About Robert White, of Swanborn

White (South Warnborough, co. Hants, and of Okingham). Argent a chevron gules between three popinjays [parrots] vert, collared of the second [gules], on a border azure eight bezants [roundels or].

This differs from White of Hutton only in that the parrots are not also beaked and legged gules.


Robert was the ancestor of John Barber White and of Thomas White who married Ann Cecil, eldest sister of William, Lord Burleigh, Lord High Treasurer of England. [This is according to "Genesis of the White Family", which is an example of how NOT to do genealogical research. All of the above statements are false.]

Since his nephew, not his son, inherited Swanbourne, his son either predeceased him or, perhaps, was extramarital and therefore not entitled to inherit.
