    From Wikipedia:

    Col. Joseph Whipple Sr. was a wealthy merchant in the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, and active in the civil affairs of the colony during the first half of the 18th century. The son of John Whipple and Sarah Whipple, who were early settlers of Dorchester in the Massachusetts Bay Colony and later of Providence, Whipple was born in Providence, the 10th of 11 children. He began his public service to the colony in 1698, selected as a Deputy from Providence, and served in that capacity for a majority of the years until 1728. He also served on the Providence Town Council for 15 years between 1703 and 1729, and was an Assistant in 1714. From 1719 to 1720 he was Colonel of the regiment of militia for the mainland. In 1696 he and others were granted a lot on which to build a schoolhouse, and in 1710 he was licensed to keep a public house, paying 20 shillings for the privilege. Whipple died in 1746, leaving a sizable estate to his children and grandchildren. He was buried in the North Burial Ground in Providence.

    Notes:

    He was a carpenter and a tavernkeeper. Arrived first in Dorchester, 1632, as an unmarried servant, then to Providence in 1658.

    From Wikipedia:

    The first mention of Whipple's name in colonial records was in October 1632 when he was ordered to pay a small fine to his master, Israel Stoughton, for wasting powder and shot. In 1637 he received a grant of land in Dorchester, and in 1641 he and his wife joined the church there. During the next 17 years, he raised a large family in Dorchester, where eight of his 11 children were baptized. In 1658 he sold his homestead and lands in Dorchester and moved with his family to Providence, where he was received as a purchaser on 27 July 1659.

    In February 1665 he was given a lot in a division of lands, and the following year took an oath of allegiance in Providence. In 1666 he served as a deputy to the General Assembly, a position he held for seven of the next 11 years. In 1669 and again in 1670 he was paid for allowing the Providence Town Council to meet at his house, probably referring to his tavern for which he was later granted a license in 1674. He held a number of positions in Providence, including treasurer in 1668, surveyor in 1670 and 1671, selectman in 1670 and 1674, and moderator in 1676.

    The year 1675 brought the most devastating event to afflict Rhode Island for the entire colonial period when King Phillip's War erupted, bringing the bulk of its destructive force on the Rhode Island colony. All of Warwick and Pawtuxet were destroyed, and much of Providence was as well. As the war wound down in 1676, Indian captives were given as slaves to those residents who remained during the war, and on 14 August 1676 Whipple was so entreated as being one of those "who staid and went not away."

    Thomas Angell was one of the four men who wintered with Roger Williams at Seekonk, Plymouth Colony in early 1636, and then joined him in founding the settlement of Providence Plantation in what became the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. He was a minor at the time of his arrival, but his name appears on several of the early documents related to the settlement of Providence. In the early 1650s, he became active in the affairs of the town, serving as commissioner, juryman, and constable.
