  • 1. Captain JOHN WHIPPLE, one of the early settlers at Providence, R. I., was born in England about 1616 or 1617, and died May 16, 1685. What part of England he came from is not known. History states that in 1630 about fifteen hundred persons landed in Boston from England. "Oct. 3, 1632, he was ordered to pay 3s. 4d. to his master, Israel Stoughton, for wasteful expenditure of powder and shot." As he was apprenticed to Stoughton, it is only fair to suppose that he came to this country with him. In 1637, he received a grant of land at Dorchester Neck. He married his wife, Sarah, at Dorchester about the year 1639-40, and they united with the church at Dorchester in 1641. He was a house-carpenter by trade, and owned a house and forty or fifty acres of land near Neponset village. He lived at Dorchester about eighteen years, and during that time there were born unto him six sons and two daughters.
  • He sold his house and land to James Minot in 1658, and removed to Rhode Island, settling at Providence, with his family, he received appropriation July 29, 1659. He had two sons and one daughter born at Providence, making in all eleven children. In 1660, he received a grant of land in Louisquisset. He also owned land in several other places, as mentioned in his will. February 19, 1665, he had lot 45 in the division of lands. May 31, 1666, he took the oath of allegiance to King Charles II, as did also his eldest son John. .... etc.
  • Captain Whipple lived in Providence about twenty-six years; during this period he experienced many hardships and privations, such as attend the first settlers of a new country; but among the many losses he had to meet, there could be none greater than the loss of his wife, who died in 1666, living with him only about seven years after they first came to Providence, and leaving in his care a family of several small children, the youngest an infant. He died May 16, 1685, and with his wife was buried in a garden-lot near his house. After several years, they with others of the family were reinterred at the North Burying Place. The following are the inscriptions on their tombstones :
  • .... etc.
  • Children of John (1) and Sarah Whipple:
    • 2. I. .... etc.
    • 5. IV. ELEAZER, born in Dorchester, 1645; died in Providence, August 25, 1719; baptized March 8, 1646. He took the oath of allegiance in 1667, and was a member of the general assembly in 1670. January 26, 1669, he married Alice, daughter of Thomas and Alice Angell. She was born in 1649, and died August 13, 1743.
