Witnesses: Will Brown, Arthur Allen.

*Surry Book 1, p. 270

Note: Capt. William Cockerham and Mr. CHARLES (1) BARHAM, patented jointly, 850 acres of land in Surry County, Virginia. This raises the question as to why the land was purchased by the two of them. Capt. William Cockerham married Anne Spencer, the daughter of William Spencer and in 1656 he obtained a grant of 1250 acres in Surry County, 1100 acres of the said tract were due to the said Cockerham as marrying the daughter of Mr. Spencer, to whom it was originally granted.

*Adventures of Purse and Person, by Jester

William Cockerham may have been married prior to his marriage to Anne Spencer, but this has not been proven. He was the father of a daughter, who was married prior to 1669 to Charles Amry.

*Surry Co. Guardian Accounts, 1672-1750,p. 1.

He was also the father of two sons, William, Jr. (1659-1707) and Thomas (1665-1717)

*Adventures of Purse and Person, by Jester

It seems possible that Anne Spencer Cockerham died at the birth of this younger son.

*No Proof

Charles (1) BARHAM inherited land in England from his elder brother, Edward BARHAM, whose will was dated October 31, 1657 and was proved October 27, 1661. It is also noted that Katherine (Filmer) BARHAM was named as the Executrix of her sons will. It is here noted that just a year after that will was offered for probate, she made her will, dated November 1, 1662 and was proved December 19, 1662. She was living in the Parish of St. Andrew, High Holborn, London. Her younger son, Richard, who lived in London was named the Executor of her estate. The will was proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, London. Though it is known that she died testate, the Will has not been located. The foregoing data on the Barham family has been documented..

Bearing in mind the above notes on Capt. William COCKERHAM and Mr. CHARLES (1) BARHAM, it is here suggested that after the death of Charles (1) Barham's mother, that his sister, SUSAN (named in the Will of her brother, Edward) came to Virginia. She evidently paid her way or her brother, Charles (1) did so, as she was not given as a headright in any land transactions found in Virginia. She, it appears, by May 1666, had become the wife of Capt. Cockerham, whose wife Anne, had died abt. 1665. (No Proof). It has also been observed that the first mention of the wife of Charles (1) BARHAM was made in Surry records on February 2, 1666/67.(old and new calendars)

*Surry Co., Va. Book 1, p. 340

Note: Though the following item has not been proven, it looks as if Capt. Cockerham purchased the 850 acres of land jointly with Mr. BARHAM in right of Capt. Cockerham's wife, Susan (BARHAM) Cockerham. (???)

On the first of November, 1665, an indenture between John Corker, Gent., and Capt. William Cockerham stated that the latter was living in James City County.

*Surry Records, Book 1, p. 274

In ca 1669 (exact date not noted) Charles AMRY was made Guardian of the young sons of Capt. William Cockerham.

*Surry Co., Va. Book 1

Then on the 29th., 9br., 1672, the estate of Capt. Cockerham was presented by Charles (1) BARHAM and Robert Caulfield. "The Bill" being divided into three parts, there remains due the orphans - 13400. (Presumably tobacco or money)

*Surry Co. Book 2, p. 20

In 1680, Captain CHARLES (1) BARHAM sold to Joseph Rogers the 850 acres of land, which had been patented jointly by Capt. Cockerham and Mr. Charles (1) BARHAM in May 1666.

*Cavaliers and Pioneers by Nugent, Vol. 2, p. 562

In 1683, the patent was recorded, which stated that the land was the same as mentioned above and it was solely possessed by CAPTAIN BARHAM by survivorship.

*Cavaliers and Pioneers by Nugent, Vol. 2, p. 256

Note: Knowing that Capt. Cockerham did have two living sons, the question arose as to why Captain CHARLES (1) BARHAM was the sole owner of the land. The logical answer to this question is that the part of the land bought by Capt. Cockerham was in the right of his wife, who was possibly deceased prior to her brother, Captain CHARLES (1) BARHAM. It is well to remember that Capt. Cockerham had much land, which he had as marrying his first wife, and that land would have been heired by the sons.

1666/7, February 2 - This indenture made the 2 day of Feb. 1666. These present witnesseth that I, Dorothy Thorne, is to serve Chas. BARHAM and his wife til next Christmas some six years and the said BARHAM and his wife is to find her sufficient lodging and vittuals and not put her into the ground and the mortar, but to teach her to read and sew and to give her a cotton suite and a preneston (?)

To Mr. BARHAM, his daughter's Elizabeth and Priscilla BARHAM, one cow apiece.

Witnesses: George Bell, Robert Jones.

*Isle of Wight Book 1, p. 98

NOTE: John Prime made a deposition June 9, 1688 giving his age as 22. (IOW Book 2, p. 280) He apparantly was born in 1665/6 and was 5 or 6 years old when William Ridley's Will was made.

NOTE2: It has been suggested that William RIDLEY was the brother of Elizabeth, the wife of Captain CHARLES (1) BARHAM. So far as is known, his Will is the basis for this assumption, and even though no proof has been found, several genealogists have concluded that Elizabeth was the daughter of PETER RIDLEY and the sister of WILLIAM RIDLEY.

Charles Barham Jr., of Charlottesville, Virginia was searching for his ancestors and in 1958, made an abstract copy of all official records that he had found in his research. He was not completely convinced that Elizabeth's father was a RIDLEY.

Robert Young Barham published a book on his family heritage in 1963. He traces his family back to the youngest son of Captain CHARLES (1) BARHAM. He stated in that publication that Elizabeth was probably the daughter of PETER RIDLEY.

An abstract of the Will of William RIDLEY has been given. It tends to prove that there was a relationship between him and the family of Captain CHARLES (1) BARHAM. Though he names Capt. BARHAM as the Executor of his estate and leaves bequests to the two daughters of Charles (1) BARHAM, he does not denote any relationship.

Though not named in the records along with Captain CHARLES (1) BARHAM, it is more than likely that there was a definite relationship between the TUKE family and the BARHAM family. William TUKE was the son of James TUKE, who came to Virginia in 1621 in the "GEORGE". James TUKE also had a son, Thomas TUKE, who was named as overseer of William RIDLEY'S Will. Charles (1) BARHAM'S great, great grandmother was Mary TUKE, before her marriage to Sir Reginald SCOTT. Mary TUKE was the daughter of Sir Bryan TUKE, secretary to Cardinal Wolsey.

As this is so, the words that could not be made out are denoted as ............ Where the words were more or less clear, they have been transcribed as they were thought to be.

In the NAME of GOD, AMEN - I, George WATKINS, of the Parish of Lawnes Creek in the County of Surry in Virginia, being at present sick and weak in body, but of sound and perfect mind and memory, all laud and praise be given to GOD for ye same, and considering of my self and frailty of mankind.............-............

*Surry County Book 2, Part 1, 1671 - 1684, p. 35 - 36

A concerted study of Surry County records did not reveal the names of the parents of Capt. George Watkins. Though there were those of the same surname, it does not necessarily follow that he was a son of the same. If he belonged to the family of JOHN WATKINS, who died in 1652, it would seem that he would have included his brothers in his Will. Instead the Will names his well beloved cousin, CHRISTOPHER WATKINS of London. This points to the fact that GEORGE WATKINS may have been related through ELIZABETH, the wife of CAPTAIN CHARLES BARHAM.

Elizabeth Ridley may have been an Aunt of Elizabeth Prime. Charles (2) Barham was called cousin to Geo. Watkins.

It is possible that the relationship between Capt. Charles (1) BARHAM and Capt. George WATKINS was by marriage. It is known that William RIDLEY left the lease on his land in Isle of Wight County to Capt. BARHAM for the term of the lease. Capt. BARHAM was to raise John PRIME, the son of Edmund PRIME. It is also probable that Elizabeth PRIME was living in the home of her Aunt and Uncle at the time of her marriage to George.

1673 - Charles (2) BARHAM, the son of Captain Charles BARHAM and his wife, Elizabeth, was born prior to 1673 in Surry County, Virginia

He was named a cousin in the Will of Captain George Watkins, which was dated September 17, 1673 and proved September 20, 1673. Captain Charles BARHAM, the father of Charles (2) BARHAM was designated as "my loving uncle" in the Will. Captain Watkins left a bequest of 5 ewes and one ram to his cousin and 1000 pounds of tobacco to his uncle. He named his wife as executrix and his uncle as co-executor of his estate.

As far as has been found, Charles (2) BARHAM was not mentioned in any further official records in the counties south of the James River.

In 1680, his parents moved to James City County, where his father acquired land in Martin's Hundred. Captain BARHAM made his Will on July 5, 1682 and died in late 1683. A copy of the portion of Captain BARHAM'S Will, which dealt with his land in James City County which he bequeathed to his eldest son, Charles (2) BARHAM, as an entailed estate, was found in the Public Records Office in London, England.

The records in London stated that Charles (2) BARHAM entered the land, then sold it. Evidently, as he had sons of his own, he was of the opinion that the entail was no longer valid. The 1704 Quit Rent roll for James City County listed no land in the name of any BARHAM. It is not known when Charles (2) BARHAM died or where. Also there appear to be no records to show whom he was married, or if she survived him. It is known that Charles (3) BARHAM was his eldest son and heir, which indicates that there were other sons and possibly daughters.

By 1732, Charles (3) BARHAM had recovered the land in Martin's Hundred, James City County, which his father, Charles (2) BARHAM had heired as an entailed estate of his father, Captain Charles (1) BARHAM. At this time Charles (3) BARHAM was interested in having a Bill passed by the House of Burgesses to enable him to sell part of the said tract and buy other land in lieu of the land which he had inherited as the eldest son and heir of his father. He stated at the time that the woods and timber had been cut from the tract and that it had lost it's value. He also stated that he had an opportunity to buy other land in the same vicinity from which the timber had not been cut and which contained much woodland. He also said the entail, which had been part of the inheritance would be placed on the new land, which he proposed to purchase.

A record in the Public Records Office in London gave an account of the proposal of Charles (3) BARHAM. In 1732, the petition to the House of Burgesses in Virginia was admitted for consideration. The Bill was presented by Mr. William Harwood on Thursday, June 8, 1732. An Account, which appeared in "The Laws of Virginia" being a supplement to Hening's Statutes at Large 1700 - 1750, compiled by Waverly R. Winfrey, published in 1971, gives the description of the land which Charles (3) BARHAM intended to buy in lieu of the land he wished to sell.

Note: There is a Bible record in the Virginia State Archives in which it is shown that a John Smith was married to a NANCY BARROM. This raises the question as whether she was a BARHAM, whose name was given as an alternate spelling. The Will of John Smyth (Smith) left his land in new Kent, 500 acres to be divided between his two sons, John and Henry. No dates were given in the Bible Record for either John Smith or his wife, Nancy. However, the records show that they had a son, Lewis Smith, who was the father of John Smith, born October 15, 1757 and a son, Lewis born April 14, 1759. This would appear to have placed the date of birth in approximately the same generation as the other children of Charles (2) BARHAM of James City County, Virginia.

Elizabeth Mason, wife to Francis, and mother to Thos. Holt was the widow of Thomas Binns, Sr., who died in 1669 without a Will. As Mrs. Elizabeth Binns she patented 777 acres on October 18, 1669. (Pat. Book 6, p. 281) On May 6, 1701., as Elizabeth Mason, she deeded 388 ½ acres to Grandson, Francis Holt, and 388 ½ acres to Grandson, Francis Mason - "if he dies, to Grandson, Charles Binns." (Surry W&D Book 1694/1709, p. 225) Thus, Frances Mason Holt, first wife of Thomas Holt, was ½ sister to Thomas Binns (Jr).

1763 - In addition to Elizabeth BARHAM (see Will of Joseph Buck, 1732) there appears one other female BARHAM. She was shown with tithables in Yorkhampton Parish in 1763. This is the only time that her name was mentioned. It is thought, but not proven, that she was the wife of Thomas BARHAM who was found in the York County Records in March 1747 and November 1752. The two items in the York County Records infer that Thomas BARHAM was not a resident of York County. Martin's Hundred became a part of Yorkhampton Parish in 1712. By the 1782 land tax list for James City County as well as York County, neither Thomas or Jemima BARHAM were listed, which indicates they were deceased.

Note: There was also one Thomas BARHAM, who was a witness to the Will of Bennett Kerby in 1780. It has not been established who his parents were. There is a Thomas BARHAM, grandson to Bennett Kerby, but he appears to have been too young to have been a legal witness.

1763 - Benjamin BARHAM - died in 1763, intestate. However, his wife, Catherine (Moody) and his son, Moody BARHAM, and three daughters, Catherine, Elizabeth and Mary BARHAM have been proven by the Will of his father-in-law, Josiah Moody. Josiah Moody qualified to administer the estate of Benjamin BARHAM.
