My ggg grandmother was Jane WHITTLE born 1800 (perhaps St Miguel, Azores, or lived there). I have information that could link her paternity to a Samuel WHITTLE.
Jane married James Grant CHRISTIE in Maker, Cornwall 1814. James was a merchant mariner at least between 1814-1822, he was baptised in 1787 in Inveravon Scotland and died in 1822. He had connections to Lloyds Shipping in Portugal 1818, where their daughter was born circa 1817.

After James death  in 1834 she immigrated to Australia as the "wife" of James' brother Charles CHRISTIE.

I am trying to research Jane's history and this is a major brick wall. Any help would be most appreciated.


Thanks for your work on the WHITTLE name, Jan

Hello

I have a couple of Whittle's in my tree.

My grt gran x4 Ann Whitte born 1810 in Walton le Dale nr Preston married a Robert Hodson. They were Roman Catholics as she is buried the RC grounds in Ford Cemetery, Liverpool. Date of death 3rd of March 1873. Intrestingly her son John was lost on board the Royal Charter than sunk in 1859 off the coast of North Wales, that's what it says on her grave stone anyway.

Ann Whittles parents were a John Whittle born 1784 Walton le Dale and Esther Fishwick (another common Preston name I believe)

Im not sure if this helps with your tree or not but I thought I'd share it and perhaps it may link to somebody else's?

Thanks

Thanks for reply Olie, much appreciated.  I believe my Whittles may have come from Leicester ENG and went to the Azores, Portugal.  The information you have provided do not appear on any information that we have. My ggg grandmother Jane b circa 1798 married James Grant Christie in Maker, Cornwall 1814.  Their first child Mary Jane was born in Portugal circa 1817.  Regards, Jan

Hi there,

I've been trying to research my family history on my mothers side, and came across not only this website, but also your research into the Whittle name itself.

My grandfather was a Whittle, originating from Bolton, who had two sisters named Alice and Edith, as well as a brother by the name of George.

If you are interested in more information please don't hesitate to contact.

P.S census records may show that he was married to a Martha (née McNally)

Kind regards and all the best

Hi, I know this is an old post but was looking to do something similar for my partner (who is a whittle from Shaw, Oldham) as a bit of a gift.
I was just wondering how you got on and if there was anything you could share?

Hi Rachel,
My grandmother was a Hamer and have the Hamers(Lancashire) from 1774. You may be interested in the Hamer side.
Going back to the Whittle family I have a Martha Whittle 1844-1881 from Harwood, Lancs who married James Hamer 1844-1904 from Tottington, Lancs.  Marthas' parents were John Whittle 1797- and Catherine Booth 1806-  .  siblings of Martha: Maria 1833-   , William 1844-1915, Levi 1849-1915 and Eileen 1852-    .
Don't know if any of this is useful to you, but if I can help let me know.
