Our family tree has the story of William Whitbread (of the Whitbread Brewery family) who eloped to London c1805 to marry Eliza, his sweetheart who was of humble stock and looked down on by the family. Apparently his brother Henry Whitbread took pity on them and bought them a house in Shoreditch.
I am descended from William's daughter Eliza who married William John Mackglew.
I am curious to know/confirm how William is related to the Whitbread family.
