Before the Whipple Database
came online, the Whipple Website lacked a convenient way to
view descendancy charts. Now, if you prefer to use the
you can view any individual's descendants by
clicking/touching the link "View descendants in the Whipple
Database" on his/her page. This page (with its links) is
probably no longer necessary, and may be removed in the

Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire: Proposed Ancestral Origin of Matthew
Whipple of Bocking, Essex, and a Whipple Ancestral Line for Arthur

Whipples of Providence, RI

MA, and Providence, RI. The Whipple Website probably
knows of more of John's descendants than of any other
Whipple. Researchers have not been able to identify his
parents (... yet?).
