John Sipple's settlement is in Will Book 'F', p. 510, but there is a lengthy court case in Box 79, Bundle 148, May 1866. It has something to do with money he owed and did not pay, or something like that. More About JOHN W. SIPPLE, SR.:

Volume One- pp. 444-450. CHAPTER XXII. PUBLIC EDUCATION. THE early Swedish settlers are said to have been intelligent and it is reasonable to suppose that they had some system of instruction among them. After the Amsterdam Company purchased New Amstel, or New Castle, of the Dutch West India Company, in 1658, they sent ministers and teachers to the colony; and after Delaware became attached to Penn’s proprietorship, in 1682, it appears that steps were taken to provide for the education of the people; but Delaware became a separate colony in 1753, and from that time until 1792 no provision was made for public or free schools. The children of the wealthy were educated at private pay schools, a system which has continued in some localities until the present. These old pay schools or academies, were some of them well conducted, and are held in grateful remembrance by many of the older people of the present, but it is plain that this class of schools left the poor without an opportunity to obtain an education. When the Constitution of 1792, was framed, this defect was recognized, and provision was made "for establishing schools and promoting the arts and sciences," but the Legislature did not carry out this requirement until February 9, 1796, when an act was passed providing that the moneys received from marriage and tavern licenses, from the date of the act to January 1, 1806, be applied to this fund. The time was afterwards extended until 1820. Section 7 of this act provides "That the said fund shall be applied to the establishment of schools in the several hundreds or districts of the respective counties of the State for the purpose of instructing the children of the inhabitants thereof in the English language, arithmetic and such other branches of knowledge as are most useful and necessary in completing a good English education, and that the same shall not be applied to the erecting or supporting of any academy, college or university in this State." The money thus accumulated was invested and constituted a fund sufficient to warrant the Legislature in 1817, in passing an act appropriating a portion thereof for the education of poor children. Under this act from three to five persons were appointed as trustees in each hundred to superintend its distribution for educating poor children, who were to be instructed in reading, writing and arithmetic. The trustees had full power to select the teachers and fix the salary; $1000 was annually appropriated from the school fund to each county under this act. The teachers were required to keep a regular and distinct account of all moneys received and expended, the names, ages and condition of the children, and their progress in learning, and to make reports to the county treasurer whose duty it was to present them to the General Assembly. The trustees under this act were for New Castle County, Brandywine Hundred, Robert Forward, Jas. Grubb, Chas. Tatem; Christiana Hundred, Thos. Baldwin, Geo. Morris, Edward Roche, Jas. Brindley, Jno. McCalmont; Mill Creek Hundred, Andrew Reynolds, Washington Rice, Ellis Saunders; White Clay Creek Hundred, George Gillespie, David Morrison, David Nivin; New Castle Hundred, John Crow, Samuel Moore, James R.
