Birth*circa 1645John was born circa 1645 at Coldicott, Newport Pagenell, Buckinghamshire, England.2 
Anecdote*25 August 1665 John White apparently did not come to the Eastern Shore of Maryland settlement until about 1664 or 1665, associating himself from the first with the Pocomoke River section. He is first mentioned as a member of the Commission of the Peace for the "Eastern Shore" on 25 Aug 1665; appearing again in the commission of 23 Feb 1665/6. He is also named a member of the first court for Somerset County, commissioned on 22 Aug 1666. Though thus commissioned White does not appear to have qualified by taking the usual oath of office and there is no record of his having sat as a member of the courts held between September 1666 and October 1668. John White's name appears in successive commissions to the court, 9 Feb 1669/70, 22 Feb 1672/3, 2 Mar 1675/6, and 6 Jun 1676. On 9 Feb 1669/70 John White was commissioned captain of a company of horse of for the whole of Somerset County, and was a representative from Somerset in the Lower House of the Maryland Assembly, Oct-Nov 1678. In 1681 John White appears to have been Sheriff of Somerset County.1 
Marriage*27 June 1672He married Sarah Keyser, daughter of George Keyser and (-----) (-----), on 27 June 1672 at Somerset Co, MD. John White and Sarah Keyser were married by Mr. Robert Maddox, Clerk.
