Sir Robert Whitney Jr., so to say... as the father, being approx. 17years old... at the time of Thomas´ birth... and still well and alive, according to the Whitney Research Group (WRG)... It´s not a bad theory... although, they say he (Sir Robert Whitney Jr.) died, without issue.

This is about the Sr. Sir Robert (there is a listing of his Children with further information, towards the bottom of the page. No link to Robert Jr. but birth/death info´s.) http://wiki.whitneygen.org/wrg/index.php/Family:Whitney,_Robert_(s1525-1567)_

This leads to the backround and discussion and references about Thomas Whitney´s Parentage. From the main page...
