This family would be recorded in Canadian censuses, not yet examined, with the following exceptions:

  • 1881, York, York Co., ON, p. 36:

Alexander WHITNEY M M Irish 57 Ontario Farmer Church of England Jane WHITNEY M F Irish 47 Ireland - Church of England George WHITNEY M Irish 17 Ontario Farm Labourer Church of England Elizabeth WHITNEY F Irish 15 Ontario School Church of England Edward WHITNEY M Irish 11 Ontario School Church of England William J. WHITNEY M Irish 9 Ontario School Church of England Samuel WHITNEY M Irish 7 Ontario School Church of England

George's age seems wrong. He was about 25, not 17.

  • 1881, sons Richard, Alexander, and John not found.
