  Research Notes:

It is possible that William was 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 1721 in Speldhurst Kent, about 16 miles north of Etchingham.

Another William Barham was christened in 1721 in Salehurst which is 4.2 miles from Etchingham, son of William Barham and Mary Stace; however, at least one secondary source 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).

  Marriage Information:

William married Mary Wenbon on 28 Apr 1747 in Etchingham, Sussex, England.
