White Genealogy & History

White is an ancient English name that originally described a person with light skin or hair, perhaps an ethnic term given to the paler Anglo-Saxons by the darker native Celts. Variations include Wight, Whyte and Whight, some of which may have described those from the Isle of Wight or living near a "wight," a bend in the river. White genealogy dates to 1070 in England: Ordgar se Wite. The White family history in America records William White emigrating in 1620, with a son born on board: the first English child born in New England. The White family motto is "labore parta", meaning born out of labor.
