About Ebenezer White, M.A.

Rev. Ebenezer White was a graduate of Harvard University receiving a Master of Arts in 1692. He went on to serve as Pastor of the church at Southampton, LI, NY where he own son later served.

From The Early History of Southampton L. I., New York, with Genealogies By George Rogers HOWELL. Page 108 "Ministers":

The seventh pastor was the Rev. Silvanus White. Webster says of him : “He was born in 1704. His father, Rev. Ebenezer White, came with his parents from England to Massachusetts at an early age, and was the minister of Bridgehampton, Long Island, from its first organization as a parish in 1695.”. But Webster is incorrect as to one point—the grandfather of Rev. Ebenezer was the emigrant as appears in the family genealogy. May 27, 1695. The town voted to give him 15 acres of land if he came as Pastor of the church at Sagg.
