Hugh Whitehead (also spelt as Whithead; 1513 – ????) was the 12th great-grandmother of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s distant maternal ancestors in the Prescott family line. Born in Kirkham, Lancashire, Hugh was married to Margaret Clarke with whom he raised at least one child also named Margaret born in 1544.
In Cometanic ancestry, Hugh is classified as part of the 14th generation retrograde, thus categorising her as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
