First Generation

1. William1 Whittington (Capt.), son of Whittington, was born in England about 1616. William died before January 1, 1660 in Northampton Co., VA.

He married three times. He married Susan (wife of William Whittington) before 1647. He married Mary (wife of William Whittington) before 1654. He married Elizabeth Weston before 1659. William was in Northampton Co VA 1640, where he was a Lieutenant and Captain of the militia and member of the Court. He moved to Somerset Co. MD after 1650. His unborn child was Elizabeth. His third wife, Elizabeth Weston, married Capt. William Spencer after his death. Much has been written of Captain Whittington, his life and contributions to the eastern shore and will not be repeated. (ref: Clayton Torrence, Old Somerset; Meyer & Dorman, Adventures of Purse and Person, Woodrow T. Wilson, 34 Families of Old Somerset) William was probably related in some way to Andrew Whittington, also one of the first settlers of Somerset Co. MD. Andrew Whittington's daughters, Elizabeth & Ursula married into the Scarburgh and King families, and their descendants will find their way to connect to descendants of Captain William Whittington. William's parentage is unknown but he probably descends from the Whittingtons of County Gloucester and may be related in some way to the early settlers by that name in Talbot and Calvert Counties, MD. (Kelly Avant; Winona Pfander, "The Whittington-Brown Family History."
