Whittington 1: Whittington of Notgrove, Whittington of Pauntley, Whittington of Staunton
The upper parts of this pedigree are to be viewed with some caution although largely supported by acknowledged sources such as VCH.
Sir Guy Vyteinsen in Normandy
1. Sir Richard Vyteinsen in Normandy
A. Sir Guy Vyteinsen in Normandy
i. Sir Guy de Vytientson in Normandy a 1070, to England
Noting that Guy's grandson's wife is reported to have died in 1284, it is likely that EITHER Guy was very young when he came to England and he & his son did not have their successor until late in life OR there are one or more missing generations OR one or more of the dates is/are wrong.
a. Sir Guy de Witinton
1 Sir William Whittington
m Maud de Solers d 1284, dau of John de Solers
A Sir William Whittington of Pauntley, Gloucestershire b c1280, d 1359
m 1352 Joan Mansell dau of William Mansell, widow of Sir Thomas de Berkeley of Coberley
Various web sites show Sir Robert, shown below as surgeon to the King and successor to his brother William, as brother of this William even though that Robert was born some 70 years after William's mother died. We presume that there was at least one missing generation. There is clearly some confusion here. VCH Worcestershire, vol 4, Staunton mentions William Whittington, who married Catherine Staunton, as brother of Lord Mayor Dick and probably father of Robert who inherited Staunton but possibly brother of that Robert a 1396, 1429 with William, Robert & Richard's father being a William..

Wh15-1. John Whittington of Pawntley Pauntley d 1525
Visitation provides 2 pedigrees for this family, the first shows John 's parentage and shows him as married twice, to Elizabeth Milborne mother of John, Alexander & Christopher and to Elizabeth Croftes mother of Thomas & William. The second starts with John and does not mention the marriage to Elizabeth Croftes, showing Elizabeth Milborne as mother of Thomas, John, Alexander, Margery & Jane. We provisionally combine these as shown below but this is subject to review.
