It seems that the H. WHITE who was the landlord of the Marlborough Arms in Dedham in 1855 was one of my Great Great Great Grandfathers. His name was Henry White, and the Mary White who was the landlady in 1862 and 1867 was his wife ( widow by then as Henry was buried in Dedham on 5th June 1861 ). *+
