John Whitely1,2

M, b. say 1690, d. between 16 June 1753 and 22 April 1754
ChartsRoger C. Wood Pedigree Chart
     John Whitely was He was a clothier. John Whitely, Clothier

Very little can be found about John Whitely, clothier, of Dartmouth, Bristol County, Massachusetts, who died there between 13 Jun 1753 and 22 April 1754, the dates of his will and inventory of his estate. The value of that estate was 525 English Pounds which, in today’s dollars would be worth about $109, 500. He was obviously a man of some substance.

I have been unable to find any records of John, save his will and his marriage to his second wife Abigail Allen, probably the widow of Ebenezer Allen of Dartmouth. (Abigail was not the daughter of Zebulon Allen of Salem, MA, as many sources have wrongly claimed.)

John’s will lists the following children with no real clue as to when they were born: Robert, William, Jean, d. before 1753, wife of Joseph Armstrong, Edy (Edith?),d. before 1753, wife of Joseph Merrihew, Anne, 2nd wife of Seth Allen, son of Ebenezer, an unnamed daughter who d. before 1753, wige of James Marcherd. He also names several grandchildren and one granchild Elizabeth, wife of John Cradock, whom I have not been able to place. I assume that John listed his children in the order of their births, but that is not certain.

The nearly complete lack of records on this side of the Atlantic suggested to me that he might have come from England in the early 1700s. His will states that he was a clothier, which, in the 18th century, meant a buyer and/or manufacturer of cloth. Several LDS unsourced entries claim that John came from the West Riding area of Yorkshire, England, which indeed was an area of substantial wool cloth manufacturing, especially in the area around Leeds.

A search of birth and christening records for John Whitely in West Yorkshire turned up some interesting possibilities. There was a christening record for a John Whitely, christened 2 Apr, 1686 at Bingley, Yorkshire. He may have been the John Whitely listed in the IGI as having married at nearby Leeds, York; 1 Feb 1716/17 Sarah Shaffton. This couple had Anne, born 26 Aug 1718 and christened 23 Sep 1718 at St. Peter, Leeds. The IGI also lists a William, b. to John and Sarah, 16 Mar 1724 at Leeds.

Unfortunately, no other records of children with the names listed in John’s will could be found. The Edy or Edith listed as the wife of Joseph Merrihew in John’s will was married at Dartmouth, MA, 12 Oct 1734, which means she was probably born at least by 1716, so it is unlikely that she was the dau. Of the John of Bingley/Leeds.

Sadly, only speculation can link any of the John Whitelys of Yorkshire to the John Whitely of Dartmouth, MA. John was born say 1690. He might have been born in Yorkshire, England and could have come to America after his marriage to an unknown woman.

Some or all of his children might also have been born in England since there don't seem to be any birth records for them in New England..3 He married (?) unknown say 1700. John Whitely was marriage intent on 23 April 1728 at New Bedford, Bristol, Massachusetts.4 He married Abigail unknown on 4 July 1728 at Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts.5,6 John Whitely left a will on 16 June 1753 at Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts.2 He died between 16 June 1753 and 22 April 1754 at Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts.2 His estate was probated on 22 April 1754 at Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts.

     Seth was born at Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts, on 28 July 1703.1,2 He married Elizabeth Butler on 11 January 1725/26 at Sandwich, Barnstable, Massachusetts.3,4 Seth Allen was marriage intent on 4 October 1741 at New Bedford, Bristol, Massachusetts.5 He married Anne Whitely after 4 October 1741 at perhaps, Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts, The place of this marriage is uncertain. Several undocumented LDS online pedigrees claim it took place at Charlotte, Duchess County, NY, where the couple later lived, but the fact that Seth's daughter Abigail by his first wife married in 1744 at Dartmouth, suggests to me that he married his second wife in Dartmouth.

The couple also filed their intent to marry inNew Bedford, Bristol County, MA, which is very close to Dartmouth.6,5 Seth Allen died before 10 December 1755 at probably, Charlotte, Dutchess, New York. There is an odd entry for Seth Allen in the Allen Families [Settlers of the Beekman Patent, Volume 2] that states that Seth probably married a Russell based on a "Bristol County Mass., Probate record (125:64-6) that contains a guardianship order to Daniel Russell of Dartmouth, clothier, [probably brother to Seth's supposed Russell wife] on the children of Seth Allen, Henry, Elizabeth and Lydia, all under 14, living in Dutchess County, NY, dated 10 Dec, 1755." I suspect that, because three of Seth's siblings were then living near him in Dutchess County, NY, the guardianship order was not carried out and the children remained in New York.

Who this Daniel Russell was is a mystery, because there are no records that I can find that Seth ever married a Russell.

The Beekman Patent entry for the guardianship also references NEHGR 58:368, apparently pointing to Daniel Russell as a descendant of John Russell. The Daniel Russell listed here could not be the Daniel Russell granted guardianship to the three Allen children because he wasn't born until after 1751 when his parents were married. He was their second child and would have been born at the very earliest say 1753.

There is also an attachment to the will papers of John Whitely the following: "To the Hon'ble George Leonard, Esq. Judge of the Probate of Wills [?] for the County of Bristol. Daniel Russell Guardian to three children heirs to the estate of John Whitely Late of Dartmouth [... ? ] That James Mehard administrator [the rest is not decipherable].

Elizabeth Butler1

F, b. 5 May 1707, d. before 4 October 1741
     Elizabeth was born at Sandwich, Barnstable, Massachusetts, on 5 May 1707.2 As of 11 January 1725/26,her married name was Allen.1 She married Seth Allen on 11 January 1725/26 at Sandwich, Barnstable, Massachusetts.1,3 Elizabeth Butler died before 4 October 1741 at Dartmouth, Bristol, Massachusetts. There doesn't appear to be a death record for Elizabeth, nor is there a place of death. I have assumed that she died in Dartmouth, primarily because at least one of Seth's children by her married at Dartmouth in 1744.4
