Birth*circa 1570Nicholas was born circa 1570. 
Marriage*12 January 1591He married Francine Jacob on 12 January 1591 at Cologne, Germany. 
Anecdote* According to Henrietta (Ayres) Sheppard, since the Chrisitian named of Nicholas came down in the family of Nikolaus Varlet of Cologne, Germany, and in that of Casper Varlet of Amsterdam, Holland, it seems highly probable that they were closely related, but in what way has not as yet been established. She also states that name of Varleth has an unmistakable French structure, a corruption of perhaps Valet, and it is no improbable it was borne by some French exile who took refuge in Holland, in order to escape the religious persecutions of his native land, which prevailed during the latter part of the 16th century. The first members of the family in New Netherland (New York) were natives of Utrecht and Amsterdam, Holland.1 
Death*18 December 1605Nicholas died on 18 December 1605 at Cologne, Germany. 
Burial*His body was interred at Protestant Cem, Gologne, Germany.

Anecdote12 October 1659 On Sunday, October 12/2, 1659, the secretary of the colony of Maryland, Philip Calvert, welcomed New Netherland ambassadors Augustine Herrman and Resoled Waldron to his plantation near Saint Mary's City. Dispatched to Maryland as emissaries of Director General of New Netherland Petrus Stuyvesant, Herrman and Waldron were in the English colony to settle a border dispute between New Netherland and Maryland. Just two months earlier, Maryland Governor Josias Fendall and his council had decided to enforce Lord Baltimore's claim to the west bank of the Delaware River (what the Dutch called the South River) below the fortieth parallel (present-day Philadelphia) and demanded that the Dutch settlers there depart immediately from what Fendall and Baltimore considered part of Maryland. As far as Stuyvesant was concerned, these lands were rightful Dutch terriories by virtue of West India Company patents, land purchases from Native Americans, and three decades of occupation. Already well-connected in the Netherlands and New Amsterdam, Herrman solidified his trade to the Chesapeake when he married Jannetje Varlet (var. Warleth) in December 1651. Varlet was also the sister of Anna Varlet, who had recently moved to Virginia after marrying German-born Dr. George Hack. Trading on her own account, Anna Varlet Hack organized a steady trade between the Chesapeake and New Netherland. Soon after he married her sister, Herrman became one of Anne Varlet Hack's trading partners. Seeking to further augment his Chesapeake trade, Herrman also acquired land in Northampton County on Virginia's Eastern Shore, near Hack's plantation, in 1655. Whether he intended to plant tobacco there or simply use his land as a place to store trade goods is unclear, but it is more certain that Herrman did not remain in Virginia long. By January 1656 he was back on the South River as one of the witnesses of a land sale between the West India Company and the Native American inhabitants of lands along the Schuylkill River just north of its intersection with the Delaware. At the same time, Herrman also began to trade to the Caribbean, mixing personal trade with work on behalf of the West India Company. During the next decade, Herrman took advantage of his new Virginia connections, variously supplying horses, lumber manufactured goods, salt, and slaves to Virginia correspondents. He traded indiscriminately with English colonists, such as John Custis and Grace Vaughan of Northampton County, Virginia, and Major John Billingsley and Colonel John Price of Maryland, and with Dutch planters who had migrated from New Netherland, including Simon Oversee and Anna Varlet . .4

Anecdote17 December 1667 Depostion of Mr. Ambross White, aged about 35 years, on 17 Dec 1667: Said that in the present month he was at Mr. Stephen's house and heard some persons debate with Mr. Pitts, who was then going to apprehend some Indians for rebellion. The chief argument used against Pitts in favor of the Indians was that they had lately lived on the north side of the Pocomoke River. These persons argued against the action to apprehend the rebellious Indians, but White could not give particulars. Three or four days later, White came down the Pokomoke River at night, and seeing a fire, landed and was soon met by armed Indians, who treated them with friendliness. White stayed till the tide favored their departure, and in that time "did inform himself by the discourse of those with him" that the Indians were strong enough on the north side of the river to withstand the power of Virginia's pursuit, and felt secure among their friends on the north side of the river. Signed, Amb. Wite.3 
Marriage*before 1670He married Comfort Waddelowe, daughter of Nicholas Waddelowe (Quaker) and Amey (-----), before 1670 at Accomack Co, VA.4,5

Williams, Robert Mason, John Lanes, Christopher Roberts and Tho. Shepeard. (NOTE: Since it took some time to process such a headright certificate, the 400 acres could have been for the Ambrose White who was dec'd by 5 Nov 1667. However, it could have also been for his son Ambrose, who married Comfort Waddilow, and it would have been his son Ambross on the list of headright.)6 
Land patented1670Ambrose patented land in 1670 at Tangier Island, Acc Co, VA. It was in this year that Ambrose White received a patent for 400 acres called simply an island in the Chesapeake Bay. The next year he and his wife Comfort assigned it to Charles Scarburgh and John West..7

This was part of Whitelaw's tract A1, east of Belle Haven. It was later patented by William Anderson as deserted by White and sold to Arthur Robins in 1678. Also in this year a patent for 2,150 of tract A64 (between Melfa, Onley & Locustville) was granted to Ambrose White and is treated separately in Whitelaw as tract A70, which is northeast of Onley. Whitelaw shows that Ambrose & Comfort White sold this in three known parcels and one more that was unrecorded. In 1672 they sold 200 acres to Edmund Allen. In 1673 they sold 500 acres to Richard Bayly and in 1678 they sold 1,200 acres to John Cole.

In 1680 a new patent went to John Tankred as having been deserted by White..13

It was on this date that he was named to assist the wife (no name) of Robert Mason as Extr. to see my land confirmed to my children.
