WHITTEN IN IRELAND & AUSTRALIA
WHITTEN - Whitten is sometimes been spelt incorrectly as Whitton/Witten/Witon. The line I have been researching starts with George Whitten who was born in 1833 in Ireland. George married Francis Sarah Ewing (Ewins/Ewings), and they had seven children. George and Francis emigrated to Australia with the first 5 of their children between 1850 & 1855. The family settled in the Ballarat area.
The children were: Jane Whitten (1841 1921), Mary Witten (1843 1905), Alicia Whitten (1846 1917), Elizabeth Ann Whitten (1848 1931), William John Whitten (1850 1918), Sarah Whitton (1855 1856), & George Whitten (1858 1901).
