Melton Mowbray
My partner is a Whitbread and would like to find the missing link between his side of the family and the famous brewery.

We've managed to go as far back as Henry Whitbread (baptised 19th Feb 1698 - died 10th July 1774. Henry was married to Anne Tysoe (died 28th May 1747).

We think Henry's mother was called Mary (birth circa 1670 - died 26th Oct 1746), and was married to William Whitbread (birth around 1666/1668). We assume that William's parents were William Whitbread (birth 1626 - died 1701) and Lettice Leeds. They married around 1648/49 at Cardington.

We can't find any further information on either of Henry's parents, William and Mary.

Any help or information would be appreciated.
