      !NATURALIZATION: 13 May 1640: Freeman; and same date taxed 120 pounds, and he was on the committee to assess the tax. Ordered that silver plate pass at 5s. per ounce, Indian corn at 5s. per bushel, wheat at 7s. and rye at 6s. (All these being taken at such values, in payment of taxes.) At Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts. (Austin, p. 262)

      !RESIDENCES: "John Whipple's house, which is one of the most famous homes of its period and locale, was built on a lot formerly belonging to Mr. John Fawn, who received a grant of a house lot recorded 13 January 1637. He had previously received a grant of a six-acre tillage lot in December 1634, and since tillage lots were granted only to house owners, we may infer that he acquired both at the earlier date. Mr. Fawn built a house on the lot, which he sold in December 1638. Franklin Waters in _Puritan Homes_ says that the present John Whipple house cannot possibly be the same structure erected by Mr. Fawn, for Elder John left 'an humble estate.' The estate of his son, Captain John Whipple, was inventoried at 3,314 pounds, and therefore the present house must have been built between 1669 and 1683. At what exact date John Whipple took possession of the Fawn house is not certain, but the town records state that he was living there in 1642." --D.V. Norris, p. 6.
