----- Whitney, parentage unknown.

Nothing is known of this man, other than the names of his children as listed in their nephew Thomas Whitney's will. With the names in this family being so similar, could this family be related to the family of Thomas and Mary (-----)(Duppa) Whitney of Boughrood? That Thomas left land in Llanbedr to several of his sons.

Children (order uncertain, possibly incomplete):

i. ----- Whitney, of Llanbeder. He married ----- Vaughan, daughter of Thomas Vaughan.
