!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.

John Whipple House, Ipswich, Massachusetts

Owned and maintained by the Ipswich (Mass.) Historical Society, the original house was built before 1650 (possibly as early as 1638 by John Fawn), then sold to John Whipple "the Elder." The house grew in size, as did the generations of Whipples that lived there. Elder John's son, Captain John [Note: This is not the same person as Captain John Whipple of Dorchester, Mass., and Providence, R.I.] made a large addition in 1670, which more than doubled the size of the house. The next Whipple generation was Major John Whipple, who added a lean-to of considerable size at the back, completing the house's present-day form. (Source: Hugh Morrison, Early American Architecture from the First Colonial Settlements to the National Period [New York, Oxford University Press, 1952], pp. 54-55.)

Compare this John with his contemporary (also named John) who arrived in America about six years earlier and settled first in Dorchester, Massachusetts, then in Providence, Rhode Island.
