WHITTOM

        Here follows a list of the descendants of John WHITTOM. A lot of them were born in Paspebiac. Some of them moved to United States and others went in big cities.

        Our ancestor was John WHITTOM Sr. His wife was Elizabeth (?) born c. 1768 in Jersey and died in 1835 in Paspebiac. Her son John Jr was present when she was buried. She was widow.

        John Jr. was born in 1789. He was farmer and carpenter. He married Ann Holmes. He was buried on Nov. 26th 1866,at the St. Andrews Anglican Church of New-Carlisle. He was 77. Ann Holmes was daughter of Clement and Ann Batson

        We don't have the link between John Senior and his father. There is a story that tells the father of John Sr would be Philip WHEATON. He was captain on the "OTTER", a boat from the Charles Robin Company. An American pirate, Samuel Hobbs took possession of the "OTTER", in front of Paspebiac with his shooner "Congress" on september 27th, 1778 during the American War.

        The WHITTOMs have always been called "Capitaines". Would it be because of Philip???
