    • Notes: 
    • John Brooks Threlfall, on page 27 of his book The Ancestry of Reverend Henry Whitfield and His Wife Dorothy Sheafe, gives the death date of Rev. Henry Whitfield as 17 DEC 1657. This date conflicts with the SEP 1657 death date and the 17 SEP 1657 burial date given earlier in the book. It seems more likely that the DEC month is in error versus SEP which is given twice.
