Nicholas BARHAM (c1585-1652)

and Mary BARHAM (c1580-1673)

 

Nicholas Barham and Mary Barham were my 10x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by licence on 24 July 1615 at St. Clement's in Hastings, Sussex.  At the time Mary was a widow.  She had first married John Holland the younger of Lamberhurst on 20 June 1603 in Tonbridge, Kent.  Nicholas and Mary's marriage licence was dated 19 July 1615 and Thomas Mercer a tanner of Wadhurst provided surety.  On the same day a marriage licence was issued to Thomas Mercer and Mary Barham, to which Nicholas Barham a yeoman of Wadhurst provided surety.

Nicholas Barham was the son of John Barham and Annes Markwick.  I would guess that he was born in the 1580's.  His will was dated 14 November 1652 and proved on 21 May 1653, in which he left 5 to the poor of Wadhurst.  He also mentioned his grandchildren Elizabeth Elliott (1649-1735), Ann Elliott (1650-?) and Constance Elliott (1652-?) children of his daughter Ann, and John Barham (1642-1724) and Elizabeth Barham (1649-?) children of his daughter Elizabeth.  He appointed his son John Barham as the sole executor.  Also mentioned were son-in-laws William Parkham of Salehurst and David Holland of Wadhurst.  The witnesses to his will were Nicholas Saunders, William Hendley, George Courthope and ? Dyne (possibly Gregory Dyne who married Nicholas's widowed daughter Elizabeth on 20 January 1652/3).  By the terms of his maternal grandfather's 1592 will, Gregory Markwick, Nicholas was to receive a legacy of forty shillings.  On 17 May 1605 he was appointed a juror on the case of a drowned child.  On 8 April 1610 he was called upon, with others, to value the estate of William Kitchenham who had drowned himself in John Barham's pit.

Mary Barham was the daughter of John Barham (c1525-c1585) and Mary Courthope.  She was mentioned in her husband's will as "Marie my loving wife".  She was buried on 22 August 1673 as Mary old widow of Nicholas Barham of Butts.
