Parham of Tisbury, Wiltshire, UK - early 1600's

Journal by johnparham

Hi,
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

Not far off mine. I am searching the Parhams who dropped briefly through Sutton Veny and Ebbesbourne waki in the 18th and early 19th century.
Hope you know them

Hi Catherine, Thanks for the comment. Well, Ebbesborne Wake Parhams I am aware of, but Sutton Veney I don't think I am. Wish there was an easy way to 'search POB' on RootsWeb or Genes Reunited....

The Parhams seem to be consolidatin better now.They were mostly in the Ebble and Wyley valleys around broad Chalk.In recent years they produced Arthur Parham, suffragan bishop of Reading, Admiral Sir Frederich Parham and Major General Jack Parham.
They are still increasing. The only problem is the earlier than 1700 people. Some were from Semley
