Compiler's 6 x great-grandfather
William is shown here, tentatively, as a son of Robert Barham (b.c. 1691) and Anne Bennet (married 25 Apr 1717 in Etchingham, Sussex), although no christening record has been found yet for a son William. However, note that William's second eldest son was called Robert (chr. 26 Nov 1749 in Etchingham; bur. there 14 May 1760), and that the first christening for a child of Robert Barham and Anne Bennet wasn't until 1720 (Mary on 18 Sep 1720, in Etchingham).
A number of secondary sources show William as a son of Nicholas and Ursula Barham, born/christened in Speldhurst Kent in 1721. Nicholas Barham in turn is said to have been born in Wadhurst Sussex. Nicholas and Ursula do not figure as names among the known descendants of William Barham and Mary Wenbon.
Another William Barham was christened in 1721 in Salehurst, son of William Barham and Mary Stace, although an Ancestral File at familysearch.org shows him having married Sarah Thomas in 1749 in Lewes, which may or may not be correct.
William Barham died aged 74 years (burial record).
William married Mary WENBON on 28 Apr 1747 in Etchingham, Sussex, England.
