I have extensively researched the Whitfield family in Australia which began with the transportation of Jacob Whitfield in 1822. His Mother's ancestry in Ireland whilst listed as Susanna Pearson born 1734, married John Whitfield 27 October 1758, no official documentation of the birth or marriage of Susanna has been sighted. John's parents are listed as John Whitfield born 1695 and Sarah Pearson born 16 January 1701 married 4 March 1723 also unsubstantiated. If any researchers would like a copy of my Whifield research, please make contact.
