About Richard Whyte

The White family tree is severely tangled from this point backward, and very little about it can be trusted at all.

-------------------------------------

Early information (the Visitations, etc.) claimed that Richard White married a Margaret "Sherley", a belief perpetuated in and through the infamous "Genesis of the White Family" by the fraudulent "genealogist" Emma Siggins White.

Later information (History of Parliament Online, etc.) gives her family name as Strelley, and claims that she was the daughter of Sir Nicholas Strelley of Nottinghamshire.

From the White Family of Hutton posted by the Parish of Hutton All Saints with Peter:

http://www.huttonchurch.co.uk/about-our-churches/the-white-family-of-hutton.php (they only know what they've been told, and not everything they've been told is accurate)

The first Richard White, living then in Runwell, had the manor of Hutton after Jerome Weston; he married locally, a Tyrell related to the Petres; one of their [grand-?]daughters, Susan, became lady in waiting to Princess Mary, married the Clarencieux King of Arms [Thomas Tonge, held the office 1534-1536], officiated at [Mary's] coronation and was presented with a jewel box by Philip of Spain for her efforts at the wedding in Winchester of the couple after Mary had been crowned. At Mary’s death she fled in exile to France.

Her nephew [Sir] George [White, MP] is the main benefactor for Hutton’s charities.
