My Best Guess

Whittle Family Tree I promised earlier to share my thoughts on who could possibly belong to whom in this family. My ideas are my own and should not be taken as anything more than my ideas and potential leads to be explored. They are being placed here and not on Ancestry since we all know …

A Listing of Whittle’s

We don’t know the ages of the individuals (especially on the older marriages) and we don’t know if these are first or second marriages. Marriages: By 1646 – …
