The England Project is co-manager of this profile in order to verify the biography as presented and to investigate a possible conflation with a man named Whitbread/Whitebread. Fitz-Henry-9 23:33, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
John Whitbred (Sometimes Whytbred) was Born in Stapleford Tawney. He married Dorothy and they had a son, Thomas Whitbred who moved to White Notley around 30 Miles away.
The original profile was based on this character from the visitations of Essex but improbably stretched to the Battle of Stirling Bridge where a poet called Blind Harry, 200 years after the event, recounted the heroics of a certain John the Wright. This John Whitbred stays firmly in Essex a few centuries after the battle of Stirling. Previous notes, relating to general Wright background, were archived.
