& ALL OTHER variations
The surname Whittaker has many variations. We have used the double 't' here because that is how our name is spelt now. In most of the earlier documents our ancestors were recorded as Whitaker, with the single 't', and occasionally as Whitacre.
Most of our research has been in and around Nottingham, England. That is where we live, and where there has been a branch of our family for over two hundred years. There has been at least one Whit(t)aker line in Nottinghamshire for much longer than that, but we have yet to find if we have a connection to them.
Some family members have probably traveled to other parts of the world. Perhaps they join your family tree at some stage? If you do find a link, please let us know
