Date27 July 1914
DescriptionCharles White was elected a Fellow in 1762 and his name stands in the list of Fellows of 1804. The list does not give the addresses of the Fellows. The notice of his life in the Dictionary of National Biography states that he died in his country house at Sale in the parish of Ashton on Mersey, Cheshire, and he is described as having planted a large collection of trees at Sale, the probability is that he owned that house in 1804.
