   p. 477-81: The Whipple Family - Among the first settlers of New England there were several by the name of Whipple. There were two brothers, Matthew and John, who came to this county about 1630 and settled in Ipswich, Mass., about the year 1635. John was born in England in 1616 or 1617 and was married to Sarah ____about 1640. He was a house carpenter by trade and at one time owned a house and 40 or 50 acres of land in what is now Neponset, Mass. This he sold to James Minot in 1658 and removed to Rhode Island. Of his eleven children all but the three youngest were born in Dorchester, Mass. The
   house he occupied in Providence was on the east side of the river a little north of Star Street, between North Main and what is now Benefit Street. He died May 16th, 1685. Of his children John was baptized March 9th, 1640, and married for his first wife Mary Olney. Their children were: Mary, who married a carder [Carder]; John, and Elnathan, married a Rice. His second wife was Rebecca, widow of John Scott. Their children were: Deliverance and Dorothy, who married a Rhodes. He died December 15th, 1700.
