- John Whipple (c. 1617 - 1685) was an early settler of Dorchester in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, who later settled in Providence in the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, where the family became well established.
- The first mention of Whipple's name in colonial records was in October 1632 when he was ordered to pay a small fine to his master, Israel Stoughton, for wasting powder and shot. In 1637 he received a grant of land in Dorchester, and in 1641 he and his wife joined the church there. During the next 17 years, he raised a large family in Dorchester, where eight of his 11 children were baptized. In 1658 he sold his homestead and lands in Dorchester and moved with his family to Providence, where he was received as a purchaser on 27 July 1659.
- In February 1665 he was given a lot in a division of lands, and the following year took an oath of allegiance in Providence. In 1666 he served as a deputy to the General Assembly, a position he held for seven of the next 11 years. In 1669 and again in 1670 he was paid for allowing the Providence Town Council to meet at his house, probably referring to his tavern for which he was later granted a license in 1674. He held a number of positions in Providence, including treasurer in 1668, surveyor in 1670 and 1671, selectman in 1670 and 1674, and moderator in 1676.
- The year 1675 brought the most devastating event to afflict Rhode Island for the entire colonial period when King Phillips War erupted, bringing the bulk of its destructive force on the Rhode Island colony. All of Warwick and Pawtuxet were destroyed, and much of Providence was as well. As the war wound down in 1676, Indian captives were given as slaves to those residents who remained during the war, and on 14 August 1676 Whipple was so entreated as being one of those "who staid and went not away."
- Whipple wrote his will on 8 May 1682, and it was proved three years later on 27 May 1685. His wife had died in 1666, aged about 42, and he and his wife were buried on their own land, but were later moved to the North Burial Ground after its opening in 1700.
- With his wife Sarah, Whipple had 11 children, the first eight born in Dorchester, and the remainder born in Providence. His oldest son, John, married first Mary Olney, the daughter of Thomas Olney and Mary Small, and secondly Rebecca Scott, the widow of John Scott (son of Richard Scott and Catharine Marbury). Sarah married John Smith, Samuel married Mary Harris, and Eleazer married Alice Angell, the daughter of Thomas and Alice Angell. Mary married Epentus Olney, the son of Thomas Olney and Mary Small, William's wife was named Mary, and Benjamin married Ruth Mathewson. David married first Sarah Hearndon, and secondly Hannah Tower, and Abigail married first Stephen Dexter, the son of colonial President Gregory Dexter, and secondly William Hopkins, the son of Thomas Hopkins. Whipple's tenth child, prominent merchant Joseph Whipple, married Alice Smith, and his youngest child, Jonathan, married first Margaret Angell, the daughter of Thomas Angell, and secondly a woman named Anne.
- A grandson of Whipple, Joseph Whipple, Jr. became deputy governor of the colony, and a great grandson, Joseph Whipple, III, was also a deputy governor. Another great grandson, Stephen Hopkins was a governor of the colony, Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court, and signer of the Declaration of Independence.

- Genealogical notes of the Whipple-Hill families, together with fragmentary records of other families by Hill, John Whipple
- 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 :

- iii. Jane (Jana or Johane), 9-13-1587; married (1) Henry Caldam, 1613, (2) Edward Feast, 1618 or 1619.
- iv. Matthew, abt 1590; died, Ipswich, Mass. 9-28-1647; married (1) Anne Hawkins, 5-7-1622, (2) Rose Chute 11-13-1646 in Ipswich.
- v. Elizabeth, 4-14-1594, married Isaac Green, 9-3-1618.
- vi. John, 8-29-1596, died Ipswich, Mass. 6-30-1669; married (1) Susanna Clark, 8-28-1621 in London, (2) Janet Dickinson after 1662 in Ipswich.

- viii. Amy, 1-20-1605; married William Hoston, 10-31-1626.
- INFORMATION ON THE Matthew Whipple, Sr. family is sketchy but enough is known to establish the beginning.1 Parents of Matthew and his wife Joan have not been identified. The Margaret Whipple buried in Bocking June 13, 1577 is presumed to be Matthew's mother.2 .... etc.
- .... Matthew was buried January 16, 1618-19, probably in his late fifties. .... etc.
- Matthew's will was very particular in it details. He noted his "messauge with the yard and garden and orchards" was located on "Bradford street in Bocking." He named eldest son Matthew and son John, daughters Jane, Elizabeth, Maria, Amye, Johane, and Anne Pepper; grandchildren Hercules and Margaret Arthur and Henry and Ande Caldam, "my sister, the wife of Richard Rathbone," and Hercules Stephens. With the exception of Stephens, every beneficiary was identified as a relative.
- Stephens may have been a brother to the Joan Whipple buried in 1612, making him Matthew's brother-in-law. The Bocking parish records include a Joanna Stephens christened November 15, 1562. This make her a plausible age to be the mother of Anna christened September 1, 1583 and identified as the daughter of Matthew Whipple. .... etc.

1. John Smith I was born ABT 1623 in County Corchester, England , and died 2 OCT 1710 in Barnstable, Barnstablle County, Massachusetts. He married Susannah Hinckley 13 JUN 1643 in Barnstable, Barnstable County, Massachusetts, daughter of Samuel Hinckley , Sr. and Sarah Soule. She was born ABT 6 NOV 1625 in Tenterden, County of Kent, England, was christened 6 NOV 1625 in Tenterden, Kent, England, and died 1667 in Barnstable, Barnstablle County, Massachusetts.
Children of John Smith I and Susannah Hinckley are:...

1. Martha (Mrs. James E.) Mc Court, American Descendants of Rev. John Smith who married Susanna Hinckely, 13 Jun. 1643, The, pg. 3, Martha (Mrs. James E.) Mc Court, 9505 S. E. 13th St., Vancouver, Wa. 98669-3632. "Data sent in linking her with John Chadwick Jr., living in Watertown, Ma. and having 9 children has been disproved by Robert Massard, genealogist from Wellsley Hills, Ma. who sent excerpted copies of pages from the history of the Chadswick and Allied Families of Rochdale, Lancastershire, Eng.; Watertown, Malden, Medford, Warren (Western), Ma.; Sheldon, Vt.; and Brentwood and other cities in Calif. 1583 - 1983 by David Arnaudo (1983). It lists two John Chadwick Jr.'s the first b. 22 Dec. 1644 m. Sarah Taylor (not Smith) res. Watertown, Ma. and produced 9 children formerly attributed to Sarah Smith. So we can discount our previous data as an error. A Genelogical Dictionary of First Settlers of New England by James Savage Vol. 1 pg. 351 listed same John Chadwick Jr . m. Sarah __ and had some of the formerly listed children' so this may be where the error was made. The second John Chadwick Jr. of Laden and Boxford, was born 1651, six years after Sarah Smith. See Notes on Descendants of John and Joan Chadwick and Related Families by Austin D. Kilham, 1966 - John Chadwick Jr. b. 1651 m. Mary Barlow (not Sarah Smith). Thus we can discount our Sarah Smith marrying either of these 2 John Chadwick's. Children formerly listed for her acutally belong to John and Sarah (Taylor) Chadwick."
