this time.
    4) Gilbert did get in trouble with the London courts again in 1702, when he was living in Ludgate street ... and he later married Jane Vernon from that same street in 1703 - so he was clealy living in London at this time.]
