About Anne White

Anne Gray, daughter of Andrew Gray of Hinxworth, was the first wife of Sir Richard White IV. She had at least one son (probably died young), one daughter, Mary, married in 1632 in a secret Catholic ceremony to Sir Robert Brett of Whitstanton, Somerset, and arguably a second daughter who may have been the ambiguous Frances White Wells.

Supported by: Visitations of Essex, 1612; Visitations of Essex, 1634; letter from Clerk [John Southcott] to [Peter Biddulph], dated 23 August 1632, published in Newsletters from the Caroline Court, 1631-1638: Volume 26, p. 128 (Cambridge University Press).

Note: the Frances White who married John Petre was NOT her daughter, but the daughter of Lady Catherine Weston. It was a not uncommon practice at this period to give the same name to siblings born of different mothers - or occasionally the same mother.
