    2nd son.
    In 1569 Leixlip castle was granted to Nicholas Whyte, Master of the Rolls and remained in the possesion of the Whyte family until 1731 when it was sold by John Whyte to William Connolly for 11,883..
    Sir Nicholas White, from whom the Whytes of Loughbrickland are descended, was twice married, first to a lady called Sherlock, and secondly, in 1587, to Mary, daughter of Andrew Brereton. This lady had been so unfortunate as to have previously married one Thomas Might, sometime Surveyor of the Victuals in Ireland, who was discovered to have a wife alive in England.
    After Sir Nicholas White's death she married Sir Thomas Hartpole, of Carlow. By his first wife Sir Nicholas White had, besides a daughter, three sons, Andrew, Thomas (who died before him in 1588), and James, two of whom were educated at Cambridge.
    His daughter Mary was three times married, first to Robert Browne, who was murdered in the County Wexford while his father-in-law was seneschal of that county; secondly, to Christopher Darcy, of Platten, and thirdly, to Nicholas St. Lawrence, twenty-first Baron Howth.
    Andrew White, who succeeded his father, entered Lincoln's Inn in 1578 as a barrister from Furnival's Inn, and three years later married Margaret, daughter of Patrick Finglas, of Westpalstown, and step-daughter of Richard Netterville of Kilsallaghan.
    In 1585 Andrew White was in London, and to his father's regret preferred "to exercise his legs at Court rather than to sit at study in Lincoln's Inn." He became a Roman Catholic, and was looked upon by Sir William Fitzwilliam, who took steps td prevent his approaching the Queen while his father was a prisoner, and by Archbishop Loftus, as a dangerous conspirator involved in plots emanating from Rome and Spain.
