I’m looking into the Whitaker family, any of the last homes they resided in near or around Old Guilford, Prospect just after the war or to communicate with any of their family. Now living closer to Nsw I am taking a greater interest in the remaining family stories and earlier residence.
I understand the earliest resident Henry Whitaker a notable Druggist of George St Parramatta married into the Raine family who came out possibly visiting family in the 1830s and having a land interest in an estate in early Paramatta NSW.
