I've been working on the Whelpley/Whelply family actively since 1978. It is my maiden name. I don't usually post my data anywhere, since the work is not only mine but others, and I have not received permission to post it. You can look at www.rootsweb.com and probably find most, if not all, that you're looking for there. As for Abigail, there is no record of Darling's marriage. I agree with you that Abigail is most likely a Peck. "Peckland", the Peck family property, was slightly north and west of Mianus and Stamford, where the Whelpleys were living in close proximity in those early days. And William, who was arrested with Darling, was probably Abigail's brother. When Darling and his buddies made the raid on Stamford/Mianus, etc. he burned the church and the courthouse, so the records we would like to have for him were burned by him.
