no confirmation that thomas is her son, here are some well studied theories, though.... some would say even confirmation, but it´s not.


Alleged Royal Ancestry of John Whitney  Whitney Family Groups > John Whitney Family > Alleged Royal Ancestry of John Whitney  Descents of John1 Whitney from the kings of England. There are also descents from David I, King of Scotland, Louis VI, King of France, Alfonso IX, King of Leon, various kings of Ireland and princes of Wales, and multiple descents from Charlemagne.  This information is from the following web site: The Phillips, Weber, Kirk, & Staggs families of the Pacific Northwest

I don´t believe there is any reason to change it, until confirmation, at least. As it is a good theory and 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...


one can also, access... a plethora on various Whitney lines and informations known to date by the Whitney Research Group(WRG)
