George Whitney, Gent., parentage unknown but perhaps descended from George and Julian (-----) Whitney. He was probably the "Geo. Whitney, of Icombe, Worcs., gent. Aged 52" who was a deponent in a Chancery deposition in 1626, making him born circa 1574.[1]

He married ----- Savage of Worcestershire. Were they the "George Whitney, Gent. and Mris. Mary [?Sabedy]" who were married at Icomb, 6 Feb 1608?[2] Apparently the name "Sabedy" is difficult to read in the parish register.

In 1595 he and his brother-in-law Thomas Mill were involved in a lawsuit against their cousin Eustace Whitney.

In 1620 he was involved in a lawsuit brought by Edward Sheldon, Esq.

He was of Icomb, Gloucestershire.

Huband is a surname, with some members located in Worcestershire, England. Could either George or Mary's mother have been a Huband?
