is outdated and incorrect.

Alternate parents: Alice Whitney, her parents were Jonathan Whitney and Lydia ? Jonathan was born February 15, 1635 in Isleworth, Middlesex, England. He married Lydia abt 1655 in Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts. Jonathan's parents were John Whitney and Elinor Bray. John was born in 1589 in London, England and died June 1, 1673 in Watertown, MA. John's parents were Thomas Whitney and Mary Bray. Thomas was born July 14, 1560 in Lambert Marsh, Surrey, England and died April 14, 1637 in London. He married Mary Bray May 12, 1583 in London. Elinor Bray's father was Thomas Bray, born in 1599 in England. Mary Bray was the daughter of Sir John Bray and Margaret Haslonde. Sir John Bray was born in 1534 in London and died December 6, 1615 in London. Sir John's parents were Richard Bray, born abt 1508 in London, and Margaret Sandes, born abt 1512 in London. I have been trying to find a link between these Brays and the de Braye family, who were the Barons of Braye.
