Whalley was an English military leader during the English Civil War and was one of the regicides who signed the death warrant of King Charles 1.

Whalley's grave, with that of another of the regicides John Dixwell is in the centre of "the Green" in New Haven, Connecticut close to the rear wall of the Congregational Church on the "Green," or park. Rudely cut headstones of brown stone were placed to mark the graves, and still remain, though nearly sunk in the soil less than a foot above ground. The only inscription visible is E. W. on one and J. D. on the other in large letters, indicated that Edward Whalley and John Dixwell were buried there. The descendant of John Dixwell have erected an appropriate monument and placed a fence around the little burial plot.

Gravesite Details Taken partially from the NY Times story dated August 23, 1905 by J. H. Savage.
