Hi Sandi in Vancouver
Saw your WITHAM posting.
I am into the WHITHAM name in Woodford [Bridge] .
My wife's maternal grandfather Ernest Walter CHAPLIN married Elizabeth Sophia
WHITHAM in 1896 in Leytonstone,London. Elizabeth was born in Woodford in 1874,
parents George [born Woodford Bridge]and Hannah WHITHAM.
A possible link might be via the latter's only known son, Alfred WHITHAM,shown
on 1881 census at 1 Mill lane, Woodford with parents, age 15, sch.,born
I have no other sighting of him however.
I have the WHITHAM line back to Jonathan WHITHAM born c 1738.
I can't help you with your Canadian ancestors.
Please see my CHAPLIN homepage on http://members.aol.com/FamNorman/norman.html
Look at the Jonathan Whitham descendants report and also turn to the contents
section of the Book under Ernest Chaplin for the Whitham details.
