  • Notes 
    • A descendant of Pilgrim William White. He apparently had a first wife by whom he had John (MD 30:142). Based on age of death, son John was born ca. 1689. The 17 Mar. 1691 inventory of Martha's grandmother Hannah Richard mentions "items given to Martha Doty". This indicates that Martha was still single on that date, implying that John White had an earlier wife. There is a significant gap between the birth of John and the births of most of the other children. On 9 Jan. 1700, John White of Rochester, yeoman, sold land to Isaac Holmes. On 7 July 1702 (or 1712) John and his wife acknowledged the deed, recorded 6 Feb. 1713 (PlyCoLR 10:518). On 10 April 1719, an indenture was made between John White of Rochester, yeoman, and wife Martha to sell 48 acres to Benjamin Lynde, John Turner Esq., Daniel Rogers, Henry Loranby, and Major Walter Price (PlyCoLR 13:206). On 10 Sep. 1725, John White Sr. of Rochester, yeoman, gave for love to "my son John White Jr., husbandman", a tract of land (PlyCoLR 19:125). The will of John White of Rochester dated 29 Jun 1748, proved 9 Nov 1748, names wife Martha; son Silvenus; dau. Mary; sons Thomas and Justus; daus. Elizabeth and Deborah; grandson Nathaniel, son of dau. Jedidah. (Rochester VR 444, MF1:111-2) - (White)
