Andrew White is another one of those frustrating ancestors who seem to appear out of thin air. There are no clues as to where he was born and because of this most of the old genealogies suggest that he was an immigrant. There was another White family that lived in Watertown, that of John White, and it is possible that Andrew was a kinsman, but it is just as possible that their common surname was only a coincidence. An Andrew White was deposed in 1689 in Middlesex County Court and gave his age at 23, this would put his birth year close to 1666.
The White family, at least Andrew and Sarah, remained in Watertown for the rest of their lives. Andrew seems to have been fairly successful as he and another man, Nathaniel Sterns, paid 400 pounds for a house and farm. Andrew also bought land in Cambridge.
Andrew died May 13 1742. William Richard Cutter is a bit confusing in that he states that Sarah died on December 31 1749 and then turns around and says that Andrew had a second wife named Mary with whom he had more children.
