notes

According to Pope's Pioneers, Katherine Whelden, eldest daughter of Gabriel, wrote to a John Shanvat of Nottingham in a letter dated 29 June 1639 concerning the drowning death of Martha Weelden in Dedham, Mass, some 12 days earlier, probably her sister Martha.  The full content of that letter is unknown, as is the identity of Shanvat, although he might have been related to Gabriel's aunt by marriage, Christobel, whose will mentions her sister Morris Chamlet. 

This is the first mention of the Whelden family in America.

      Internet source ( http://www.murrah.com/gen/whelden.htm ) says the following about Catherine's mother and father:

Gabriel Whelden

The first known Whelden in the line in America was Gabriel Whelden of Plymouth. He is believed to have been born in England, but the date and place are not proven. It is commonly stated that Gabriel Whelden originated in Nottinghamshire, but no records have been found to substantiate it. The author Pope reports he found a record of a land sale in Middlesex county files where Gabriel in 1653 sold land he owned in Nottingham to William Cross. The head archivist of these records, Elizabeth Bouvier has been unable to find any such record.

The Wheeldon/Wheelton family, which has not yet been connected to Gabriel Wheldon, finds the earliest spelling located to-date is Whyldon (christenings of sons of William Whyldon at Astbury, Cheshire: Matthew, 14 Dec 1574; John 14 Mar 1584; per LDS IGI ). In "Homes of Family Names in Great Britain", Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Company, 1968) H. B. Guppy noted that the surname Wheelton as "peculiar" or "confined mostly to this county [Cheshire]." He indicated it was more specifically associated with Macclesfield. The surname is concentrated in the ancient Parish of Prestbury, which originally included Macclesfield. Additionally, "pockets" of Wheeldon ~ Wheelton individuals settled in the Cheshire / Derbyshire / Staffordshire border area known as "The Potteries."

Was Margaret (Oguina) a Wampanoag?

Gabriel married Margaret Diguina (or Oguina), who may have been Gabriel's second wife. Some say that Margaret was a Wampanoag Indian, although it is hotly disputed by many genealogists. Accordig to the Wampanoag theory Oguina was a child of 6 years in 1608 when a British fishing vessel picked her up along with other Wampanoags along a beach on Cape Cod. She was taken to England where she baptized and given the English name Margaret. She eventually married Gabriel Whelden.

Oguina was a daughter of Quadequina who in turn was a son of WAasaneginN. These geenrations were of the Algonkian nation of Massachusoi and tribe of Wampanoag.

Oguina's descent is as follows:

1- WASANEGIN, born by 1554

begot

2-QUADEQUINA, born 1576. This year is determined from the fact that he was born

in the year when the "Great Light" went out. European astronomers noted in 1576

that there was a Solar Eclipse. He, QUADEQUINA begot

3-OGUINA, born 1602 @ Wampanoag village in what is today Rhode Island.

Gabriel Whelden and Margaret (Oguina) had the following children:

Ruth Whelden, who married Richard Taylor, and who died December 1673 in Yarmouth, Barnstable County, Massachusetts.

Henry Whelden, who died 28 October 1694

Katherne Whelden

John Whelden, who died 20 November 1711

Ralph Whelden

Gabriel died January 1653/1654 in Malden, Massachusetts. Following is his Last Will and Testament:

In the name of God, and in obedience to his comand (according to my bounden duty) I, Gabriell Whelding, of the Towne and Church of Maulden, being weake and sicke in body, do make my last will. My body to be layd asleepe in the bed of the grave, in the Common buriing lace for the Inhabitants of this Towne.
