My mother's maiden name was WHITE. Her WHITE ancestors came from Wiltshire.

Family tradition states that somewhere in the WHITE ancestry there is a
connection with John Bird SUMNER, Archbishop of Cantebury. Apparently,
according to tradition, John was an "uncle" to someone in the WHITE family.

I am including below a descendancy chart for what I have found about the
SUMNER family. I realize that these people are not in Wiltshire But I am
hoping that someone can give me some help in filling in some of the gaps,
such as spouses and other siblings, that may fit in with the Wiltshire WHITE
family.

Any help in information on names, dates, and places or where to find this
information would be much appreciated.

Thanks.
