  ((1)) Ive Whitbread of Cardington & London (b 1700, d 07.05.1765, 3rd son)
  The following comes from BLG1886 ('Whitbread of Loudham Park') although that identifies Ive as 4th (and only surviving) son of Henry, elder brother of Samuel, the famous brewer. That is supported by BLG1886 ('Whitbread of Southill'), which starts with Samuel "the eminent Brewer" other than to identify him as "son of Mr. Whitbread, who resided at The Barns, near Cardington, co. Bedford, and younger brother of Henry Witbread, Esq., ancestor of Whitbread of Loudham Park". However, we are following BLG1952 which appears to have been based on further research.
