  • Notes 
    • William White emigrated from Leiden, Holland in 1620 aboard the Mayflower to Plymouth, Massachusetts.

      "In the 1623 Plymouth division of land William White received five acres as a passenger on the Mayflower (even though he had been dead for two years) [PCR 12:4]. In the 1627 Plymouth division of cattle Resolved White and Peregrine White were the tenth and eleventh persons in the third company [PCR 12:10]."

      "In his list of those who came in the Mayflower Bradford included 'Mr. William White and Susanna his wife and one son called Resolved, and one born a-shipboard called Peregrine, and two servants named William Holbeck and Edward Thompson' [Bradford 442]. In his accounting of 1651 Bradford tells us that 'Mr. White and his two servants died soon after their landing. His wife married with Mr. Winslow, as is before noted. His two sons are married and Resolved hath five children, Peregrine two, all living. So their increase are seven' [Bradford 445].

      "Susanna (_____) (White) Winslow was not, as often claimed, sister of Samuel and Edward Fuller [MF 1:96, 5:7; NEHGR 110:182-83]. On 30 October 1623 Edward Winslow wrote from London to 'his much respected Uncle Mr. Robert Jackson' who was clerk of the sewers at Spalding, Lincolnshire. In his letter he wrote that 'almost two years since I wrote to my father-in-law declaring the death of his son White & the continued health of his daughter and her two children; also how that by God's providence she was become my wife... My wife hath had one child by me, but it pleased him that gave it to take it again unto himself; I left her with child at my departure (whom God preserve) but hope to be with her before her delivery' [NEHGR 1955:242-43. This remains the best clue to her identity."
