Savage speculates that John Chipman came in the ship "White Angel" or "Friendship." According to a lengthy footnote in "Genealogical Research in England," NEHGS "Register," Vol 79, pg. 435, John Chipman came to America in May, 1637, at about age 16, as servant to Richard Derby, son of Christopher in whose home John had lived as a child. Christopher was likely his cousin (called his uncle in The Hamlin Family, pg. 88), although how related is not yet known.
"Elder Chipman was in Barnstable, 1649, and bought the homestead of Edward Fitzrandolphe, bounded north by the county road, east by the Hyannis road, west by the homestead of George Lewis, and south by the commons, containing eight acres. He probably removed to the Great Marshes, West Barnstable, about 1659; and bought from his brother-in-law, Lieut John Howland in 1672, forty five acres of land in Barnstable, bounded east by the lands of John Otis and William Crocker, north by the marsh. His connection with the church was most happy; his wife joined Aug. 7, 1650, and he Jan. 30, 1652-3. "Henry Cobb and John Chipman were chosen and ordained ruling elders of the church and were solemnly invested with office upon ye 14th day of April. Anno Dom. 1670;" Selectman. Barnstable; upon his second marriage he removed to Sandwich. He d. there, Apr. 7, 1708; his widow d. 1713, aged 71 years. " (From The Hamlin Family, pg. 88)"
