Whitbread, Esq., son of tlie late William Whitbread, Esq.

liineagre. — The Whitdreads are said by family tradition,
as appears by an inscription on the monument of Samuel
Whitbread, Esq., in Cardington church, 179S, to have been of
great antiquity in the co. of Bedford; but their name docs
not occur in the list of gentry of the reign of Henry VI., nor
is there any pedigree of the family in the Herald's Visitation.
It is certain, nevertheless, that Ion House, in Gravenhurst,
which, in the inscription above alluded to, is said " to have
been the ancient seat of the family, was sold by William
AVhitebread, Gent., in 1630, as appears by the title deeds of
the present possessor." Such is the reference to the House
of Whitbread to be found in Lyson's Magna Britannia. Its
