The Whitley family has been traced back to 1327 in England. The Whitley family appears to be centered around the Yorkshire and Leicestershire area of England. Sir John Wheatley lived at Castle Bromwich, Leicestershire in 1356, being born about 1327. His parents and wife are unknown. The Wheatley family are most likely of Anglo-Saxon or Danish Viking descendant which are clans of the pre-historic Germanic people that occupied Northern Germany and Denmark, Sweden, and Norway that invaded and migrated to England from 400 AD to 1050 AD; however, to a lesser extend the pre-historic Celt people also occupied minor parts of England, Wales, Ireland, Isle of Man, and Scotland during the same period in history. Whitley is found spelled several different ways when you trace the name and their genealogy; Whitely, Wheatleigh, Wheatley, Whiteley, Whitelay, Whitley and several others. The date that the Wheatley/Whitleys' came to America is not known but was most likely between 1675 and 1684 to Virginia. The Martin County, N.C. Whitley family can be traced back to 1530 in Tingsboro, Somerset shire, England as listed below. There connections between the 6th Benjamin Wheatley and the 7th Samuel Wheatley I generations are based on time period, locations, dates of birth, and names. The connection between the 11th Jesse Whitley Sr. and 12th Jesse Whitley Jr. are also based on time period, locations, dates of birth, and name. However; I feel that both connections have enough substance to make the connections at this time (could be wrong but doubtful).
