Sir George Croke (c. 1560 - 1642) was British judge.

Robert White (1645-1703) was a draughtsman and engraver. Born in London and was apprenticed to David Loggan, whose position as the leading line engraver for the print trade he later inherited. His output was huge, and in fact has never been fully documented. White's principal activity was as a portrait engraver. He usually engraved these from his own drawings, made from life in black lead on vellum. The majority of his portraits were made on commission from publishers who used them as frontispieces for books. As well as frontispieces, he engraved book-plates, almanacs and architectural views. His son, George White, was also an engraver.
