Dear John, The IGI shows references to a few Frederick Whittinghams in the Great Houghton area of Yorkshire but they are not Parish Register or Bishops Transcript entries and are therefore somewhat suspect. Can you supply me with any dates? Birth or Marriage dates, for instance. That might help any search. The Whittinghams can certainly be traced in large numbers in the Preston, Lancashire area. In fact it may turn out that they originated from Whittingham, Lancashire which is very close to Preston. There are also many Whittinghams to be found in the Bradford, Skipton, Leeds area which is where my immediate lot come from. Durham and Northumberland has had quite a group also but I digress! Send me some more info if you can. Regards Jonathan.
