Thomas de Whitney ([poss.]Eustace, Eustace, Robert, ...), possibly son of Sir Eustace de Whitney, priest.

He was installed as rector of Whitney in 1345 with patron Sir Eustace de Whitney, who may have been his father.[1]

He was perhaps the "Thomas de Wytteneye to grant land in Michelmarsh to the prior and convent of St. Swithun's, Winchester, retaining land in Sparkford, Hants."[2]
