bullet John WHITNEY was born in 1592 in London, England. (9778)(9779) (9780) Genealogists cite any of three birth years for John:
1592 seems most likely. It is cited by Melville and Pierce (on pages 16 and 17). It is based upon a baptism date (baptism dates are also cited for his children). Other supporting records show him to have been 14 in 1607 and 21 in 1614.
1583 is cited by Cutter (638).
1589 is cited by William Whitney (516), Stearns (673), and Pierce (on pages 19 and 20) in an apparent contradiction of his support for 1592. It is based upon his reported age at death ("about 84" in 1673).
1600 is cited by genealogists who base his birth year on his recorded age of 35 when he emigrated in 1635. Several genealogists, including Pierce, firmly believe that the age dates recorded on that voyage, as well as those of his children and wife, are in error. He was christened on 20 Jul 1592 in St. Margaret's Church, Westminster (now part of London), England. (9781)(9782) He was educated Westminster School (now St. Peter's College) before 1607 in London, England. (9783)(9784) The school was established by Queen Elizabeth. He Apprenticed to William Pring of the Merchant Tailor's Company between 22 Feb 1607 and 1614 in London, England.(9785) (9786) The Merchant Tailor's Company was the most famous and distinguished trade guilds. He served 7 years from age 14 to 21, whereupon he was made free and became a member himself on 13 Mar 1614. He moved in May 1619 to Isleworth, Middlesex, England.(9787) (9788) About 9 miles from London. May have also moved to Westminster (673). He moved about Jan 1624 to Yorkshire, England. (9789)(9790) Moved, probably back to London. He emigrated in Jun 1635 to Massachusetts. (9791)(9792) (9793)(9794) (30) Most source suggest John left London or Ipswich with his wife and children aboard the Elizabeth and Ann. However, the Winthrop Society (086) does not record Eleanor coming on that ship. It suggests John left London in Mid-May in the Elizabeth and Ann with his children John (11), Richard (9), Nathaniel (8), Thomas (6), and Jonathan (1). That suggests that they arrived in late June. They settled in Watertown. He Granted 212 acres and purchased for residence 16 additional acres in Jun 1635 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (9795)(9796) (9797) The residential lot is now located at the intersection of Belmont and East Common Street in Waltham. He moved in Jun 1635 to Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony.(9798) (9799)(9800) (9801)(9802) He took the oath of a freeman on 3 Mar 1636 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (9803)(9804) (9805)(9806) (9807) He was Selectman between 1638 and 1655 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA.(9808) (9809)(9810) He was Constable (apponited by General Court) in 1641 in Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony. (9811)(9812) (9813) (9814) The constable collected the town taxes, supplied weights and measures, set watchmen, and inflicted the punishments of the courts (or found someone else to do it). Being elected so early shows that he was well respected in the community. He granted 198 acres by the town in 1642 in Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony.(9815) He was Town Clerk in 1655 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA.(9816) (9817) (9818) He signed a will on 3 Apr 1673 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (9819)(9820) (9821) His eight lots equaled 212 acres of land (673). He died on 1 Jun 1673 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (7948)(79) (9822) (9823)(9824) He was a Tailor. (9825) He left, according to his inventory,. He was educated Educated at Westminster School, but signed his will with an X.(9826) (9827) Melville describes well the conditions leading to the great migration, the period when John Whitney emigrated. During the period of the Reformation, the began a religious revolution that ultimately lead to a freedom to dissent. There was an increasing expectation of civil and religious liberty, but little results. From 1629 to 1640, Parliament never assembled and "the prevailing theory of right and justice was violated." Taxes were leveed without legislation. There was corruption and cronyism. Loans were forced upon common people. Knighthood, once an honorable profession, was forced on men who could not pay taxes. people had to pay protection. Country people were forbidden to enter London. The Puritans were persecuted by the Inquisition Court of the Star Chamber, which had the authority to "reduce a wealthy man to poverty for merely sneering at the badge of a nobleman, and to sentence a clergyman to whipping, mutilation, and perpetual imprisonment for expressing unfavorable opinion ..." These conditions lead to the English Civil War (1642-48). Those who came first to Massachusetts left England because conditions had become unendurable. The immigrants had abandoned hope for English freedom. Parents: Thomas WHITNEY Gentlemen and Mary BRAY.

He married to Elinor after May 1619 in Isleworth, Middlesex, England. (9828)(79) (9829) All of the WHITNEYs in America are descended from John who settled in Watertown, MA or another WHITNEYs who settled in CT.

He say he was born 3 July 1635 on page 21 and 15 July 1635 on page 22. Savage (475) supports the July 1635 DOB but not Pope (471). William Whitney (516) says 15 Jul 1635.

He Apprenticed John Whitney of Isleworth on 8 Mar 1624 in Isleworth, Middlesex, England.(9878) (9879) He took the oath of a freeman in 1632.(9880) He was buried on 3 Apr 1662 in St. Peter's Cornhill, London, England. (9881)(9882) In 1676, Robert's son John (bp. 10 Feb 1638/9, St. Peter's Cornhill, London). submitted a false pedigree claiming to be the heir male of the WHITNEY family of Whitney, Herefordshire. He m. before 1667, Elizabeth. This work was heavily relied upon by Henry Melville. Melville claimed that he was identical with Thomas WHITNEY, the third son of Robert WHITNEY and Elizabeth, daughter of Morgan ap Gwillims, who was in turn third son of Sir Robert WHITNEY of Whitney, Herefordshire. This theory has been discredited on chronological grounds in two articles, one by Donald Lines Jacobus and the other by Paul C. Reed. Parents: Thomas WHITNEY Gentlemen and Mary BRAY.


bullet Ruth WHITNEY was born on 15 Apr 1645 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (9883)(79) (9884)(9885) (9886)(9887) She moved after 1675 to Groton, Middlesex, MA.(9888) Probably resided with second husband Enosh and children on the property granted to her first husband John SHATTUCK. She died on 8 May 1709 in Groton, Middlesex, MA.(9889) Killed by Indians at Groton along with her first born son John. Parents: John WHITNEY and Ruth REYNOLDS.

She married to Sergeant John SHATTUCK on 20 Jun 1664 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (9890)(9891) (9892)(9893) (9894) In 1664, John inherited lands in Groton, but probably never lived there. John resided in Middle District - what today is the City of Watertown. On June 20 of the same year, John married Ruth Whitney in Watertown, who was the daughter of John Whitney (108).

John's father, William SHATTUCK, one of the first SHATTUCKs in America, died in 1672 a wealthy man. His will is outlined in the Shattuck Memorials. His entire estate was valued at over 434 £. William willed his farm to his sons Philip and William and his house to his sons Benjamin and Samuel. He willed John, however, his first born male child, only 20 £, and that was to be paid to him after his mother's death over four years by his brothers Benjamin and Samuel, who were 10 and 19 years younger than John. Doesn't this seem odd? Was John shortchanged? Was there a reason? Unfortunately, John never collected the money as he was killed in a ferry accident only three years later in 1675.

In 1853, Lemuel SHATTUCK, author of the Shattuck Memorials (108), erected the following memorial to William SHATTUCK outside Watertown on the road to Cambridge just west of Mount Auburn:
"To perpetuate the memory of WILLIAM SHATTUCK, who died in Watertown, Aug 14 1672, aged 50; the progenitor of the families that has borne his name in America. And of his son JOHN SHATTUCK, who was drowned in the Charlestown ferry Sept 14, 1675 aged 28. This simple memorial was erected by Lemuel Shattuck, who holds grateful veneration the character of the puritan father of New England." Children were: John SHATTUCK, Ruth SHATTUCK, William SHATTUCK, Samuel SHATTUCK.

She married to Enock LAWRENCE on 6 Mar 1677 in Groton, Middlesex, MA.(9895) (9896) (9897)(9898) In 1678, they moved to Groton with my ancestor Samuel (age 2 years) and Ruth's other children and probably occupied the land that had been granted to John SHATTUCK in 1664 (108). Children were: Nathaniel LAWRENCE, Daniel LAWRENCE, Zachariah LAWRENCE, Jeremiah LAWRENCE.

Again, I'll stick with the baptism date. He died on 20 Sep 1719 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (9906)(9907) Parents: John WHITNEY and Elinor.


bullet Thomas WHITNEY Gentlemen resided Lived in a locale known as Lambeth Marsh near the Surrey end of Westminster bridge. on 10 May 1583 in Westminster, Middlesex, England. (9908) He apprenticed his son John on 22 Feb 1607.(9909) He apprenticed his son Robert on 8 Nov 1624.(9910) He died on 14 Apr 1637 in Westminster, Middlesex, England. (9911)(9912) He had an estate probated on 8 May 1637.(9913) John had been appointed administer of hi father's estate, but being out of the country, he granted the duty to the only other sons still alive: Francis and Robert. The WHITNEYs who lived in Whitney Castle in Whitney, England, and several other towns in County Hereford were fabulously wealthy, but there is no proved lineage to John the Immigrant. Melville claimed that this Thomas was identical with Thomas WHITNEY, the third son of Robert WHITNEY and Elizabeth, daughter of Morgan ap Gwillims, who was in turn third son of Sir Robert WHITNEY of Whitney, Herefordshire. Pierce also supports the notion that John was a grandson of Sir Robert Whitney. This theory has been discredited on chronological grounds in two articles, one by Donald Lines Jacobus and the other by Paul C. Reed, and is well addressed by Robert Ward in his summary, "John Whitney's English Ancestry" which shows that what is known for certain is that his father was Thomas.

He married to Mary BRAY on 12 May 1583 in St. Margaret's Church, Westminster (now part of London), England.(9914) The license was obtained two days before. They were married at St. Margaret's church, where Thomas had been baptized as a child.

bullet WIFE was born in 1855.(7927) This birth year is an estimate from Arnold Hartley. he thinks Ester was about 30 when Herman was born.

She married to Joseph SCHLACHET. (7925) They were married near Zakopane. Most everything I know about Josef and Ester came from the recollections of my grandmother Sally, Arnold HARTLEY, and Uzi BEN-AMI. All of my SCHLACHET relatives believe that Josef is our common ancestor, but no one knows the year that Josef was born, married, remarried, died or how old he was when his last child was born (a topic of considerable discussion). What is certain is that after he remarried and fathered Herman and Scheidel (Jennie), he was old enough to be their grandfather.

Both grandma Sally and Arnold believe that Josef was quite old by the time he fathered Scheidel. HARTLEY believes he was at least 65, while Grandma Sally firmly claims he was about 80! This would make Josef's birth year either 1805 or 1820.

When Ester had bore Herman and Scheidel, family lore has it that Josef was quite old. When Scheidel was born, he was at least 65 (according to Arnaol), while Grandma Sally firmly claims he was about 80! This would make Josef's birth year either 1805 or 1820.

Yakoob Schlachet: was a decorated WWI veteran of the Austro-Hungarian army (lost a leg too) was shot when presenting his medals to nazis.

Kalman (Charlie) Schlachet: According to Arnold Harley, Kalman owned a store in Berlin, immigrated to America just before WWII, settled in Chicago and went by the name of Charles or Charlie Schlachet. Arnold, however, believes his father Herman, who arrived in 1902 and also settled in Chicago, was the first Schlachet in the US. According to Sally, Charlie and Thea Schlachet left Berlin and immigrated to the United States with their four-year-old son Peter. Grandma sally carried for Peter for a few weeks while his parents looked for an apartment. Peter spoke only German and did not like anything my grandmother cooked ("des schmeck nicht") until she gave him a hot dog, which he liked. Peter's son Daniel appeared in a Broadway play and movie called "swoon" about the 1924 kidnapping and murder of Nathan (babe) Leopold, jr. Which is performed to critical acclaim. I have the review on page c8 of the march 27 New York Times, which has a picture captioned, "Daniel Schlachet in "swoon."

Schlachet, Mala married Emil Ben-ami. They had either four or five sons: Mukha, Zigush, Ella, and Olec. Mukha and Zigush were killed by Nazis. Ella died as a child. Only Olec lived (3). Olec Ben-am. Uzi's father was born in Zakopane (Austria or Poland at the time?) On 1916. He married Sosshana, born on 1918, on (date) in Nowy-Targ, Poland. They had two sons: Yron and Uzi. The moved to Israel in 1935 and 1938 respectively. My parents' native languages were polish and Yiddish. They also learned in school German. Of course they learned Hebrew even before they came to (then) Palestine, and both speak fluent English (courtesy of the British mandate over Palestine, 1919-1948). Their address is Alexander (or Oek) Ben-ami, #4 Pnkas St., Ramat-gan, Israel 52285. The visited Poland from 1990 to 1992 and cleaned graves and erected a memorial on the "destroyed and defiled cemetery" in Nowy-Targ. Uzi parents visited Nowy-Targ in 1992 and Uzi says they report that the poles "were just as virulently anti-Semitic as ever, although almost no Jews live in Poland anymore." Uzi's mother visited her father's show store in Nowy-Targ. The store apparently still had a sign with her father's name on it, but it now belonged to a pole (3). Uzi Ben-ami married Judy and had two daughters: Naomi and tali (3). Uzi Ben-ami was born in Israel on he emigrated to the us on 1970. Rather than considering himself polish, German, Austrian or Hungarian, Uzi considers himself simply Jewish. If it were polish, l would hide it. Too much to be ashamed of." He spent many hours with his father obtaining an oral history of the family. He gained further information from Arnold Harley and his now deceased nephew, Kalman (Charlie) Schlachet. He has several old photos of the family, but none of josef Schlachet, from whom all of us seem to be descended. Uzi has no desire to visit Nowy-Targ, I've never been there, nor do I want to respect these perpetual anti-Semites by being polite to them. If I ever go there it would be to show presence at the concentration camps where any relatives and yours were murdered with much polish enthusiasm."

Morik's daughter Erna Schlachet married Paul Schindel and had four children. Fred Schindel, son of Erna Schlachet, "hid for ten months in a cave he dug in the ground until the Russians came." When Spielberg filmed Schindler's list, he also created a multimillion dollars non-profit organization called shoah (holocaust in Hebrew) that video tapes survivors to ensure documentation. Uzi arranged for Fred and his wife to be videotaped and has a copy of the tape. Fred moved to the United States in and now resides in Silver Spring, MD. He is age 84 and a very vigorous and with-it person. His phone number is 301-439-0443.

Uzi's relatives: An uncle on his mother's side survived Auschwitz. He was brought there when the ghetto in Nowy-Targ had its 'final-action' as they called it, 28 Aug 1942. An uncle on Uzi's mother's side went back to Nowy-Targ, shortly after the war and had to run. His mother's brothers were among the Jews forced to leave Poland in 1956, when Gomulka came to power. Now lives in France while lives in Israel. Both are in their 80s now.
Children were: Moritz SCHLACHET, Olek SCHLACHET, SCHLACHET, SCHLACHET.


bullet Judith WIGNOL? died in Oct 1664 in Ipswich, Essex, MA. (9920) This is the date that Scott cites for the death of the first Judith. Scott mentions no second wife named Judith with children born in the 1660s as does Savage. Perhaps Savage is wrong and these children belong to another wife of Reginald Jr. She died.(9921) (9922) Scott says that she died Oct 1664, but Savage says that this is the date of death for a second wife named Judith.

She married to Reginald FOSTER about 1618. (9923) I have followed the claim of Savage (473) that Reginald married two different wives named Judith and that those children born in the 1660s are attributed to this second Judith. I am not sure where I saw that Judith's surname might be WIGNOL but it is uncertain.
