Who are the White family in Emmerdale?

The White family arrived in Emmerdale in 2014.

Robert Sugden returned to the village with his new fiancée Chrissie, Chrissie’s father Lawrence and Chrissie’s son Lachlan.

In 2016, Chrissie’s sister Rebecca arrived in the village.

The same year Chrissie learnt when her parents Lawrence and Ellen were together they had an open marriage and Lawrence wasn’t her biological dad.

A man named John Richards was Chrissie’s birth father.

Emmerdale: Chrissie and Lawrence White

Then White family stirred up drama since their arrival, however now none of them are in the village.

After Rebecca arrived in the village, she had a fling with Chrissie’s ex-fiancé Robert, resulting in her falling pregnant with a son.

She gave birth to baby boy who she called Sebastian.

In December 2017, Lawrence made the decision to move to Australia with Chrissie, Rebecca, Lachlan and baby Seb.

As they were about to head off, Robert kidnapped Seb while Robert’s sister Victoria acted as a distraction.

Robert took off in his car with Seb and soon Rebecca, Lawrence, Chrissie and Lachlan realised what happened and chased after him.

Chrissie was driving and Lachlan was in the passenger seat, with Lawrence and Rebecca sat in the back.

Lachlan was struggling after Chrissie convinced Belle Dingle to break up with him and had suicidal thoughts.

He grabbed the steering wheel and drove into the path of an oncoming lorry.

Chrissie and Lawrence died in the crash, Rebecca had serious head injuries and Lachlan survived.

Lachlan White

Lachlan told his best friend Gerry how he was responsible for his mother and grandfather’s deaths.

Gerry kept joking about telling on Lachlan, so he went on to kill Gerry.

Lachlan then took his aunt Rebecca after she found Liv Flaherty and Robert unconscious in Mill Cottage with Lachlan.

He kept her in a chalet and told her the truth about the car crash.

It looked like he killed Rebecca when he strangled her.

But it was eventually revealed to viewers that Rebecca was alive and in a  psychiatric hospital, being kept by a retired nurse.

Rebecca got free and managed to find Aaron, Victoria and Robert.

After Lachlan tried to get Belle to run away with him, she managed to get away and was accidentally run over by Robert.

Lachlan was arrested and taken to prison, where he currently remains.

After escaping Lachlan, Rebecca and Ross rekindled their romance.

In 2018 they made the decision to move to Liverpool with Seb.

They also share custody of Ross’s son, Moses, with his mother Charity Dingle.
