The wife of John Carver, the first governor of Plymouth Colony. Katherine was a prominent woman in the English Separatist church in Leiden, and it was not until their marriage that John Carver became a member of the separatists. It is not certain when they were married, but the records state that Katherine Carver witnessed the betrothal of Roger Chandler and Isabella Chilton on 22 May 1615, so it must have taken place sometime before May 1615. Katherine's father was Alexander White of Sturton-le-Steeple, Nottinghamshire. Her siblings were also active members of the church. Her sister Bridget was married to the Leiden congregation's pastor John Robinson. Her sister Jane was married to Randall Thickens, sister Frances was married to Francis Jessop, and her brother Roger White was also married to a prominent church member. Katherine and John Carver had no surviving children. They are known to have had one children, but it died in infancy on 11 November 1617.
