I too am a Whittlesey and went to Whittlesey, England about 1990. It is a very small village and nobody in the pub where we stopped had ever met a Whittlesey before, but the "bartender" had gone to University of Oregon, my husband's alma mater (small world!), and we had a wonderful afternoon there. Yes, we are descendants of an archbishop. His body is not interred at Canterbury, but just looking for it and telling the docent I was a descendant caused him to give me a private tour of Canterbury Cathedral. My son lives in England and has information on where the archbishop is now interred.
