About Alexander White, of Stourton le Steeple

Parentage uncertain. His father's first name may have been Thomas. There is no consensus as to who his mother was. The exact number of children he had, and their names, is also uncertain, except that the William White who was the father of Resolved and Peregrine White was not one of them.

A more or less official consensus can be found here:

A descendant(?) and namesake, Alexander White, brother of Eleanor White Ruble and brother-in-law of Owen Ruble (also spelled Rubel), was a member of the First Continental Congress in America.

From volunteer Don Blauvelt: Extracted from the district probate registry at York attached to His Majesty's High Court of Justice: "In the name of God Amen the XXVth day of Mche in the yeare of o'r lord 1594 I Alexander White of Sturton... Item I give unto the Children of my brother John White and Will'm White... Item I give unto my sonn Charles White... Item I give to every one of my yong'r Sonnes Thomas, Roger and Edward White... Witnesses Robert Poole Charles White...

On the 6th day of May 1596 the Will of Alexander White late of Sturton in the County of Notts was proved by the Oath of Ellenore White Widow the Relict and sole Executrix." (this identifies two brothers and four sons, and we know of at least two daughters through other sources.)
