[The foregoing a'ostracts of wills of the Whitfield family I have kept by me
many years in the hopes of gathering a lot of notes ou the Manning family of
Kent to accompany them, for, as will be seen above, Mr. Thomas Whitfield the
father of our Henry Whitfield and the grandfather of Mrs. Sarah, wife of the
Rev. John Higginson, and probably also of Mrs. Dorothy, wife of Samuel Dis-
browe of Guilford, Connecticut, afterwards keeper of the Great Seal of Scot-
land, married into this family of Maiming, thus endowing very many of our
present New England families with a very interesting line of ancestry. Having
now collected and set in some order most of these Manning notes I have thus
redeemed the promise made some years ago in my Gleanings (ante, page 253).

A printed pedigree of the family of Whitfield may be found in Clutterbuck's
History of Hertfordshire (Vol. I., p. 189). Another I have noted as being in
Berry's County Genealogies (Sussex, page 15). In Harleiau MS. 1432 (240 iu
pencil) I found the following pedigree (with a reference to Hollinshed folio
873—20].
