re: Boleyn WHITNEY was nephew of Mrs. Robert Adair (nee Forster) of co. Longford, houses in Dublin City, and of "Hollybrook" co. Wicklow, Ireland, mentioned in Mrs. Adair's will of 1747.

Lyon’s ‘Grand Juries of Westmeath’ :
Boleyn Whitney, third son of Colonel Whitney, adopted the law as his profession, and attained a seat on the Bench.
He came on the Lent 1754 (?) circuit in Co. Westmeath, Ireland.
He drew up and was a trustee of the will of Andrew Wilson of Piercefield made in 1724 who left his estates to support the establishment of Wilson Hospital (and school ?).

Rev Ambrose Upton, 1688-1752, m. Anna Whitney, a dau of Boleyn Whitney of New Pass, Co Westmeath, on the Co Longford border, which may be the New Pass mentioned in the Wilson lease of 1754 to Henry Upton, the brother of Ambrose Upton.

Whitney’s brother was probably George Boleyn Whitney of New Pass.
The latter’s dau, Elizabeth Whitney, mc.1780, Sir Thomas Fetherston, 2nd Bart,
and the Fetherstonhaugh-Whitney family were living at New Pass until the first
Great War.

( Fe(a)therston(e)haugh is noted to be the longest surname ? )
