Whitney, Henry Austin, Memoranda Relating to Families of the Name of Whitney in England, (Boston: 1859).

Back || Forward

The following pages, relating to Families of the name of WHITNEY, in England,

are, in part, the result of a search made by Mr. SAMUEL AUSTIN WHITNEY,
of Glassboro', New Jersey, in 1856, and since continued by H. G. SOMERBY, Esq.,
to ascertain the parentage of JOHN WHITNEY, who, with his wife ELINOR and five
sons, embarked at London in the month of April, 1635, for New England, and
who settled in Watertown in the following June, where he continued to dwell
until his death in 1673.

A greater part of the material here given is irrelevant to the subject of

the search; but the information is curious in itself, and may prove of service to
others. Ten copies have been printed.

H. A. W[hitney].
BOSTON, U. S. A., April, 1859.
