      "Resolved came to Plymouth in 1620 with his parents aboard the
      Mayflower, and after 1632 moved to Marshfield with his mother and
      stepfather. He resided in Scituate during the period when his children
      were born--1640 to 1656. He and Judith, and perhaps some of their
      children, travelled to Barbados in 1656/7, presumably to aid in the
      settling of the estate of her father, for on 17 March 1656/7 'Resolved
      White of Scituate in New Plymouth in New England, gentleman, and his
      wife Judith, daughter of William Vassall of this Island' deeded land in
      the Barbados, a deed acknowledged on March 20th by 'Resolved White's
      wife' and recorded at Barbados only four days later."
      "The family moved to Marshfield in 1662. and were still there in 1670 to
      at least 1682, being a freeman of Salem in 1680. He served in King
      Philip's War under Capt. Manning in 1676. He returned to Marshfield after
      the death of his second wife, for on 13 March 1684/5 'Resolved White of
      Marshfield' and sons Samuel and Josiah quit-claimed rights to an island,
      in return for which grantee John Branch would maintain Resolved's
      eldest son, William. We assume Resolved was still living on 19 Sept.
      1687 when William quit claimed his rights in the island to John Branch,
      mentioning his father, but not as 'deceased,' and mentioning the earlier
      deed of my father Mr. Resolved White.' The authors have found no
      evidence to support the claim of Pilgrim genealogist George E. Bowman
      that Resolved died between 1690 and 1694, no the oft-found statement
      that he died in Salem."
