In our previous research we had found the burial of a John Whaples of Great Waltham on 29 April 1638. We had tentatively suggested that this might have been John Whaples senior, husband of Mary Collett. However, the will of William Whaples [John senior's father] (dated January 1644) referred twice to [John senior], with no indication that [he] was deceased, as we would expect in a legal document if this were the case. We now wondered whether the burial on 29 April 1638 might in fact have been that of the John Whaples who was baptised on 13 December 1618 at Great Waltham. It had been suggested that the omission of John from his brother William's will supports the theory that John had emigrated [i.e. was John Whipple who emigrated to Dorchester, MA in 1632]; but equally it might reflect the fact that John was dead.We searched further in the burial records of Great Waltham, which we had previously searched up to 1650 only. In searching up to 1675 we found the following entries, which seem verly likely to relate to John Whaples senior and his wife Mary née Collett:Great Waltham, EssexNeither John nor Mary appears to have left a will.We confirmed the entry for the marriage of John Whaples and Mary Collett ... 19 Jan 1617/18 John Whaples et Ma: Collet
