Update:Witherington but which one?


Well-known member
With thanks to everyone who helped point me in the right direction to find my Witherington family. You all gave me a great deal to think about and attach to my tree; with this to hand I have recently spoken to a cousin in the Channel Islands, who confirmed that the Samuel Witherington born in 1890 is the correct one in my family. He married Alice Hannah Pitt and his parents were William Owen Witherington and Mary Ann.

I'm sure that I will be asking for more help with the Witherington's

Happy New Year to all.
