I am not sure if my message was sent so am repeating it. I run a One-Name-Study-Group "Whittas Worldwide" (registered with GOONS). I have quite a bit of info on your Whitta family. Thomas Whitta who married Mary Stride was a grandson of Rev Thomas Whiita of Devon. If you have a family history programme which can handle GEDCOM files I will send you the family tree. You can communicate with me direct on "Rex.Whitta1@btopenworld.com" (preferable) or "firstname.lastname@example.org"
