Question: Can you tell me how the family of Thomas White of Weymouth is related to the Mayflower family?
Answer: The family of Thomas White of Weymouth, Massachusetts is not related to William White of Plymouth, Massachusetts. The surname of White in Colonial New England is very common. Some other families include Anthony White (d. 16868) of Watertown, Mass; Gawen White (d. 1664/5) of Scituate, Mass.; John White (d. 1683/4) of Hartford, Conn.; John White (d. ca. 1673) of Salem, Mass., Nicholas White of Taunton, Mass.; and another William White of Salisbury, Conn. For your family of Weymouth I would suggest an article you can view on our website in the NEHGS Register (152:184-185).
