Do you mean his birth family? Or do you want to know about his descendents? If so, and he was born 1841 and then married later (when and where did he marry?), he should be on the censuses with his wife, and children if they had any. Have you checked censuses? It would be easier to help if you could be a bit clearer about exactly what you want to know.

Have you tried looking at the family trees on ancestry or genes reunited to see if anyone else has him in their tree? That may be your best bet in terms of finding any other descendents,

Hi I am a descendant of Thomas Whites family if you are still interested please let me know. I am the daughter of Dennis Walwyn White who is a grandson of Harry White. My name is Jacqueline Louise Collison and I have a brother named Thomas Ernest White. I am interested to find out what info you have too.
Kind regards.

Came across this post by complete accident. Thomas White was my great great grandfather on my fathers side of the family. His daughter Emma was my great grandmother and her daughter Phyllis Smith was my grandmother - my fathers mother. As far as I'm aware Emma had 6 children Phyllis, Winifred, Carrie, Jess Edie and Tom. Apart from my father I am only aware of Molly and Alan - daughter and son of Carrie - that are still alive and they actually still live in Haywards Heath in the house that Thomas White built and left to their mother.

I do have a photo of him together with a copy of a newspaper cutting announcing his death in which he is described as someone who never made an enemy. I believe he was a founder member of the Haywards . Heath building society.
