I cannot find any Birth record or Baptism PR for Joseph Whittington born abt 1831, but this looks like him with his parents;

1851 Census, ???, Westbury on Severn District, Glos.
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Thomas Whitington Head M 58 Collier. Lydrook, Gloucestershire
Ann Whitington Wife F 57 Macon, Carmarthenshire
Richard Whitington Son M 22 Collier. St Briavels, Gloucestershire
Joseph Whitington Son M 20 Collier. St Briavels, Gloucestershire
Harriet Whitington Daughter F 18 St Briavels, Gloucestershire
Thomas Whitington Son M 15 Collier. St Briavels, Gloucestershire

1841 Census, White Hall House, English Bicknor, Glos.
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Thomas Whittington M 45-49 Gloucestershire
Anne Whittington F 45-49
Richard Whittington M 15-19 Gloucestershire
Joseph Whittington M 12 Gloucestershire
Harriet Whittington F 8 Gloucestershire
Thomas Whittington M 6 Gloucestershire

These old threads discuss this same family.

However I'm unsure as to any connections between these Whittingtons of Lydbrook area, and Dick Whittington's own family in Pauntley nr Newent 300 years earlier.

And here's another thread about THE Dick Whittington which is hopefully relevant. The last post reminds me of my own childhood confusion regarding a Mayor Whittington my dad knew, and the pantomime character all us kids knew, this was long before I learnt that Dick was a real chap AND a Glostershire lad to boot !
