After graduation from Northampton High School he attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, where he learned to make fine jewelry. He gained the skills of both a silversmith and a goldsmith. For a few years he taught metal arts at McKinley High School in Washington, D.C. There he met an English teacher and they were married in 1913 in Worcester, Mass. They had four children.
In 1917 Harry was employed at Tiffany on 5th Avenue in New York, where he worked for 16 years. He worked in a shop on the 6th floor of the store where he made and repaired one-of-a-kind pieces of fine jewelry. During the great depression Tiffany was forced to downsize the staff and Harry was among those to become unemployed.
Harry always had a well-equipped shop in his home and continued to make and repair fine jewelry. He fashioned toys for his children and carved elaborate block prints. He made beautiful wooden trays with Chinese tapestries under glass.
In 1936, Harry and his wife moved to Northampton, where they lived for the rest of their lives. Carolyn S. Whitbeck, http://www.925-1000.com/M_whitbeck.html.3

Rev. Edward Whitby

M
     Rev. Edward Whitby was the son of Rev. Thomas Whitby and Mabella Turton.

Capt. Henry Whitby

M, b. 21 July 1781, d. 5 May 1812
     Capt. Henry Whitby was born on 21 July 1781 in Cresswell Hall, Staffordshire. He was the son of Rev. Thomas Whitby and Mabella Turton. Capt. Henry Whitby died on 5 May 1812 in Rochester ?, Kent, at the age of 30 s.p. He was buried on 11 May 1812 in St. Margaret's Church Yard, Rochester.

He was related to the late Earl St. Vincent. He went to sea towards the close of the year 1794, or early in 1795, as midshipman on board the Excellent, the Hon. Rear-Adm. Cornwallis, whose flag captain, though a very young man, was his brother, Capt. John Whitby. While a youngster in the admiral's ship, he so conducted himself, as to gain the approbation and favour of that officer. At the time of his celebrated retreat on June 17, 1795, young Whitby was confined to his hammock with the measles; but no sooner did he learn that some sharp fighting was expected, than he jumped up, and declared that whatever might be the consequence, he would stand by his gun, and share the dangers and credit of the day, from which he was prevented by positive orders. On June 4, 1799 he was made lieutenant; and on August 1, he was as much concerned in the ever memorable engagement off Aboukir, as any person in a frigate could well be. In 1801, he was appointed to the Leviathan, Rear-Adm. Duckworth, then commanding on the Jamaica station, by whom he was made commander and post captain of the Proselyte frigate. That ship being lost on a reef of sunken rocks, and becoming known to the Admiralty, previously to their confirmation of his rank as post captain, he was put back again into the Leviathan as lieutenant. At length he was made commander, and appointed to the Pelican, in which ship, unaided, he carried on the blockade of Aux Cayes with such unremitting diligence and activity, as to reduce the inhabitants to a state of famine, and to terms of almost unconditional surrender. On February 6, he was made post. In 1805 we find him at Halifax, in North America, commanding the Leander of 50 guns. In April 1806, being off Sandy Hook, as senior officer of a squadron, consisting of the Leander, Cambrian, and Driver sloop of war, with instructions to examine all vessels, a man on board one of the American coasters was said to be killed by a shot from the Leander, as about that time the squadron were firing, to bring-to some homeward-bound American merchantmen, which, fearing the result of a search, obstinately persisted in their course. An uproar of the most violent kind ensued in America; they demanded Capt. Whitby from our government, to try him by their own laws: it was finally resolved that he should be tried by a court-martial, for the wilful murder of this man, John Pierce, for a violation of the rights of a neutral state, in amity with Great Britain. Accordingly on April 16, 1807, he was tried at Portsmouth and acquitted. The president, Adm. Montague, returned him his sword, with his full assurance, " that it had never been stained in his hands." To sooth the Americans, however, he was refused employment. In November 1808, Capt. Whitby obtained intelligence, from a most authentic source, that the man, John Pierce, for whose murder he had been tried, and though acquitted, had been kept unemployed, had not been killed by a shot from the Leander, or from any one of the squadron then acting under his orders. He communicated this intelligence to the first lord of the Admiralty, and, through the secretary of state, to the American minister, resident in London. By him it was admitted, that no objection any longer existed to the ci-devant captain of the Leander being brought into active service against the enemies of his country. In February 1809, he, therefore, received a commission for the Cerberus, of 32 guns; and in this ship, in company with Capt. Hoste of the Amphion, he put the seal to his naval fame in the action off the island of Lissa. On his arrival in England, he was presented by the first lord of the Admiralty with a gold medal and riband, and promised the Briton, a new frigate, shortly to be launched. In April 1812, he attended the launch at Chatham, and commissioned her a few days after. Scarcely had he performed this business, which he regarded as leading to an accession of glory, when he was arrested by a painful disease, to which he had been long occasionally subject; and on May 5 he died, in the thirty-first year of his age. Norrie, J.W., The Naval Gazetteer, 1827.

Capt. John Whitby RN1

M, b. 7 October 1774, d. 7 April 1806
     He was a Flag Captain to Admiral Cornwallis.1 Capt. John Whitby RN was born on 7 October 1774 in Stafford.2 He was christened on 7 October 1774 at St. Mary's, Stafford.2 He was the son of Rev. Thomas Whitby and Mabella Turton. Capt. John Whitby RN married Mary Anne Theresa Symonds, daughter of Capt. Thomas Symonds RN and Elizabeth Malet, on 13 October 1802. Capt. John Whitby RN died on 7 April 1806 in Newlands, Milford, Hampshire, at the age of 31.3 He was buried on 12 April 1806 in Pennington, Hampshire,
At Newlands, near Lymington, in the prime of life, Capt. Whitby of the Royal Navy, who lately resigned the command of his Majesty's ship Gibraltar through ill health. He was a very excellent officer, and an intimate companion of the brave Admiral Cornwallis, at whose seat he died. Captain Whitby was the eldest son of the Rev. Thomas Whitby, of Cresswell-hall, near Stafford. He was admitted into the Rovai Nary at the age of 12 years: from which period, a short interval only excepted he was continually engaged for twenty years in the active duties of his profession, till about the 20th of March last, when indisposition, from unrwearied and unremitted attention, compelled him to solicit, from the Lords of the Admiralty, a short leave of absence fiom the Gibraltar of 80 guns; to which ship, from the Ville de Paris, he had been recently appointed. This indisposition, which at first excited no serious apprehension, assumed, after the lapse of some days, a more formidable aspect; and so rapid and overwhelming was its progress, that notwithstanding every effort of medical skill, it soon subdued a very useful and valuable life. So true it is "that in the midst of life we are in death."
Into the Minerva frigate, then bearing the flag of the Hon. Admiral Cornwallis, his patron and friend. Captain Whitby was made Post, in 1793. Of his professional skill, zeal for the naval service, and constant attention to even the most minute parts of his duty, there is very ample testimony from those who, from situation, are the most competent judges. His loyally to his Sovereign, and fhis attachment to his Country and its dearest interests were ardent and sincere. The powers of the mind, which he was cultivating with assiduous care, were such, that few subjects to which he applied his attention readily, could elude their grasp. To speculate upon the product of such powers, thus cultivating, is now, alas ! as useless as it is vain: equally useless too it is to lament the loss of one naval character, however considerable, when every British naval officer, and every seaman, is a Hero. The family, however, and relations, friends, and acquaintances, of such a young man, may be allowed to mourn and lament their loss ; though at the awful dispensation of Providence they dare not, because they are forbidden to murmur.
