JOHN WHITE 1550-1618

Excerpt from Wikipedia - son, Rev. John White.
He was son of John White, who held a lease under New College, Oxford, by his wife Isabel, daughter of John Bawle of Lichfield, and was baptised at Stanton St. John, Oxfordshire, on 6 January 1575. His elder brother, Josias, was rector of Hornchurch, Essex, 1614–23, and father of James White, a merchant of Boston, Massachusetts. In 1587 he entered Winchester School, and then was elected a fellow of New College in 1595. He graduated B.A. on 12 April 1597, M.A. on 16 January 1601. He was appointed rector of Holy Trinity, Dorchester, in 1606, and for the rest of his life was identified with that place. He was a moderate, conforming puritan, concerned with reforming his parish.
