Notes for WILLIAM WHITAKER: William Whitaker was born in England in 1701. In about 1716-1717, the family moved to Timahoe, Ireland. They stayed there only a short time and then moved to Dublin.

The Society minutes state, "William Whitaker, formerly of Timahoe, now of Dublin".

Exactly when William Whitaker came to America is not precisely known, but he was received at Kennett Monthly Meeting (then Newark Monthly Meeting), Kennett Square, Chester County, Pennsylvania on December 2, 1721. He was received on his certificate of removal from the Dublin Monthly Meeting.

Shortly after arriving in America, William met Elizabeth Carleton. She was born in Ireland and came to America when she was about ten years of age. On January 5, 1722 they made their first announcement of their intention to marry at Kennett Monthly Meeting.
