I just received a tip from Blaine Whipple that he has posted a new article on the origin of Bocking, England--the hometown of the Whipples who settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts, in 1638. Visit his article at http://blainewhipple.com/family-life-in-early-england/origin-of-bocking-the-whipples-english-home-town/. (Those two Whipple brothers are Matthew (b. about 1590, d. 28 Sep 1647) and John (b. 6 Sep 1632, d. 22 Jun 1669.)
(Note: The John mentioned above is not the same person as the John Whipple born later than either of the two brothers, and who arrived in Dorchester, Massachusetts in about 1632, migrating later to Providence, Rhode Island.)
Thank you, Blaine, for another interesting article on your ancestors!
