Parham of Tisbury, Wiltshire, UK - early 1600's
I am researching the Parham line of Tisbury. Most worked for the local land owners - the Bennetts of Pythouse.
I have traced the line back to Edmund Parham (1635) but am now stuck.
I have also found a James Parham 'of Stratford' that 'married' Anne Bennett(DOB1589)of Pythouse and had three children - Joanne, Margaret and Walter around 1615 to 1620. Has anyone any more details?
This James Parham seems to have no more history....
It is possible that this is the same James Parham that appears in the US on onoe of the early Pilgrim ships in approx 1622, marries Francis Holmes (DOB 1602) in VA, US in 1624 and has Matthew Parham in 1625....these are the FIRST Parhams in the US!
Please let me know anything you have of this period.
Thanks and Regards
