1.   William Conway Whittle and Elizabeth Beverly Sinclair
William was born in Norfolk, VA in 1805, but raised at his family’s Millbank Plantation in Mecklenburg County.  He died at Bent Mountain, VA at the home of
His daughter and son-in-law and was buried in Bent Mountain.

Elizabeth was probably born in Norfolk, VA in 1812 and died in Norfolk during a yellow fever epidemic in 1855. She was buried probably at Cedar Grove Cemetery, along with their son Arthur who died during the same epidemic, in Norfolk.  Elizabeth was the sister of Gilberta M. Sinclair, wife of (4) Conway Davies Whittle.

The couple was married c1834 and moved to “Woodstock”, Mecklenburg County, VA in 1840.  They sold Woodstock in 1853 and moved back to Norfolk.

Their Children:
Born in Norfolk, VA:
1.Arthur Sinclair Whittle (c1835-1855)

5.Jennie Whittle (c1844-?)
6.Beverly Whittle (c1845-?)
7.Elizabeth Whittle (c1847-?)
8.Stafford Gorman Whittle (1849-1931)

Captain William Conway Whittle was the eldest of eleven brothers and 3 sisters born to Fortescue and Mary Anne Davies Whittle.  William was born in Norfolk, VA but raised at “Millbank” in Mecklenburg County, VA.  He was commissioned into the United States Navy and served until the outbreak of the American Civil War when he resigned his commission and offered his services to the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Confederate States of America.  He was promoted to the rank of Commodore in the Confederate States Navy.

His United States Naval Service:  During the Mexican War, he was wounded at Vera Cruz while charging a parapet at the head of his men that had landed in open boats under heavy enemy fire.
At the time of Elizabeth’s death, William was in command of the USS Dale off the African coast while suppressing the slave trade.

His Confederate States Naval Service:  After resigning his commission in the US Navy, William tendered his services to the Governor of Virginia, John Letcher, who immediately sent him to Yorktown to command the river defenses there.  William later accepted the commission of Commodore in the Confederate States Navy.  He was in command at Jackson, MS; New Orleans, LA and elsewhere during his tenure.

1a.    William Conway Whittle and Ann E. Hamner
William married Ann E. Hamner, his 2nd wife c1857.  Mrs. Hamner was a widow who had 3 children by her 1st marriage.  They had no children together.  Whittle at this time had a home in Botetourt County, VA, “The Anchorage”.

The 1860 United States Census for Botetourt County shows Whittle age 56 USN Captain: Ann E Whittle age 39; Jennie Whittle age 16; Beverly Whittle age 14; Elizabeth Whittle age 12; Stafford Whittle age 10; Gilberta Whittle age 6 and ? Hamner age 11, C. G. Hamner age 8 and infant Hamner living at Whittle’s home “The Anchorage.  We believe Mrs. Hamner died shortly after this census was taken.

After the war, Whittle retired to his home the “Anchorage” in Buchanan, VA, but later moved to his daughter’s home in Bent Mountain, VA where he died and was buried.

Notes:  Bent Mountain is on US Highway 221 about 12 miles south of Roanoke, VA  “Woodstock” was probably on Buckhorn Creek in Mecklenburg County.  Exact site is unknown.

2. James Murray Whittle and Mary Coles

James was born in Norfolk in 1806 and raised at “Millbank” to adulthood.  He died in Chatham, VA in 1891 and was buried in the Chatham Burial Park.

Mary was born in Pittsylvania County, VA in 1805; she died at the birth of her only child and is buried in the Chatham Burial Park in Chatham, VA.

They were married in 1834 in Pittsylvania County.
Their Children:
    1.  Mary Whittle ( - )

2a.   James Murray Whittle and Cornelia Lotte Skipwith (a cousin)
Cornelia was the 2nd wife of James Whittle.  She was born in Mecklenburg County, VA,
Died at Chatham in 1844 and buried in the Chatham Burial Park.  She also died at the
            birth of her only child.

Their Children:
1.Matoaka Whittle (1844-1901) married William Edward Sims (1842-1891)

James Whittle was educated in law at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia and soon after moved to Pittsylvania Courthouse (now Chatham) to establish a law practice.  There he married Mary Coles and they lived at their property known as “The Columns” 
After Mary’s death, Whittle married his cousin, Cornelia, and built their home “Eldon” just west of Chatham.

Whittle became a Virginia State Senator in 1861, and was very active in a number of businesses, notably for his promotion and finance of a railroad between Lynchburg and Danville, VA which became the main line of the Norfolk and Southern Railway.  Pittsylvania Courthouse became Whittle’s Station and later Chatham.

3.   Fortescue Whittle

Fortescue, Jr. was born in Norfolk in 1807 but moved with his parents to “Millbank” by 1809.  He died at Petersburg, VA in 1861 and is buried in the Blandford Church Cemetery there.  Fortescue was never married and had no children.  Fortescue, his mother and two of his sisters moved to Petersburg shortly after his father died in 1859 to be near his brother (11) Reverend Francis Whittle.

4.   Conway Davies Whittle and Gilberta M. Sinclair

Conway was born in 1809 at Norfolk just prior to his family’s move to “Milbank”.   He was raised at “Millbank” but died in Norfolk in 1891.  His place of burial is probably Norfolk.

Gilberta was born c1824 probably in Norfolk and was the sister of Elizabeth Beverly Sinclair, wife of (1) William Conway Whittle.  She was probably buried in Norfolk.

They were married in 1845.

There were no children.

Conway Davies Whittle studied medicine under a Dr. Seldon in Norfolk and was graduated from a medical college in Philadelphia, PA (probably the University of Pennsylvania).  He practiced medicine and dentistry throughout Mecklenburg and Lunenburg Counties.

Conway and Gilberta moved to “Glenbrook” in Mecklenburg County near “Millbank”, his father’s home in c1845.  In c1859, after his father’s death, they purchased 781 acres including “Millbank” and the Whittle’s Mill property from his mother.  They moved into “Millbank” shortly thereafter.

After the Civil War the family’s slaves and servants abandoned the farm and mill leaving Conway and Gilberta to operate the property themselves.  The 1870 US Census lists Conway Davies Whittle as a miller, indicating he had probably given up his medical practice.

In about 1887, Conway and Gilberta moved to Norfolk where Conway died in 1891, leaving all of his possessions to Gilberta.  Gilberta sold all of their Mecklenburg and Lunenburg County property to Jesse Rolfe in 1892, thus ending the Whittle ownership of Whittles Mill and Milbank properties.  This property had been in the family’s possession for 96 years.

Conway and Gilberta are believed to be buried in Norfolk probably at Cedar Grove Cemetery.

Note:  The “Glenbrook” site is located approximately one mile from the intersection of VA state highways 47 and 654 at Pleasant Grove (United Methodist) Church on the north side of route 654 (Whittles Mill Road) approximately five miles north of South Hill, VA.

5. Littleton Tazewell Whittle

Littlton was born c1810 at “Millbank” and died c1812.  He is believed to be buried in the Davies-Whittle Family Cemetery at “Millbank” in Mecklenburg County, VA.

Littleton was named after Littleton Waller Tazewell, the Governor of Virginia (1834 to 1836).  Governor Tazewell was a close personal friend to Colonel William Davies and the Whittle family.

6.   John Samuel Whittle and Jane Atkinson Patterson

John Samuel Whittle was born at “Millbank” on 18 April 1826.  John studied medicine and joined the United States Navy as a surgeon.   He contacted yellow fever during an outbreak on board his ship off the South American coast and died on 5 April 1850.  He was buried at sea.

Jane was born c1826 in Lunenburg County, VA, the daughter of William A. Patterson and Anne Pleasants.  She married John on 12 December 1843 and died c1847.  Her place of burial is unknown but possibly may be in the Davies-Whittle Family Cemetery near “Millbank”.

There were no children by this marriage.

We believe that Elizabeth never married and when her mother moved to Bent Mountain to live with her son William Conway Whittle, she moved to Chatham, VA to live with her niece Mary Whittle at “Eldon”.  She may have died c1863 at Eldon and probably was buried in the Chatham Burial Park.

5 April 1876 of the Diocese of Virginia.

He received the degree DD from the Theological Seminary of Ohio in 1867 and that of LLD from William and Mary College in 1873.

12,   Mary Anne Whittle

Mary Anne was born at “Millbank” in October 1826 and died in 1862.  She is buried in Blandford Church Cemetery, Petersburg, VA

Mary Anne was apparently never married, but lived with her family at “Millbank” until her father died in 1859 when she moved with her mother, sister and brother to Petersburg, VA

13.   Jane Eliza Whittle

Jane was born at “Millbank” in c1828.  Family records indicate that she died in 1840 at age 12, but we have a conflict as to where she was at the time of death.  One story is that she was in Hopkinsville (?) attending school with relatives, the Misses Murray.  We believe she died at “Millbank” and was buried in the Davies-Whittle Family Cemetery.

14.   Powhatan Bolling Whittle

Powhatan was the last child of Fortescue and Mary Anne Davies Whittle.  He was born at “Millbank” on 26 June 1829 and died in 1905.  He was buried in the Davies-Whittle Family Cemetery at “Millbank”.  Powhatan was never married and had no children of his own.

Whittle was graduated in law at the University of Virginia and entered into the law practice with his brother Lewis Neal Whittle in Macon, GA.

At the outbreak of the Civil War, Powhatan joined Georgia’s Jackson Artillery as First Lieutenant.  However, when his home state of Virginia seceded from the Union and joined the Confederacy, Whittle resigned his commission and joined the Macon Volunteers who were already in route to Virginia.

At about the time that Whittle arrived in Virginia, Virginia’s Governor John Letcher offered him the rank of Lieutenant Colonel with instructions to recruit men for the newly forming 38th Virginia Infantry Regiment.  Whittle, Colonel Edward C, Edmonds and Major Issac H. Carrington recruited enough men to make up the requirements for the 38th Regiment which included two companies of Mecklenburg County men.

Whittle was wounded five times during the ensuing war, including the loss of his left arm.  He assumed command of the regiment at Gettysburg when Col. Edmonds fell.  He led his men during the famous Pickett’s Charge, further into enemy territory than any other participating confederate unit.

After Gettysburg and because of the three wounds he received there, Whittle was relieved of combat duty and reassigned to General A. P. Hill’s Third Corp as Judge of the Military Court.

After the war, Whittle returned to Macon and resumed his law practice there.  Whittle served several terms in the Georgia Legislature and was Judge of the Macon Corporation Court.

Whittle grandchildren who made their own notable history…

1-3Lt. William Conway Whittle, Jr.,  USN and CSN

William Conway Whittle, Jr. was the son of (1) William Conway Whittle and Elizabeth Beverly Sinclair Whittle.  He was born in Norfolk in 1840, but soon moved with his family to “Woodstock” in Mecklenburg County, VA where he lived until about 1853.  Then he and his family moved back to Norfolk,

Whittle went into the United States Navy in 1857 at age 17, but resigned and joined the Confederate States Navy when Virginia seceded from the Union.  Whittle accepted a Lieutenants rank in the CSN.  During the Civil War Whittle was assigned to a secret mission.  He was sent to England to purchase a merchant ship suitable for adaptation to a war vessel.  He was to hire English sailors to sail this ship to an island off the coast where it was to be outfitted as a war ship and manned with Confederate sailors.

The “Sea King” was an English Merchant Ship purchased by Whittle and commissioned “Shenandoah” on 9 October 1864 under the command of Lt. James I. Waddell with Whittle as Executive Officer.  The “Shenandoah” had the unique assignment to seek and destroy the United States Whaling Fleet operating in the north Pacific and Arctic Oceans.

Sailing around the tip of Africa the Shenandoah arrived in the North Pacific Ocean in March 1865.  The officers of the Shenandoah gave no credence to occasional news of the fall of the Confederate government and sailed on to carry out their orders.  During one six day period in June 1865 the Shenandoah captured 24 ships of the Union whaling fleet north of the Aleutian Islands in the Bering Sea and Arctic Ocean.  They burned 20 of these ships and bonded four ships to take the captured American seamen to Brazil.  The Shenandoah then proceeded southward to intercept American merchant ships bounded for Japan.  In August 1865, they received valid information that the Confederacy had fallen some five months before from a British merchant ship.  The Shenandoah was now considered a pirate ship, its officers and crew as pirates and were being sought by US Naval Forces.

The Shenandoah’s crew then dismantled the man of war and painted her to appear to be a merchant ship.  The officers decided to sail to Liverpool, England and surrender to British authorities.  The ship’s voyage ended on 6 November 1865.

The Shenandoah had remained at sea for 12 months and 17 days, travelled 58,000 miles and sunk or captured 38 enemy ships with close to a thousand enemy prisoners and without a single casualty among its own crew.  By the time this ship was turned over to England, 715 Confederate war and merchant ships had been transferred to England to escape capture or bankruptcy which allowed England to dominate world shipping until World War I.  It would be years before the officers and crew would be pardoned by the United States Government and allowed to return home.

The Shenandoah had sailed around the world, fired the last shot of the Civil War and was the last Confederate entity to surrender its colors.

Whittle, Jr. was also the grandson of Commodore Arthur Sinclair of the United States Navy, the great grandson of General Richard Kennon of the United States Army, who became the military governor of the Louisiana Territory, and the great grandson of Colonel William Davies of the Continental Army of the United Colonies. 

1-8Judge Stafford Gorman Whittle

Stafford Gorman Whittle was also the son of (1) William Conway Whittle and Elizabeth Beverly Sinclair Whittle, born 5 December 1849 at “Woodstock”, Mecklenburg County, VA.   He was educated in the schools of Mecklenburg County and Norfolk city and briefly attended Chatham Military Institute (now Hargrave Military Academy) in Pittsylvania County, VA.  Judge Whittle attended Washington College (now Washington and Lee University) in Lexington, VA during the time that General Robert E. Lee was president of the school, where he was graduated in law in 1871.

Whittle established a law practice in Martinsville, VA and married Ruth Staples Drewry, a local girl on 4 November 1880.  In law practice for ten years, Whittle was appointed to fill an unexpired term as Judge on the Fourth Judicial Court.  He was nominated to succeed himself in 1882 but was defeated.  However in 1888 he was elected for an 8 year term. 

Declining an invitation to become the Dean of the Washington and Lee University School of Law, Judge Whittle was elected to the Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia in 1901, a position he held until his retirement on 29 December 1919.

Judge Whittle died 11 September 1931 and was buried in Martinsville, VA.

Note: Ruth Staples Drewry Whittle was the author of the “Whittle Family Information” which was compiled around 1920 (she died in 1923).

… and notable great grandchildren who did the same

Judge Kennon Cattiness Whittle

Kennon C. Whittle was the son of Stafford Gorman Whittle and Ruth Staples Drewry Whittle, born 12 October 1891 in Martinsville, VA.

Judge Whittle practiced law with his brother, Stafford Gorman Whittle, Jr. until 1942 when Stafford died.  He continued his practice alone until he was elected to the Seventh Judicial Circuit Court on 14 December 1944.  During his tenure on the Seventh, he presided over many controversial cases, some attracting national and international attention.  Many of his decisions in these cases were appealed to the Virginia Court of Appeals and some even to the Supreme Court of The United States.  Not one verdict was ever reversed by the higher courts.

He was appointed Associate Justice of Appeals on 15 March 1951, exactly 50 years from the date his father was appointed to the same bench.  Judge Whittle served the Virginia Supreme Court until he resigned due to illness in 1961.  His death occurred on 10 November 1967 and he was buried in Martinsville, VA.
