The following data is extracted from The Descendants of Thomas White.
May 8, 1707, he sold to George Girdler an acre of' land in the "Ferry Lotts," which appears to have been his last conveyance in real estate. Feb. 5, 1718-49, shortly after the decease of his widow, the following division of the homestead was made among the heirs, which transaction alone reveals or throws any light upon the history of his family, all other records being silent, and beginning with the births or baptisms of the second generation. The property in question consisted of two parcels of land and a dwelling-house near the ferry. The first piece, containing three acres and one hundred and twelve poles, with the house, was bounded on the highway and Salem harbor, the land of John Poach and Thomas White. The second piece, containing eighteen poles, lay on the eastern side of the highway - the whole being divided into nine lots, and portioned out as follows: To Thomas White, shoreman, two lots, nine poles wide, with the house thereon; to Benjamin White, fisherman, the third lot, five poles wide; to Samuel White, fisherman, the fourth lot, six poles wide; to Henry Grant, fisherman, and wife Mary, the fifth lot, five poles and three links wide; to John Adams, shoreman, and wife Sarah, the sixth lot, five poles and ten links wide; to Edward Norris, of Salem, turner, and wife Remember, the seventh lot, six poles wide; to Jeremiah Reed, Salem, fisherman, and wife Abigai1, the eighth lot, bounded on the harbor, seven poles and seven links wide; and to John White, Marblehead, coaster, the ninth lot, eighteen poles wide, on the eastern side of the highway, and the cow's lease, belonging thereto, the foregoing all being children of Thomas and Remember White.
Mr. White was born, as nearly as can be computed from the marriage of his son Thomas, about the year 1642, and administration on his estate was granted, Dec. 31, 1714, to his widow, who gave bonds in £200, with Samuel White and Francis Grant. Inventory of his estate, £107 6s. presented in court, June 30, 1715, by John Calley and Francis Grant.
