Robert Whitney, Gent., (Hugh, Hugh, Hugh, Robert), son of Hugh Whitney, baptized 22 May 1673, Wrenbury, Cheshire, England,[1] died after he wrote his will 3 Feb 1726[/7?] and before it was probated 19 Mar 1729. His son apparently did not probate the will in a timely manner, as on 15 Mar 1749 Hugh was deceased and Robert's widow Dorothy renounced being his replacement, recommending Thomas Craddock instead.

He married Dorothy -----. She died after 23 Mar 1749/50 when she resided Wrenbury, Cheshire, England.

In 1714, he was listed in the Poll Books as "Robert Whitney, Esq", owning the freehold Newhall Place, but residing 6 miles away in Whitchurch, Shropshire.[2]

Children of Robert and possibly Dorothy (-----) Whitney (order uncertain):

i. Hugh Whitney, b. say 1700, d. bef. 23 Mar 1749/1750. He was apparently the Hugh Whitney who sold the manor in 1744.
ii. Elizabeth Whitney, bp. 3 Mar 1702/3, Wrenbury, Cheshire, England.[3]
iii. Dorothy Whitney, bp. 18 Apr 1704, Wrenbury, Cheshire, England,[4] m. ----- Atcherley.[5]
