Hi..
I am a descendent thru Joseph, Thomas's older brother. My line is John, Joseph, Caleb, Ephriam, Jonah, Gideon, William Hosea, William Wood, Elizabeth, Norman(me).
If you care to trade, I have quite a bit of Witherbee info, including John's 2nd marriage, and some on the How family, Thomas's mother. Norm

Do you know where this family originated in the UK? I have some details about Witherbys from Norfolk/Suffolk which might tie in with this family.

Diana- Thanks for posting. I show John Witherby born in Suffolk around 1642. From there I'm stuck, so if you have anything preceeding this-- GREAT!

I have a John WITHERBY b 1602, d 1670, wheelwright of Stowlangtoft, Suffolk UK who married Anne??? His son, also John was b 1657, d 1688, also a wheelwright from Stowlangtoft (or Haughley nearby). he was apprenticed on London 1673, married Lucretia ???. John Jr had 2 brothers, Thomas b 1661, Francis b 1665, d 1665 and a daughter Elizabeth b 1666 all at Stowlangtoft. John & Lucretia's son Thomas, b 1687, d 1777 m 1715 Elizabeth Pattison. From there on I have a huge family history. One of the branches founded a legal stationery business in London (still there), and my husband's great grandfather, Herbert Witherby b 1843 was a vicar. The family originally came from Norfolk - Thomas Witherby was a freeman of Norwich in 1379, and a Robert de Witherby was rector of Hokering in 1288! Do let me know direct by e-mail if you would like some of this sent to you by snail mail. I am not good on attachments! - Diana

Dear Norm - are you interested in the Witherbys of Norfolk & Suffolk, UK? If so I will copy some of the information I have and send it when I reply to Wendie. But I shall need a snail mail address, as it is too much to send as an attachment. Good wishes - Diana Riley

Hi Diana,
My husband is a direct descendant of William Witherby, b.1758 andd.1840. His father was Thomas b. 1719 d. 1797 m. Elizabeth. His brother George Henry b. 1766 d. 1865 was the father of Richard who in turn was the father of Herbert, your husbands Grandfather. It appears we have a family connection.
I would be most interested to hear from you some time.
Greetings from Australia.
Regards Anne Witherby.
