WHITFIELD

[WHIF611] William Whitfield m. Mary Mullinex
. [WHIF621] Thomas Whitfield m. Mary Woods
. . [WHIF632] Mary Whitfield m. [JNSN631] Thomas Johnson

 [WHIF611] William Whitfield married (at Huyton, 24th December 1682) Mary Mullinex. They had several children as follows:

Alan (oldest son & heir), mentioned in his father's will;

Henry, mentioned in his father's will;

Elizabeth (baptised at Hale, 24th September 1689 IGI);

John (younger son, baptised at Hale, 24th March 1691 IGI), mentioned in his father's will;

[WHIF621] Thomas (youngest son, born at Halewood, baptised at Hale, 21st March 1692-93), mentioned in his father's will as being the youngest son, married Mary Woods, see later.

William "Whitefield", yeoman of Halewood, died 1695, evidently between 12th and 19th December. His will, dated 12th December 1694, refers to his wife Mary, eldest son Alan, youngest son Thomas, and other sons Henry and John. His wife Mary and brother John were the executors of his will, and the Inventory (dated 19th December 1694), showed the total value of his estate as being 91. 4s. 4d.

[WHIF621] Thomas Whitfield (born 1693) married (at Farnworth, 11th April 1721) Mary Woods (born at Bold, 13th November 1700, baptised at Farnworth, 28th November 1700, daughter of Richard Woods). However, there were four Thomas Whitfield baptisms around 1682-91, one each at Farnworth (1682), Liverpool (1687), Childwall (1691) and Hale (1693), so the following three baptisms could even be of children of three different fathers. However, a Thomas had at least three children as follows:

William (born at Widnes, baptised at Farnworth, 23rd August 1723);

[WHIF632] Mary (born at Halebank, baptised at Hale, 30th May 1731), married Thomas Johnson, see later;

Thomas (born at Allerton, baptised as Childwall, 10th June 1739).

[WHIF632] Mary (born at Halebank, 1731, daughter of Thomas) married (at Prescot, 4th June 1759) [JNSN631] Thomas Johnson (born 1730, see JOHNSON).
