The relationship between a witch and a whitelighter was originally forbidden by the Elders. For this reason, only a small number of Whitelighter-Witches exist, most of which are born within the Warren line of witches.
The first known Whitelighter-Witch is Paige Matthews, the daughter of Sam Wilder and Patty Halliwell. In order to keep Paige's birth a secret from the Elders, the couple brought her to a church, where a nun named Sister Agnes gave her to Mr. and Mrs. Matthews to be raised. Due to being raised my mortals, she didn't know about her magical side until her half-sister's death.
The second known Whitelighter-witch is a man named Simon Marks, who comes from the Marks line of witches. However, nothing about his birth or past is known.
Henry Mitchell Junior, the adopted son of Paige Matthews and Henry Mitchell, was given Whitelighter-Witch powers and abilities by the Elders, so he could fight alongside his sisters and cousins against evil.
