Birth: 1590

He was probably the son of Henry Whelden of Basford, Co.Nottinghamshire, England.

His will was dated Feb 11,1653/4, and it was proved Apr 4,1654.

His first wife was named Jane according to early records, and, though not clear, she was possibly the mother of his children. She was living at Basford as late as Aug 5,1637.

His second wife was Margaret, whom he likely married after 1639 in Massachusetts. Margaret was the wife of Gabriel named as sole heir and executrix of Gabriel's 1653/4 will. Her step-children protested the will in 1655.

Children(by first marriage): Thomas Whelden, Catherine Whelden Hopkins, Henry Whelden, Mary Whelden Taylor, Martha Whelden, John Whelden, Ruth Whelden Taylor, and John Whelden.


Gabriel Whelden of Yarmouth and Malden is the subject of an article in The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol 163, published October 2009. The marriage of his daughters Ruth and Mary to two different Richard Taylors is discussed in detail in Vol 165 of the Register (July 2011).
