  :: History Of The Name WHITE ::


The bearers of White (and its variants) are generally thought to have come from the noble family of Le Blancs in Normandy, who traveled to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest. Although the name certainly came to Britain from Normandy, there is some speculation that it already existed in Britain prior to the conquest. The word “white” itself is derived from the Old English word “hwit”. This name was most likely originally used as a nickname for a person with white hair or a pale complexion.


The name was first found in Durham, where the White family held a seat from the very early times.  


Some of the first settlers of this family name were:

William White and his wife, Susannah, who immigrated to Plymouth in 1620 with their sons, Resolve and Peregrine.
