A bricklayer, William worked at the Iron Works in Lynn MA for a time, but his work took him to other areas of New England. In Feb 1655 he was residing in Warwick, Kent Co RI and on 17 Oct 1656, he was granted a house lot adjoining his son-in-law "...Benjamine Herndell". In Feb 1657, he was granted a share for his "meddow" near another son-in-law, Thomas Walling [aka Wallen].

On 17 Feb 1659, son-in-law Benjamin was involved with authorities for his "...breach of peace and fright, Comitted on the family of william white, of this Towne." About 1665, William's daughter, Mrs Margaret Colwell, ran away with her married neighbor Thomas Walling [aka Wallen], whom she later married.

In Dec 1676, the widow Elizabeth White signed a document in Suffolk Co MA:
"Elizabeth White of Boston, relict of William White late of Boston, deeded for love etc. to her Son Cornelius White that part of land which his father (bequeathed to him) excepting the house wherein I dwell which is his after my decease and which I reserve to my Selfe during my life."

By Oct 1662, William had settled again in Boston, buying a house from Nathaniel Woodward. [Suffolk Deeds, 7:110] The house was located on land belonging to the town, which required William to pay rent until the land was granted ownership to him in Mar 1669/70.

In William's Will, written 13 Oct 1673 and proved 31 Jan 1674, he left to his wife and children:
"...all my vissable estate so long as she was a widowe and to have her thirds if she remarried; two Sonnes Isaacke & Cornelius White; two sonnes & 1 daughter Susanna Waggett, wife of Thomas Waggett after the decease of wife; to son William White 5 shillings... to other 3 daughters, Elyzabeth Harnden, wife of Benjamyne... Margaret Wallen, wife of Thomas Wallen, and Usrulla Bennett, the wife of John Bennett each 4 shillings."

In Dec 1676, the widow Elizabeth White signed a document in Suffolk Co MA:
"Elizabeth White of Boston, relict of William White late of Boston, deeded for love etc. to her Son Cornelius White that part of land which his father (bequeathed to him) excepting the house wherein I dwell which is his after my decease and which I reserve to my Selfe during my life."
