The Whitham Family

This is my mother's maiden name.

The Whitham family have strong links with Yorkshire, although my maternal grandfather, Ralph Whitham, came south when he joined the Navy and was stationed at Portsmouth - and met my grandmother.

In the Victorian years, the family had a hard time of it as workers in the cotton mills.

If you want to follow the surname through, the best person to start with is my grandfather, Ralph Whitham.

Here are the individuals whose trees feature here:

Thomas Whitham 1861-????
Elizabeth Whitham 1865-????
Ralph Whitham 1904-1987
