  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from Joanne Lahr-Kreischer to the Whipple Web Site, January 1998, citing Capt. John Whipple (1617-1685) and his Descendants by Clair A. Newton Hemmenway, p. 65. Gives name as Nicholas Bacon. In follow-up email, Joanne reports that Claire Newton's information IS wrong. James Arnold's Vital Records of Rhode Island: Smithfield Marriages, p. 78 lists "Whipple, Hope and Nicholas Brown April 22, 1744."

      !SOURCE: Email from Doug Tucker (undisclosed at example dot net) to the Whipple Web Site, 19 Feb 1998, states that Richardson family records give Nicholas' surname as Brown. Follow-up email received 5 Mar 1998.
