    Excerpt from "Certain Comeoverers": The earliest list of freemen in Rochester in 1684 gives the name of Samuel White. He was of the first board of Selectmen in 1690. On October 15, 1689, he took the oath of fidelity under Governor Hinckley. In 1709 he is named in a list of seventeen male members of the First Church of Rochester.

    Notes:

    Excerpt from "Certain Comeoverers": Resolved may have seen that "Chesterfield of his people, the whole hearted great souled savage," Samoset, when on Friday the sixteenth day of March, 1621, he presented himself on the hill at Plymouth and boldly advancing towards the astonished Pilgrims, addressed them in English and bade them welcome. Winslow has written the story of this wonderful visit of the sagamore of a far distant tribe who gave the wondering strangers full information about the unknown and unseen inhabitants who surrounded them, and offered to assist them in establishing friendly relations with them. "The wind beginning to rise a little we cast a horseman's coat about him, for he was stark naked, only a leather about his wast, with a fringe about a span long or little more; he had a bow and two arrowes, the one headed and the other unheaded; he was a tall, straight man; the haire of his head blacke, long behind, only short before, none on his face at all; he asked some beere, but we gave him strong water and bisket and butter and cheese and pudding and a peece of mallerd, all which he liked well and had been acquained with such amongst the English." He stayed two days and then went away returning in a few days with five "other tall proper men" whom he introduced as friends. He came again on the 22nd day of March bringing with him Tisquantum, subsequently more often called Squanto, who proved a most valuable friend to the Pilgrims. Tisquantum had been captured and taken to England in 1605 by George Waymouth and had lived in London, in Cornhill, and was well versed in the English tongue. Samoset and Tisquantum were the messengers who announced the approach of the great Sagamore Massasoit which Samoset had arranged. With this inestimable service Samoset disappears from the intimate history of the Plymouth Colony. This "chevalier sans peur et sans reproche" never again came into close contact with the Pilgrims, but his influence among his own people, the Pemaquids, and among the Massachusetts was later of inestimable value to the settlers of the Massachusetts Bay Colonies.
    In 1638 he owned lands in Scituate a half mile south of the barbor, which he afterwards sold to Lieutenant Isaac Buck. When he was twenty-six years of age he married Judith, daughter of William Vassall of Scituate (April 8, 1640). In the year of his marriage the Court at Plymouth set off to him one hundred acres of land on "Belle House Neck," adjoining Mr. Vassall's plantation. In 1646 he acquired other adjoining lands from Mr. Vassall. In 1662 he sold these properties and removed to Marshfield, where he settled near his mother at "Carewell" and not far from his brother Peregrine on the South River. It is not known when Judith, his wife, died, but on August 5, 1674, he married Abigail, widow of William Lord of Salem, and removed to Salem, where probably he died. There is no records of his death at Plymouth. In a deed of certain land to his son Josiah in 1677 he describes himself as of Salem. In Governor Josiah Winslow's will, which was written in 1675, there is a bequest to "my brother Resolved White." Governor Winslow died December 12, 1680, and there is a tradition that at his funeral Resolved White was present.
    Resolved Wite and Judith Vassall had eight children. With the exception of William (who died in Marshfield, 1695,) none of these children remained in Scituate or Marshfield. Some of them went to the Barbadoes, where their grandfather Vassall's family lived. Resolved White had been one of the original twenty-six purchasers of the first precinct of Middleboro in 1662 from the Indian Chief Wampatuck, and it is probable that some of his children took up these holdings. At all events the Whites of Middlebor and of Bristol County are largely the descendants of the Mayflower's boy Resolved.

    Resolved married Judith VASSALL 08 Apr 1640, Rochester, Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States. Judith (daughter of William VASSELL and Anne KINGE) was born 1619, Of, Stephney, Middlesex, England; died 03 Apr 1670, Marshfield, Plymouth County, Massachusetts; was buried 03 Apr 1670, Marshfield, Plymouth, Massachusetts.
