A Seahorse White documented in the Journal is also named after him. The illustrations are by
Botany Bay, 23 Jan 1790: "While the people were employed on shore, the natives came several times among them, and behaved with a kind of cautious friendship. One evening while the seine was hauling, some of them were present, and expressed great surprise at what they saw, giving a shout expressive of astonishment and joy when they perceived the quantity that was caught.
No sooner were the fish out of the water than they began to lay hold of them, as if they had a right to them, or that they were their own; upon which the officer of the boat, I think very properly, restrained them, giving, however, to each of them a part."
White returns to England: After a duel William Balmain, his assistant, White returned to England, with his Australian born son.
White's son fought at Waterloo, before returning to Australia.
