  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from Tom Whipple (undisclosed at example dot net) to the Whipple Website, 26 Jun and 14 Sep 1999, citing the research of Dan Whipple (undisclosed at example dot net).

      !NAME: "There has been considerable confusion as to my great grandfather's given names. He was christened Lysander Greenlief Whipple. The Southborough [Massachusetts] Vital Records have Lyander Greenlief and this somehow got into IGI. It is incorrect - doubtless a transcription error. Dan [Whipple] and I have verified that his correct first given name was Lysander. Dan has checked some directories for Boston and I have checked shipping lists for his voyage to Australia: both have Lysander. Further confusion arises since, when he was naturalised in New South Wales in 1860, he changed his name to William Francis Whipple - I can't say I blame him!" --T. Whipple

      !MOTHER: Vital Records of Southborough, MA to the end of the year 1849. "Southborough Births," p. 81 shows Leander Greenlief Whipple as the son of Edmund and Sophia, b. 23 May 1832: http://ma-vitalrecords.org/MA/Worcester/Southborough/Images/Southborough_B081.shtml . Post to the Whipple Website Facebook Group by Larry Adams, 29 Jan 2015, includes an uploaded transcription of William Francis Whipple's marriage record to Mary Loobey. That record gives Margaret Reilly as William's mother.

      !IMMIGRATION: "Migrated to Australia in 1833 aboard the barque 'Maria' arriving Melbourne on 24th October, ref: http://home.vicnet.net.au/~provic/185259/whachew.htm" --T. Whipple

      !BIRTH: The headstone inscription for his date of birth is incorrect. --T. Whipple

      !NATURALIZATION: Naturalised in NSW 13 Dec 1860, record No 965(4?) - the last number is indistinct. --T. Whipple

      !SOURCE: Blaine Whipple, 15 Generations of Whipples: Descendants of Matthew Whipple of Ipswich, Massachusetts, Abt 1590-1647: An American Story (Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 2007), 2:G443. Gives name Lysander Greenlief Whipple.

      !SOURCE: Post on 17 Oct 2014 to the Whipple Website Facebook group by Larry Adams of a photo of the gravestone of "William Francis Whipple, Born at Boston Mass U.S.A. May 23rd, 1830, Died at Orange, June 5th 1896, Aged 66 Years."
