I was just informed about a Tucker/Whitney connection in Bermuda. I'm not sure how relevant this is but I'll share what I have so far: I found that Francis William Whitney traveled at least a few times between British Guiana, Bermuda, and NY in the 1840's and 50's. He goes by 'F W Whitney' in the shipping records. Sometimes he traveled alone and sometimes with wife Susan and children He was on a ship called the 'Brig Falcon' that was commanded by Capt Pitt. The ship was owned by the Tuckers in Bermuda. My feeling is that he was involved in trade or may have been part of the crew. His father Henry Whitney was the Harbour Master of British Guiana and married a woman from Bermuda. I'm very curious if this Henry Whitney was originally from Bermuda. "Brig Falcon built 1841, keel about 55 1/2 feet, On deck 69 feet, width 21 1/4 feet. Owned by the Tuckers in Bermuda. Capt. Pitt commanded the Falcon until his death in 1854. Primarily used in the New York/Bermuda trade in the 1840's. In early 1850's made trips Bermuda to England" Tim Doyle <tim -at- greenscourt<mailto:tim -at- greenscourt>. com> To Sent by: whitney -at- rootsweb.com<mailto:whitney -at- rootsweb.com> whitney-bounces@r<mailto:whitney-bounces@r> cc ootsweb.com Subject Re: [WHITNEY] Francis William 05/20/2009 04:32 Whitney PM Please respond to whitney -at- rootsweb<mailto:whitney -at- rootsweb>. com David: This is very interesting! This Francis Whitney was probably one of Samuel Whitney's descendants who had not emigrated to the U.S. earlier. We don't currently have a lot of information on Bermuda Whitneys or this later time period. I have created a family group page for this family on our website, located at: <a href="http://wiki.whitneygen.org/wrg/index.php/Family:Whitney%2C_Francis_(c1819-a1880%29<http://wiki.whitneygen.org/wrg/index.php/Family:Whitney%2C_Francis_(c1819-a1880%29&gt">http://wiki.whitneygen.org/wrg/index.php/Family:Whitney%2C_Francis_(c1819-a1880%29<http://wiki.whitneygen.org/wrg/index.php/Family:Whitney%2C_Francis_(c1819-a1880%29&gt</a>; Please feel free to edit that page and add in any other details that you might have, including sources. We've found that getting the information that you know out on the website helps to get more eyes looking at it and connections to be made faster.
