Research in Old England

While hunting for my gggf, who turned out to be Arthur of Gallatin County, I collected a lot of information about other Marcum and Markham families. I've extracted information from various sources and public records to augment various printed genealogical articles that have tied those people into families. The results of my research are being put up here on thiese web pages as time permits.

I've extracted all of the Virginia bound emigrants from the four volumes of Peter Coldham's series Complete Book of Emigrants, as well as from Coldham's Emigrants in Bondage, and prepared a report on Emigrant Marcum/Markhams from England.

On the opposite shore, I've collected all of the Marcums and Markhams from Nell Marion Nugent's Cavaliers and Pioneers. The strays appear in a report on Early Marcum/Markhams of Virginia.

With the aim of collecting bundles of straws to reduce the size of the haystack, I've put up a descendant report based on Lidie Rivers' series of articles that appeared in The Virginia Magazine of History and Genealogy on the family of John Markham of Chesterfield Co. VA.

Similarly, I've prepared an outline of the descendants of Thomas Markham of Henrico from the material in William Marcum's The Way it Was With Our Ancestors. I didn't pursue the line into Georgia, where in fact it may have been that way, but I've noted some discrepancies between The Way and the public records of Virginia.

Looking for Marcum/Markhams associated with Gallatin County has led to an interest in Markhams named Lewis, as one such was the first of the name mentioned in Gallatin County records. So, I'm studying Lewis Markham of Virginia, who was in Westmoreland County in the 1660s. The Rev War vet Lewis Markham was a son of John Markham of Stafford Co. VA.

I've made a report of the descendants of John Markham of Botetourt County and his brother Thomas Markham of Bedford County. Separately I've gathered information about some other early Marcum/Markhams of Bedford County, and I've collected information about some Marcum/Markhams of Franklin County, Lee County, Middlesex County, and, more generally, some Unconnected Marcum/Markhams of Virginia.

To organize the early colonists, I've prepared a Geographical Index and Chronological Index of individuals and families associated with events, linking into the reports described above.

I've prepared a combined every name index of all of the reports by copying the indexes from the end of each report into a single page. There's also a list of surnames that link into the index file. Once you find a name in the index, the link will pop you right to him in his page.
