Dorchester / Providence Immigrants

Charles M. Whipple, Jr. A History of Captain John and Sarah Whipple of Dorchester, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island : A Multigenerational Study of the First Whipple Family in America. — Victoria, B.C. : Trafford, 2007.

You’re sure to enjoy the 44 pages of Chapter 1: “Captain John Whipple: First Known Whipple in America.” It presents a thorough history of the earliest known Dorchester/Providence Whipple. The 154 notes at the end of the chapter provide serious researchers plenty of opportunities to search further to convince themselves that this John is indeed a different person than the middle-aged John that settled in Ipswich six years later.

John and Sarah had the following children (the first nine born in Dorchester, the last two in Providence):

  1. John Whipple (1639 – 15 Dec 1700)
  2. Sarah Whipple (2 Feb 1641/1642 – after 12 May 1710)
  3. Samuel Whipple (chr 17 Mar 1643/1644 – 12 Mar 1710/1711)
  4. Eleazer Whipple (chr 8 Mar 1645/1646 – 25 Aug 1719)
  5. Mary Whipple (chr 9 Apr 1648 – 12 Jul 1698)
  6. William Whipple (chr 16 May 1652 – 9 Mar 1711/1712)
  7. Benjamin Whipple (chr 4 Jun 1654 – 11 Mar 1703/1704)
