  • Birth: Jan 27 1692 - Haverhill,Eassex,Mass.
  • Parents: John Capt. White, Lydia Gilman
  • Husband: Samuel Phillips
  • Death: Jan 7 1773 - Andover,Mass.

In 1712, shortly after coming to Andover, the Reverend Samuel Phillips married Hannah White, daughter of the Honorable John White, of Haverhill. With her he regularly made his parochial visits on horseback, she riding on a pillion behind him. Following the practice of even the poorest in those days, he bestowed one tenth of his income on worthy charities, and she devoted much of her time to distributing this sum among the needy families of the town. She was a lady of a large-hearted type, who, through her generosity and hospitality, increased her husband's influence.
