Biography*Althought no frim proof has been found for the parents of Solomon White, he is assumed to have been a son of Simcock White. This is based on the fact that on 26 Feb 1765 Solomon White was the security on the administration of the estates of both Wrixom White and his dec'd wife Grace White.

It was in this year that Solomon White bought 75 arcres of Whitelaw's tract A105, which is South and East of Parksley, from Southy Simpson. In 1752 he bought the balance of 125 acres from Simpson. While no survey for any part of the Simpson 200 acres was found, the land was the south-east corner of the tract..6

Biography*The parents of Simcock White are unproven. He is assumed to have been a son of William White II, planter, who had other unnamed children when he named only a son William in his verbal will of 1702. In 1713 Simcock White bought part of tract A121 which is White's Neck and was the location of named son William. Simcock not being shown in the Tithable List from 1663 to 1695 could be explained by the fact he would have been underage that he would have been listed with William White II. Since he was not shown on a headright list between 1663 & 1709, he was probably born in the colony. 
Birth*circa 1676Simcock was born circa 1676 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Marriage*circa 1700He married Mary (-----) circa 1700 at Accomack Co, VA.2 
Land bought*5 September 1713Simcock bought land on 5 September 1713 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Simcock White, wife Mary, bought 150 acres for 7,300 lbs tobacco of tract A121 west of the Baily land and between the two roads (sea side road and US Rt 13) from John 'X' Wharton of Somerset County and his wife Susannah Wharton, who relinquished her dower rights on 6 Oct 1713. The deed showed it bounded land owned by Thomas Crippen, John Onions, Roger Miles & Samuel Church. It was witnessed by Jno. Johnson & Francis Wharton. When Simcock White died intestate in 1719 he was succeeded by a son Wrixham White (wife Grace who later married Robert Russell), who in died intestate in 1765 leaving a son Hezekiah to succeed him. Then in 1770 Hezekiah White sold 50 acres at the west end to Thomas Hickman, and in his will 8 years later, Hezekiah said that Thomas Hickman was to get 25 acres more, and the residue was to be sold; later in the year his executor sold 50 acres to Ambrose Willett..3,4 
Anecdote*1717 Simcock White was on a jury 3 different times: 1 Oct 1717, 6 Oct 1719 & 3 May 1720.5,6 
Death*before 4 April 1721Simcock died before 4 April 1721 at Accomack Co, VA. According to Whitelaw, Simcock White died intestate in 1719 and was succeeded by a son Wrixham White. However, it was not until 4 Apr 1721 that Mary White, widow & relict of Simcock White dec'd, petitioned the court for letters of administration on said estate of her husband dec'd and that he dying intestate... John Justice and Joynas Davis securities..2,7,3 
Est settm't*13 September 1721Simcock estate was settled on 13 September 1721 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that the inventory & appraisal of Simcock White was returned and signed by Mary 'X' White. Appraiser: Thos. Evans, William 'X' Nicolyion & Thomas Crippen Jnr. The estate sale and final settlement could not be readily located in the indexes in the Acc Co Clerk's Office. (NOTE: William 'X' Nickelson also was an appraiser of the estate of Charles White, on 9 Oct 1721, who is assumed to have been a brother to Simcock White.)8
