William Whipple's House

This is the house of William Whipple, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. (Read his Wikipedia entry.) Today his house, located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is a National Historical Landmark open to the public. We salute William and the other founding fathers for their role in the birth of the United States!

William has his own web site at

I've been told that we are related to William on my mothers side. I'd like to know where to start looking for the family relationship. Any ideas? Do you have the geneology?

William (the signer of the Declaration of Independence) had no children who grew to adulthood, so any relationship would be through his siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins or direct ancestors (parents, grandparents, etc.)

William's genealogy is at

Good luck!
