Recent research has suggested that the last name Whittley has been around for nearly nine hundred years. During the time of the British Empire the name spread with the colonies to areas of America, Asia, India and Australia.
In the UK alone there are 79911 people with the surname Whittley. The recently published nineteen eleven census carried out by H.M. Treasury for the United Kingdom shows the highest number of Whittley's in the county of Cambridgeshire. If history is to be believed the early 19th century Whittley's liked a drink or eight. A tarnished past is clear, particularly around the year 1851 when Paul Whittley stole a vase and was sentenced to jail. 97
