Markham


First Generation

1. Thomas1 Markham of Henrico Co. VA(1) (#257) was born in England probably before 1611. Thomas died probably before 26 Sept 1678 at approximately 67 years of age.

He married Susan Greenleafe. (Susan Greenleafe is #5808.)

The date of his arrival in Virginia is unknown. He might be the naughty boy, Thomas Markham who was transported from London in 1621. He certainly was not Miss Thomazin Markcom who departed Gravesend 24 July 1635, as has been written by some authors.(2)

It appears that on 20 Nov 1635 Thomas Markham was first granted a patent for 300 acres of land on the James River at Four Mile Creek, adjoining Bayly's land. 50 acres came to Thomas for his personal adventure, and 100 acres for the transport of two servants, John Fouke and Rich. Whitfield. 150 acres were granted in right of his wife Susan Greenleafe, relict of Robert, being 50 acres for her personal adventure and 100 acres for Robert Greenleafe her former husband being an original planter.(3)

Patent Book 1, Part I, page 314 records the patent in the name of Thomas Warren. It seems evident that the name must have been misread when the grant was trancribed from the original record into Patent Book 1 by Clerk Edward Harrison in 1683 - quite possible as the names "Warren" and "Markham" are of similar length and amplitude.

Page 371 of Patent Book 1 records another grant in Henrico County, identical in every particular, with wife relict of Robert Greenleafe and transportees John Foker and Richard Wall, in the name of Thomas Markham 11 July 1636, renewed, it says, by Sir John Harvey.(4)

Patent Book 1, page 436 records the patent again, identical in all details, with a date of 11 July 1637.(5)

16 Dec 1652 Thomas was in possession of the same land, which adjoined a grant made on that date to John Greenhough.(6)

All of the credit for tying this line together, from this immigrant, Thomas Markham, down to Arthur Markham, the Revolutionary War soldier who settled with his family in Georgia, goes to Mr. William H. Marcum. He and his wife, Fonda Gilbert Waters Marcum, spent many years researching his line, and presented their material in their 1982 book, The Way it Was with our Ancestors. He includes a summary of the legendary and famous members of the family in England. The individuals in this American family are fleshed out with far more information and background than will be given on this page.

The present author has reproduced the descent with the intent of recording the events and locations of the family members. As a family which produced a number of sons named Arthur, the present author views it as a potential source of some undiscovered brother who took off for Kentucky.

Thomas Markham of Henrico Co. VA and Susan Greenleafe had the following child:

Second Generation

2. Thomas2 Markham Jr. (Thomas1) (#5809) was born in Virginia after 1635.

He probably assumed possession of his father's land when Joseph Greenhough renewed the grant to a Thomas Markham 26 Sept 1678.(7)

Thomas Markham Jr. had the following children:

Third Generation

4. Arthur3 Markham (Thomas2, Thomas1) (#5810) was born in probably, Henrico Co, VA probably before 1690.

In 1716 Arthur was the owner of land adjoining Thomas Pleasants/William Edwards on the north side of the James in Henrico Co, VA.(9) Before 5 Nov 1716 (date recorded) Arthur purchased from Henry Gill for 20 L 150 ac. on the north side of the James.(10) 3 Dec 1716 Arthur was the owner of land adjoining Robert Blaws, who bought on the north side of the James.(11) 5 Dec 1716 Arthur Markham witnessed the will of John Woodson in Henrico Co, VA.(12) Arthur purchased by deed recorded at the October term of court 1720 land from Joseph Pleasants in Henrico Co, VA.(13) He resided in Henrico, VA in 1721.(14)

Arthur Markham had the following children:

Fourth Generation

5. Thomas4 Markham of Amelia Co. VA (Arthur3, Thomas2, Thomas1) (#233) was born in Virginia before 24 April 1711. Thomas died 1749 in Amelia Co, VA, at 38 years of age.

He married Agnes (Markham) Daniel probably before 1739. (Agnes (Markham) Daniel is #6679.) Agnes was born probably before 1722.

24 April 1732 Thomas Markham of Goochland Co, VA sold to Joseph Mayo of Henrico for 5 pounds 286 acres in Henrico County, at the head of White Oak Swamp, bounded as by patent to John and Joseph Pleasants. This is probably the same land that was acquired by Arthur Markham from Joseph Pleasants.(15)

21 Nov 1740 Thomas Markham of Amelia County bought 100 acres on the north side of Haw Branch in Amelia Co, VA from Daniel Hamlin.(16)

An inventory of Thomas's estate valued about 40 pounds was taken 12 April 1750 in Amelia Co, VA.(17)

Thomas Markham of Amelia Co. VA and Agnes (Markham) Daniel had the following children:

6. Arthur4 Markham (Arthur3, Thomas2, Thomas1) (#5813) was born in Virginia around 1725.

He married Martha (Hill) after 2 May 1792 (bond date) in Bedford Co, VA. (Martha (Hill) is #6104.) Martha was born before 1775.

He resided in Prince Edward Co, VA before 1752. 22 Oct 1767 Arthur reported finding a roan mare colt in Prince Edward Co, VA.(29) In 1785 Arthur was taxed for no white souls, 1 dwelling and one other building in Prince Edward Co, VA.(30) Before 22 June 1785 (date recorded) Arthur sold to Robert Franklyn 200 acres in Prince Edward Co, VA.(31) "Researcher Bill Marcum describes Arthur Markham's Prince Edward co, Va planation as 200 acres bounded by the property of Samuel Morrison and William North and the Ridge Road, and on the tax roll it is described as adjacent to Payton Randolph's Spring Creek Estate."

In 1787 Arthur was taxed for himself, 2 or 4 horses, 11 cattle in Bedford Co, VA.(32) In 1788 Arthur purchased from Philip Ison and wife Sally for 6225 land on Ivy Creek in Bedford Co, VA.(33) In 1790 Arthur was taxed for 1 dwelling, no persons in Prince Edward Co, VA.(34) Arthur took out a bond to marry Martha (Hill) 2 May 1792 in Bedford Co, VA.(35) 1 April 1794 Arthur Markham and his wife Martha sold to Sam Scott 200 ac on Ivy Creek that was bought from Philip Aran in Bedford Co, VA.(36) In 1796 Arthur purchased from John Hill & wife 100 acres on Reed Creek in Bedford Co, VA.(37) 26 Feb 1798 he sold to Thomas Markham of Bedford Co. VA in Bedford Co, VA. "Arthur Markham deeded to his son Thomas Markham as a gift 196 acres and a negro woman slave, reserving the right to live on the place until his (Arthur's) death."

Arthur Markham had the following children:
