Help Request :-- family being researched: WHITECHESTER
Information on Whitechester surname linked to Scotland and Lithuania
I have found information about the Whitechester name in Scotland connected to the Scott clan and the name Buccleigh. In a Pennsylvania death record in 1935 for Anthony Whitechester, my grandfather, his father, Thomas Whitechester, is listed as an immigrant from Lithuania. Thomas and Agnes Whitechester's four children were born in Pennsylvania in the USA according to their marriage licenses. There is a reference in Wikipedia to some land in Lithuania owned by the Buccleighs that they lost when Russia took over Lithuania. Does anyone have any information about the Whitechester name in Scotland or Lithuania? I haven't been able to find information prior to 1920 on Ancestry and Google about that last name. Thank you.
