Jennett White was born in Ireland around 1730. She may have been a daughter of John White (b. 1710) and his wife Margaret.
On 25 Apr 1744, she married William James Taylor, Sr. at Saint Stephen and Saint Benet, Sherehog, London, London, England. In 1767, they boarded the ship Earl of Donegal and sailed from Belfast to Charleston, South Carolina. From there, they made their way to Laurens County, where a land grant awaited them.
