      !SOURCE: Blaine Whipple, 15 Generations of Whipples (Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 2007), vol. 1, pp. 970-971, 974, 975. "Thomas was called gentleman." Gives birth about 1536.
      In 1580-1 Thomas won a suit against Nicholas Everade, gentleman, and John Thrower, yeoman, both of Eye, Suffolk and was awarded £80 for an obligation entered into a decade earlier. In April 1588, Thomas contributed £25 toward the defense of the country at the time of the Spanish Armada. He was steward of the Manor of Brookes Hall near Ipswich, and kept the court there in 1595-6. In 1601, he was steward to Sir Thomas Cornwall, knight, lord of the Manor of Thorpe Abbotts. Thomas and Elizabeth sold one messuage, one garden, one orchard, three acres of meadow, and 10 acres of pasture with appurtenances in Dickleborough and Langmore to John Dallyson for £80, date unknown.

      Thomas' will, dated October 20, 1610, mentions his son Henry, wife Elizabeth, granddaughter Frances LeGrys; Thomas Whiple the younger and Thomas Brampton, nephews; daughter Margaret LeGrys, a widow; godchildren Ann Grey, Elizabeth Brampton, Anne Dene, now wife of Osborne, John Cotton, Edward Aldham, and Robert Morse; John Reve and Thomas Dixie, gentlemen. He died at Dickleborough September 8, 1612, owning one messuage, etc. in Thelton or Thelveton, lands, etc called Stone Close and Le Sike, lands in Scole, and freehold lands in Dickleborouth and Parleston (Billingford), all in Norfolk. His son, Henry, was his heir. Thomas' will suggests he was concerned about Henry's sense of responsibility: "To my son Henry, in the hope that God will reclaim him in his going astray and make him to know himself better, an annuity of £20... and all lands in Dickleborough that were my father's... but in the event of his falling out with his mother, all the lands are to go to the first son of his body."
