and Annes MARKWICK (c1565-?)
and Annes Markwick
were my 11x Great Grandparents. They may have married before 1590.
was the eldest son of
Nicholas Barham (c1533-bef 1599). I would guess that he was born
in the 1550's or 1560's. He was named as an overseer in the 1592 will
of his father-in-law,
Gregorie Marckwyck. I believe he was the John Barham of
Butts mentioned in the will of
Nicholas Fowle, dated 24 October 1599.
Annes Markwick or Annis
Markwick, was the daughter of
and possibly Elinor. In her father's
will of 14 July 1592 she was mentioned as Annes wife of John
Barham and Agnes Markwick had 2 known children:
my 10x Great Grandfather, married
Barham in 1615. (They have their own page.)
Dorothee Barham was named in her maternal grandfather's will, by
which she was to receive forty shillings.
Did John and Agnes also have a daughter named
Mary Barham? If so then she was most probably born after 1592. A marriage licence dated 19 July 1615 was isssued
to Thomas Mercer and Mary Barham, to which Nicholas
Barham a yeoman of Wadhurst acted as a sponsor. On the same day a
marriage licence was issued to Nicholas Barham and Mary Hollands,
widow, to which Thomas Mercer a tanner of Wadhurst was a
sponsor. Thomas and Mary, like Nicholas and Mary, married on 24 July
1615 at St. Clements in Hastings, Sussex. Thomas may have previously
married Mary Longley on 11 May 1607 in Wadhurst.
