Samuel3 Whitney (Samuel2, Samuel1), son of Samuel2 and possibly his wife Sarah (-----) Whitney, was born say 1680. His will was written 1746 and probated 1765.[1] He may have been the Samuel Whitney who died 21 Dec 1752.[2] In his will, he is described as being a mariner, having a wife Elizabeth and children (unnamed).[3]

He married Elizabeth -----. She "widow of St. George's Tribe", married secondly, 25 Feb 1782, Daniel Butt, "widower of St. George's Tribe".[4] [See Notes below.]

In 1727, Samuel Whitney was listed in the Bermuda Assessment, residing St. David's Island, St Georges Tribe.

In a deed dated 23 May 1712, "Samuel Whitney the Elder of St. George Parish, Planter," gave land to "my son" Samuel Whitney the Younger, also of Davids Island, mariner.[5] He married Elizabeth (-----),[6] and his will, dated 9 Jun 1746, mentions "sons and daughters" but does not name them.[7]

Children of Samuel3 and Elizabeth (-----) Whitney:

i. (perhaps) Samuel4 Whitney, b. say 1710.

Notes

His widow Elizabeth seems too old to have been the bride of Daniel Butt in 1782. Perhaps that was a widowed daughter-in-law.
