Following on Gerry's reply......the Castlemartin Hundred Pemb. marriages pre
1813 show John Whitta 1805 at Warren. Unfortunately this index does not
show the bride's name and one would have to plough through every record to
find a match to "1805 at Warren"....and, if you settled on the first one you
found, you could be wrong. However, I'm sure if you think there may be a
connection to John Whitta you could ask Haverfordwest Records Office for a
copy of the parish register entry.
Likewise for Anne Whitta 1768; Caroline Whitta 1804; Jane Whitta 1797; Mary
Whitta 1772 (all married at Pembroke St. Mary)...parish register entry
needed to find out who they married.
In the Narberth Hundred:
Solomon Whitta m. Elizabeth Bowen at Carew in 1770
William Whitta m. Elizabeth Davies? at Lawrenny in 1781
William Whitta m. Martha Williams at Carew in 1793
Hugh Whittow m. Martha George (from BT's) at Martletwy
Ann Whitta m. Owen Griffiths at Redberth in 1812.
The Whittoes mentioned in Dungleddy Hundred are:
John Whittoe 1737 m. Elizabeth Hake at Llawhaden
and Dorothy Whittoe 1703 m. David Rees at Prendergast.
With Sue's information, you now have plenty of avenues to follow.

Subject: Re: [Dyfed] WHITTA Name
In the 1851 census there is one family with that name in Tenby and the
father in the family was born in Redberth where his parents appear to be
still living at the time. One WHITTOW in Pembroke Dock
7 burials of WHITTAs in the Castlemartin Hundred between 1813 and 1837, in
the Pembroke (2), Monkton (3) and Warren (2) areas, and 6 in Narberth
Hundred in the Tenby (2), Jeffreyston (2) and Redberth (2) areas. There
i WHITTA burial in Clarbeston
The variant WHITTOW occurred in Talbenny (7 burials), Hasguard (2) and
Perhaps Annie's mother or one of her grandparents was a WHITTA.
No WHITTAs in the West Wales telephone book, but there are 3 WHITTOWs.
