WHO IS DANIEL MARKHAM

  • IT IS DIFFICULT TO CONCLUDE DANIEL MARKHAM OF COTHAM UNTIL HE CAN BE FOUND IN ANY PRIMARY TEXT. HE MUST BE THERE. HOWEVER, SAYING THAT, DO NOT CONFUSE HIM WITH ANY OTHER DANIEL MARKHAM.
  • AN ESSAY AND EXTENSIVE INSIGHT INTO THE MUCH CONFUSED DANIEL MARKHAM, TO CLARIFY THE VAST PERPETUATION OF MISINFORMATION, AND MANY OTHER THINGS MISLEADING.
  • Special Interest derived from trying to find the parentage of Daniel Markham, Ludimagister.
  • Written and Compiled by Tom Watson.[1]

DANIEL MARKHAM TABLE

  • NOTE: Use this table to differentiate the separate persons when going through wrong, confused, somewhat corrected genealogy, book values, visitations, and other sources. This table is in reference or relation to Daniel Markham, Ludimagister (b:c.1655) being the possible noble Markham whose parentage is still sought.
  • Daniel Markham, b:c.1655, of London and School Master (Ludimagister) Ireland, m. Elizabeth Fennell, grandfather to Dr. William Markham, D.D., Archbishop of York. NOT MARCON. DNA: R1. PARENTAGE: UNRESOLVED. Noble Markham: Possibly. NOTE: His birth date could span 1653-70.
  • Daniel Markham, b:c.1600, son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham. No primary record of him found by myself, he must exist. UNLIKELY BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE he is the father of the Daniel Markham (Ludimagister) above. Maybe he did NOT survive childhood, since he is not mentioned in a 1607 record where I feel he should be mentioned, if no other place, if he was alive. Noble Markham: Yes.
  • Daniel Markham 1653-1690 of Plumstead Magna, near Norwich, Norfolk. Single, aged 37 years when he wrote his will in 1690, signed with an 'X', mentions Anne Rounce. Noble Markham: Unknown/Maybe/Unlinked.
  • Daniel Markham b:1671 of Plumstead Magna, near Norwich, Norfolk. Unknown/Unconfirmed son of Matthew Markham.
  • Deacon Daniel Markham bp:1641, Earls Colne, Essex, and of New England. Parents: James Markham and Martha Collins. Daniel Markham is NOT the son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham. DNA: I2a. UNRELATED.
  • Daniel Markham, Sailor on the HMS Orford, d:1703-1705. No known spouse/offspring mentioned in his will. Mother: Mary Hawkins of St. Andrews, Holborn, London. Noble Markham: Unknown/Possibly.
  • All Markall/Markale/Marcon about Norwich, Norfolk: JUST LEAVE IT.

THE PROBLEMATIC DANIEL MARKHAM AND OTHERS

  • Before I continue, it must be said, that the Markham books are excellent, well presented, and contain a vast knowledge, and effort of the writers and helpers. The Rev. David Frederick Markham died soon after 'A History of the Markham Family' was printed, and Sir Clements Robert Markham died not long after 'Markham Memorials' was printed. Amongst other things, there were THREE MAIN BASIC PROBLEMS in their research and printed books:
  • They could never find Daniel Markham in Ireland from ANY primary reference themselves for his parentage, only from other incorrect genealogies, etc. The Kinsale baptismal records only mention him as Lt. Markham.
  • They just simply never found Major William Markham's wife, she is still a mystery. Her being Elizabeth Markham so far seems fictitious, and Catherine Markham aka 'Melœna' needs to be checked out further.
  • 1783: Archbishop Markham recorded the fact, in the Heralds' College, that he was descended from the Markhams of Cotham. His descendants WROTE privately that Major William Markham was POSITIVE on his descent from Cotham. The SAID descent from memory by Major William Markham that his grandfather is Daniel Markham son of Sir Robert Markham, although possible, seems unlikely to impossible, and just does NOT work from primary research yet.
  • In the early days of internet genealogy, it became quickly apparent that as soon as any name of Daniel Markham was mentioned, there was a problem, and much uncertainty as to who they all were. Sure, not a lot was known, and what was known, was all mixed up. It was undertaken to sort this out. A huge perpetuation of misinformation has plagued Markham trees endlessly, primarily from incorrect Markham books and other genealogies. This guide is a result of trying to follow book value from an actual research perspective, where many things just do not make sense, or according to primary text where available, or just the simple reading of those books. I am not against Daniel Markham (Ludimagister) being a son of Daniel Markham son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham. IT COULD BE IMPOSSIBLE. Each Daniel Markham of concern in the chart was a separate living person, and have been differentiated one from the other as far as need be, and I have not fully ended off the Markham of Norwich research either, not that I had to for the original purpose of what was being sought long ago. The primary intention was to answer the question, and then identify and separate each living individual. A single fact can do this. There was never any major intention to complete the all trees in the Markham Table. Hence, some things have not been answered outside the scope of immediate question. There are many versions of the noble Markham tree loosely placed out there.
  • The term noble Markham pertains to those Markham families that extended from East and West Markham in Nottinghamshire that took on their surname from those places, and noted for Valour and being Famous throughout Antiquity. From East and West Markham, Notts, eastward into Lincolnshire, was a primary residence region for a section of this family. Lincolnshire seems by far, to hold the greatest number of persons with surname Markham, essentially being the Home of the surname Markham by sheer number. Most Markham of Lincolnshire are not noble Markham as such, and have different DNA. Very few known noble Markham lines have survived.

  • MARKHAM MEMORIALS, VOL. II, PG. 193: UNCONNECTED MARKHAMS. NORWICH MARKALES OR MARCONS (LATTERLY CALLING THEMSELVES MARKHAM) [67]
  • There was a family of worsted weavers at Norwich from 1518 to 1700 called Markale or Marchale. Latterly they began to spell the name Marcon, and finally Markham. John Marchale, worsted weaver, was admitted to freedom in 1518. His son, Daniel Markale, was a grocer, admitted to the freedom of the city of Norwich, 1585. He had a son named Daniel Marcon, admitted to freedom 1615, who was a worsted weaver. Matthew Marcon, son of Daniel, was born in 1606, and was also a worsted weaver. He was Alderman of Norwich 1662, and Mayor in the same year. He had property in Plumstead Magna and Thorpe. His first wife was Mary Peckover, and his second was Anne, probably a daughter of Charles George Cocke of Norwich. He died in January 1677, and his wife Anne in 1683. The children of Matthew Marcon, who latterly called himself Markham, Mayor of Norwich (As sheriff in 1658 he signed himself Marcon. His sons called themselves Markham.), were:
1. Matthew, in Holy Orders, Minister of Plumstead Magna. He died in 1676. By his wife Barbara, who died in 1686, he had:
1. Matthew, born 1670; died 1671.
2. Daniel, born 1671.
3. John, born and died 1675.
4. Ann, married Edmund Jermy.
5. Martha.
6. Barbara, married John Holdick.
2. Martha, died young. Martha Marcon. Unrelated.[58][68]
3. Francis, died young. Francis Marcon. Unrelated.[59][69]
4. Charles, died young. Unknown/Unlinked.
5. Daniel, born 1640; died 1650. Unknown Source/Unlinked.
6. Daniel, born 1653; died 1690, aged 37, leaving his estate to his friend Ann Rounce. He signed his will with a 'X': Markham. Unlinked/Possible Relative.
7. Elizabeth, married Peter Coppin, Rector of Plumstead: Related.
  • Besides Daniel Markale the grocer there were two other sons of the first John Marchale (1518) who had children: 1) Walter Marchale (1562), who had two sons, Walter (1598) and Robert. Walter had a son, Daniel Marcall, a worsted weaver. Robert (died 1622) had a son Robert. 2) John Marcall, born 1543, a worsted weaver; died before 1585. He married Margaret; secondly Spencer Peterson. He had: Robert. Nicholas. Walter. John (1622), who had three sons, John (1646), Robert, and Thomas.
  • But these never took the name of Marcon or Markham. The Mayor also had two uncles, William (born 1590) and Thomas, and the latter had three sons, Henry, Thomas, and Robert, all called MARCON. The family is extinct as regards descendants of the Mayor, Matthew Marcon; but the name of Marcon still occurs in Norfolk.
  • COMMENTARY: I don't know if Markale or Marchale began to spell their name Marcon (Out of the scope and range of my interest, and irrelevant to the cause.), but Matthew Marcon is not Matthew Markham. To go through piece by piece:
  • Matthew Marcon, son of Daniel, was born in 1606, and was also a worsted weaver: In simple terms, the author did not know of Matthew Markham, Armiger, of Thorpe St. Andrew, father of Clerk, Vicar Matthew Markham.
  • He was Alderman of Norwich 1662, and Mayor in the same year: Applies to Matthew Markham, Armiger, being appointed (1662: Alderman) and (1665: Mayor). I am not clear who the (1658: Sheriff) was.
  • 1658: Mayor: Rog. Mingay. Sheriffs: Roger Hawys/Hawes, Math. Marcon:[60][70][61][71][62][72] Math. Marcon maybe Sheriff ?. (John Hawes and Mrs Mary Marcon, m:1629-04-19, St. George Colegate, Norfolk). The Hawes family seems to be related to the Marcon family as it is.
  • 1665: Mayor: Matthew Marcon. Sheriffs: James Denew. F. Norris, ob, John Richer.[63][73][64][74] NOTE: This is the problem, should read: Matthew Markham.
  • He had property in Plumstead Magna and Thorpe: Applies to and/or Vicar Matthew Markham and >Matthew Markham, Armiger.
  • His first wife was Mary Peckover: Applies to Matthew Marcon.
  • and his second was Anne, probably a daughter of Charles George Cocke of Norwich. He died in January 1677, and his wife Anne in 1683: Not researched.
  • Death dates apply to Matthew Markham (d:1676) and his wife Barbara Calthorp//Whitaker/Markham (d:1683-86). Will of Barbara Markham, of Plumstead, widow 1683-1686 PRDC.[75]
  • The children of Matthew Marcon, who latterly called himself Markham, Mayor of Norwich (As sheriff in 1658 he signed himself Marcon. His sons called themselves Markham.): The children of Matthew Marcon are COMBINED with that of Matthew Markham (1665: Mayor) and someone else. Just stick to each SURNAME, that will separate things in primary record for the most part. Matthew Marcon 'as sheriff in 1658 he signed himself Marcon': I do not know what he signed, book value only here.
  • His sons called themselves Markham: No, Matthew Marcon's sons are all Marcon.
  • Matthew Markham was lastly a clerk of Plumstead Magna. His sister married the rector there, and seems his mother later resided and re-married there too (??).
  • But these never took the name of Marcon or Markham. The Mayor also had two uncles, William (born 1590) and Thomas, and the latter had three sons, Henry, Thomas, and Robert, all called Marcon. The family is extinct as regards descendants of the Mayor, Matthew Marcon; but the name of Marcon still occurs in Norfolk: For Markham research, not applicable, leave it.
  • MARKHAM MEMORIALS, VOL. I, PG. 165 (CHAPTER I): WILLIAM MARKHAM was the eldest son of Daniel, and grandson of Daniel, the third son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham. His mother was Elizabeth, daughter of Captain Fennel of Cappagh, by Frances, daughter of General Fleetwood:[76] NOTE: Incorrect as further shown.
  • MARKHAM MEMORIALS, VOL. I, PG. 165 (CHAPTER I): William was born at Kilkenny, where his father had settled, in 1686, and was educated at a school there by Dr. Andrews, an old Westminster, who had been brought over to Ireland by the Duke of Ormond. At the age of 20, on December 23, 1706, 'William Markham, son of Daniel Markham an officer in the army', was entered as a student of Trinity College, Dublin.[77][65][78]
  • The author has read or changed the age to 20 years. The entry never said all of this. It more correctly says:
  • 1706-12-23: Alumni Dublinenses: MARKHAM, WILLIAM, Siz., Dec. 23, 1706, aged 19; s. of Daniel, Ludimagister; (born/residence) nr. Limerick.[66][79] NOTE: (1706-19=1687). I still have a question on what his actual age is (14/19 ?).
  • The author has mixed two references, the Dublin University entry and the Kinsale Kilkenny baptismal entries. Above is the correct entry. He is the son of Daniel Markham Ludimagister, not officer (1706). From the correct entry, the born/residence means he was residing 'nr. Limerick', probably with his father.
  • 1705-05-12: Markham, William. 14 years. Son of Daniel Markham, Ludimagister. (1705-14=1691). 1702/3-02-22: Markham, Enoch. 8 years. (1703-8=1695).[67][80] NOTE: William's age might read 14, 19 or 20 ?, and can be left at 1686. Either way, that is him. Enoch's age will be based on that record.
  • MARKHAM MEMORIALS, VOL. I, PG. 167 (CHAPTER I):[81] 'Melœna' was married to Lieutenant Markham on September 25, 1716. (She was Catherine, daughter of James Markham). He had the appointment of barrack-master at Kinsale during the sixteen years of his married life. To increase his small income he kept a school from 1721 for a few years. He was an excellent classical scholar. His three sons were born at Kinsale. Entered in Kinsale Parish Register as children of Lt. Markham.
  • 1. William Markham of Creaton in Northamptonshire (1605) had two sons, Gregory, ancestor of the Markhams of Northampton, and Thomas, who married a Miss McCarthy of Kinsale and settled there, retaining property at Creaton. His son William died 1663, leaving two sons, John and James Markham of Kinsale. James married Honor ... He made his will in 1704, leaving £300 to his daughter Catherine, married to Lt. William Markham. James left his estate at Creaton to his wife for her life, then to his son William. Property, in High and Low Fisher's Street (Kinsale) to his wife, then to second son James.
  • Entered in Kinsale Parish Register as children of Lt. Markham:
1. William, born in 1719. Baptized at Kinsale April 9, 1719.
2. George, born in 1723. Baptized at Kinsale August 15, 1723.
3. Enoch, born in May 1727.
4. Elizabeth, born in 1721. Baptized at Kinsale May 28, 1721. Died young.
  • IMPORTANT: There are TWO Lt. Markham in Kinsale at this time. One is the baptismal record 1719 for William Markham (Archbishop) son of Lt. Markham, the other a marriage record for Catherine Markham to Lt. Markham. It is more probable that Catherine Markham married a close relative from her OWN Markham cousins surely, they are Markham of Northamptonshire fame. Daniel Markham's offspring don't have near cousins in Kinsale, they only have brothers and maybe a sister. The other Markham line has been there long enough to marry into cousins. You have the WRONG marriage assigned (I am open to being wrong on this point).
  • Catherine, married to Lt. William Markham: Even worse, the author inserts the unknown Lt. Markham first name to be William. This causes dual problems in the other tree if that name is not William.
  • SEPTEMBER 25, 1716: This is the same marriage date used for both Elizabeth daughter of George Markham of Ollerton/Worksop Lodge, and for Catherine daughter of James Markham in Kinsale.
  • A MEMOIR OF ARCHBISHOP MARKHAM. CHAPTER I, PG. 2-3:[68][82][83] Returning home, he married his distant cousin Elizabeth, said to have been the daughter of George Markham, of Worksop Lodge, on September 25, 1716. NOTE: Nobody really knows who she is. Does Elizabeth Markham exist ?.
  • THIS IS WHY I have placed Major William Markham's wife's name only as 'Melœna', probably a nickname, it is referenced from the poem he wrote of her in his pocket book, she is not Catherine Markham. Keeping in mind, if the author was so sure about other spouses assigned to Major William Markham, he would not have changed her to Catherine Markham, from his previous book 'A Memoir of Archbishop Markham' where she is said to be Elizabeth, daughter of George Markham of Ollerton, maybe true, or fictitious, to fill in the gap. Nobody really knows who his wife is so far.
  • He knows of Daniel Markham and Elizabeth Fennell, from a somewhat incorrect record in the British archives, of whom he further identifies incorrectly (Norwich/Marcon/Other). Then his son Sir Clements Robert Markham publishes his 'Markham Memorials' with updates and corrections. On both points just mentioned (1+2), he still identifies both sections there incorrectly, and introduces a marriage to Catherine Markham, and leaves Daniel Markham hanging somewhere between Norwich and Lynn, when he is actually in Ireland. There are Markham in Lynn.

  • MARKHAM MEMORIALS, VOL. I, PG. 182:[85] Colonel Enoch Markham died on December 25, 1800, aged 73. On January 2, 1801, he was buried, with his father and brothers, in the north cloister of Westminster Abbey and, in compliance with his last dying request, his body was wrapped in the colours of the 112th Regiment, which he had raised. He was never married. By his will, dated February 11, 1791, he left Mary and Joyce Parry the price of £300 and £150 three per cent. stock respectively. The residue was placed in trust to his executors, being his two brothers, to invest and pay an annuity of £70 a year to Anne Bemont, alias Markham, and £30 a year to Anne Taylor. The rest to the Archbishop's children. NOTE: Enoch Markham m:1782-02-10 at St. Leonards, Shoreditch, London, to Ann Bormont.[69][86]

  • Elizabeth Fennell: A SHAW genealogy was written and published in Burke's Peerage: Oliver Cromwell's daughter Bridget married General Fleetwood. Their daughter Frances married Captain Fennell of Cappoquin (co. Waterford). Their daughter Elizabeth married Daniel Markham. Their granddaughter (Mary Markham) married Robert Shaw.[75][92] NOTE: Nobody really knows what this is based on, and I mean nobody. For one, Mary Markham, bp:1713-01-26, Kilkenny, is the daughter (As I understand it to be) of Bernard Markham of Fanningstown, near Piltown, Kilkenny, and Rebecca Briscoe. Mary Markham married Robert Shaw of Sandpits, Kilkenny (Apparently the ancestor of the famous author George Bernard Shaw). Bernard Markham's parents possibly William Markham and Margrett Bernard. Bernard Markham had a son John Markham, bp:1710-03-05, Fiddown, Kilkenny, d:1770-02, Chesterfield Co., VA Colony. Bernard Markham's lineage is currently separate to the Archbishop line, his DNA unknown to me. Then, the Captain Fennell of Cappoquin (Waterford) above mentioned, is so far, unconnected to Robert Fenell of Ballymoryhy (Limerick). Whether they are related, or closely related, or not, I am unable to say (2017-03). Wikipedia: George Bernard Shaw.[76][93] Simply, Bernard Markham is NOT son of Daniel Markham, Ludimagister.
  • Shaw genealogy says: Robert Shaw of Kilkenny, Esq., m. a sister of William Markham, late Archbishop of York, and had issue by her six sons, William, Bernard, John, Thomas, Robert and George:[77][94] What sister ?. The Archbishop's sister Elizabeth Markham is said to have died young. Then, this other line of Markham around Kilkenny etc., would intermarry between their line of Markham, usually. Then, Robert Shaw of Kilkenny has a son named Bernard. This is not the Archbishop line.
  • THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE (1849). PG. 541: His father was the son of Robert Shaw, esq. of Kilkenny, by Miss Markham, sister of the Archbishop of York.[95] NOTE: Incorrect.

  • Frances Fleetwood married Captain Fennell of Cappoquin (Waterford). Their daughter Elizabeth: This is incorrect and can now be proved from my research. Elizabeth Fennell's mother is Isabella Fennell, who, on her first name alone, then no other indication of any half offspring, Isabella Fennell is NOT named Francis.
  • Fleetwood House Stoke Newington 4th S. ix. 296, 362.)- Part xl. of the Herald[78][97][98] and contains under title 'Genealogy of Markhams' a masterly display of research, and impartiality; and the author, in recording Daniel Markham baptized 1653, adds - 'He married a daughter of Fennel by Frances, asserted to have been daughter of Fleetwood and his wife Bridget, daughter of Cromwell'; while Burke, an equally careful author, in Land Gent. under title 'Markham' records of the same Daniel Markham- 'He married Elizabeth daughter of Captain Fennel, by Frances his wife, a daughter (mind not asserted to have been, but in positive terms a daughter) of Fleetwood and grand-daughter, through her mother, of Cromwell'. Now, as 'N. & Q.' has palpably the house of Fleetwood in its two senses completely on the anvil, the present seems the happy season for inviting the settlement of the question whether Fleetwood had, or had not, by Bridget Cromwell, a daughter Frances, who married Fennel. John Pike. NOTE: (mind not asserted to have been, but in positive terms a daughter): If that isn't confusing English. What he really means is, she is just somebody's daughter.

Cappagh (Limerick) is a lot closer to the truth. I have mapped out several places I could find that were nearby mentioned to Robert Fenell in the Irish 1659 census, as it is termed. Starting at Cappagh (Limerick), going down, slightly around and back up: Cappagh - Rathkeale - Frankfort - Castletown - Charleville - Flemingstown - Bruree - Granagh - Kilmacow - Croagh - Cappagh. It will be in or about here somewhere, maybe slightly outside of that loop, that Ballymoryhy (1659)/Ballymoreely (1710) existed.
  • FAMILIÆ MINORUM GENTIUM, BY JOHN WILLIAM CLAY, 1895. VOL. III, PG. 969: MS 413:[86][106][87][107][--][108] Thoroton (Notts, i., 344) says that Francis Markham collected a history of his own family, which Francis was son of Robert by Mary Leke his wife (i.e. Daniel Markham's uncle). This history I have seen, & the pedigree p. 412 is a copy of his pedigree with the addition of the Ollerton branch. It was lent to me (i.e. a copy of it made by himself) by Lord Arundell in 1831. It is not so critical as might be wished & is imperfect towards the end. All that is valuable is here copied. The Archbishop of York's family is from a pedigree supplied by the family to Lord Arundel. It is added that information respecting Daniel Markham, who mar. Elizab. Fleming (Q. Fennel), & who resided in the county of Kilkenny, may be had from Peter Walsh, Esq., of Ballina, Carrick on Suir. It would appear that John, the son of Robert, was the only child born when Francis Markham compiled the pedigree, the 4 other sons Rob., Daniel, Alexr, & Philip, appear in Thoroton.

  • OLD INTERNET POST (BRIEF VERSION): Daniel Markham (the grandson of Robert Markham of Cotham, and his wife Anne Warburton) married Elizabeth Whitmore. This appears to contradict the statement that he married Elizabeth Whitmore repeated by a number of people on Rootsweb. I do not know on what evidence that is based.

The Markham in 'Familiæ Minorum Gentium' is based on information recorded by members of the Markham and related families.

  • MARKHAM MEMORIALS, VOL. I, PG. v-vi:[110] (Shortened Version): For three generations from the death of Sir Robert, the last possessor of Cotham, the heads of the family of Markham were without a permanently established home. Moreover one of them had the misfortune to lose all his family papers by shipwreck. In 1783 the Archbishop recorded the fact, in the Heralds' College, that he was descended from the Markhams of Cotham. In the same year his son George, afterwards Dean of York, commenced his researches by visiting Markham Church. In 1795 and 1796 George Markham resumed his researches into the history of the family with great diligence, ably assisted by his brother Osborne, who was a lawyer. George collected local information, while Osborne took down the evidence of the Archbishop, and of his brothers George and Enoch, as to what was known by Major William Markham, their father, who was born in 1686. Major Markham was POSITIVE that his GRANDFATHER was the son of the last Sir Robert Markham of Cotham, and that his name was Daniel. The testimony of a man as regards his grandfather, but not beyond, is accepted by the Heralds, and was always taken down by Dugdale in his visitations, as evidence. My grandfather was POSITIVE as to being the eldest, and that he was grandson to Daniel, son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham. (Letter from George Markham, Dean of York, to his brother Osborne Markham). On reference to Thoroton (2nd Ed.) it was found that Sir Robert Markham had a son named Daniel. This was CONCLUSIVE, for Thoroton (2nd Ed.) was not published at that time. George and Osborne continued their investigations, both by collecting information from their uncles, and by visiting localities, and studying Thoroton and other works. The result was a collection of papers, and the commencement of a memoir which, however, was never finished.2 About forty years after the date of the researches of George Markham (Dean of York), his nephew the Rev. David Frederick Markham, took up the subject. He visited the Markham sites, taking numerous notes and making sketches at Markham, Cotham, Laneham, Worksop Lodge, Newark, and Kirby Bellers; while the Hon. and Rev. Richard Cust, Rector of Belton, visited Sedgebrook for him, wrote a full account of the church, and had all the Markham entries extracted from the Registers in March 1836. Mr. Markham also received help from others, especially from old Mr. Bischof, an antiquary at Leeds. He personally made researches among the Harleian and Lansdowne Manuscripts, in the library at Lambeth, and in the Heralds' College. In 1852 he completed a history which, however, still needed much revision from the author; and he died in the following year. Unaware that it had not received the necessary revision, his son printed it for private circulation in 1854. Since this history by the Rev. David Frederick Markham was printed in 1854, his son, Clements Robert Markham, during a period of sixty years, has collected further information from numerous sources, which enables him to revise, correct, and make additions to his father's work. The most important corrections are the following:
  • The railing letter to Sir Thomas Stanhope was not written by old Sir John Markham in the time of Henry VII, but by a youth of the Sedgebrook line, young John Markham, surnamed 'Crouchback'.
  • The duel and other discreditable matters referred to Gervase Markham the author, really belong to a very different man, namely Gervase Markham of the Sedgebrook line.
  • The Daniel Markham who made a will in 1690 was not Daniel son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham, but a young native of Norwich entirely unconnected with the Markham family. Numerous corrections of less importance were necessary.
  • Daniel Markham 1653-1690 of Plumstead Magna, near Norwich, Norfolk. There was a SEPARATE family of Marcon about Norwich, and should not be confused with any Markham families there. One Matthew Marcon (Who was involved in local affairs there) and one Matthew Markham are recorded near each other, but ONLY at least the latter being Matthew Markham was a Mayor of Norwich, this fact is literally carved in stone. This point is continually and perpetually confused in books etc., and neither did the Markham family take on the surname of Marcon, or other surname, or vise versa.
  • Daniel Markham b:c.1600 son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham and Anne Warburton, and Daniel Markham of Plumstead near Norwich, Norfolk, were mixed together, and also combined with a separate Marcon family, in the book 'A History of the Markham Family' by the Rev. David Frederick Markham, who then stated Daniel Marcon (Entirely unrelated) changed his name to Daniel Markham, which is wrong, it never happened. These Daniel Markham here were separate persons, plus Daniel Marcon, were ALL incorrectly identified to be the Daniel Markham, the grandfather of Dr. William Markham, D.D., Archbishop of York, as also somewhat mentioned by Sir Clements Robert Markham, author of 'Markham Memorials', and much from my own research to sort them all out. This Daniel Markham's parents have not been found, but it is stated by his son Major William Markham that Daniel Markham's father was one Sir Robert Markham of Cotham. Neither author knew that Deacon Daniel Markham of New England came from Earls Colne, Essex. The Archbishop's grandfather Daniel Markham came from London and was later a schoolmaster (Ludimagister) and living with his wife Elizabeth Fennell 1708-10 in Ireland. Whilst this Markham family is currently (2016) not yet linked into the main noble Markham tree, it is assumed, but highly likely they are noble Markham. The authors of both aforementioned Markham books have only conveniently placed their Daniel Markham where they thought he might fit in best, and in the case of 'A History of the Markham Family', the author had the wrong Daniel Markham of Plumstead assigned, who as it is, never married, did not die aged 92 years old, but was aged 37 years when he wrote his will in 1690, and signed it with an 'X', mentions Anne Rounce.
  • DATES: Daniel Markham of Cotham (b:c.1600), when combined with Daniel Markham of Plumstead (d:1690), you have 1690-1600=90 years old. But, for Daniel Markham of Plumstead (d:1690) aet:37y: 1690-37=1653, which is correct. Then, you will find in several other genealogical writes published, the noble Daniel Markham (Ludimagister) to be b:1653, as in the article of the Daniel Markham, Sailor. I do not know exactly when Daniel Markham (Ludimagister) was born, maybe 1653-1670 or so. It can't be much before or after that range.
  • Daniel Markham (Ludimagister): His baptismal record has not been found. I am open to his father maybe NOT being a Daniel or Robert, but so far nothing. His parentage is highly sought.
  • I have in my own possession a family drawn tree, which is largely accurate, but also VERY inaccurate in some respects. The writer of near kin, wrote out what they could recall of her ascent lineage, but also knew of Sir Admiral John Markham, First Sea Lord, Admiral of the Blue, etc., and that we were of apparent kin, his position is clearly shown in that tree. A house burnt down, and all the family papers destroyed. No-one could really remember the lineage, and the famous Admiral simply added to the chart. Even an obituary then had 'son of Sir Joseph Markham of Hull' written. There was a Joseph Markham of Hull in the family, but he was never a 'Sir', and neither was he the father of the person being referred to in the obituary.
  • MARKHAM MEMORIALS, VOL. I, PG. 80 (CHAPTER XI):[111] The date of Robert Markham's death has not yet been ascertained. There is no record of any marriage or children. He might possibly have had a son Daniel who went to America in 1666. NOTE: This last sentence has caused quite a large misconception. He said might possibly, and used a date of 1666, both being incorrect suggestions. Deacon Daniel Markham is COMPLETELY UNRELATED, genetically or other, was in New England by 1655-10-23, and was bp:1641-06-22, Earls Colne, Essex, England. See the DEACON DANIEL MARKHAM section further on.
  • MARKHAM MEMORIALS, VOL. I, PG. 81-82 (CHAPTER XII):[112] Daniel Markham, the third son of Sir Robert Markham by Anne Warburton was born in about 1600. His effigy appears third on his mother's tomb at Cotham, and his name is recorded at the Herald's College. He entered into commercial pursuits, and is believed to have been settled at Norwich or Lynn during some part of his life. (There was a family named Markall at Norwich, which changed the name to Markham at about this time, and the name Daniel occurs among its members; but it has been ascertained that there was no connection.). All that is known of him was derived from the recollections of his grandson, Major William Markham, as related to his sons. It has not been ascertained whom Daniel Markham married. The marriage was in 1643/44, when parish registers were very carelessly kept. The name of his wife has hitherto eluded all the searches that have been made. She bore him a son who received the same name. (Daniel's grandson, Major William Markham, lost all the family papers in a shipwreck.). His father bound young Daniel apprentice to a merchant in London. But he was a youth of a high and proud spirit, and could not endure the worsted nightcap worn by the apprentices of those times, nor submit himself to the performance of menial services imposed upon apprentices by their masters. So he quarrelled with his father, who would never see him again, and went off to sea, as a volunteer under the Duke of York. (MS. formerly at Becca. Notes by the Dean of York. In one of the songs written by Major William Markham in a pocket-book at Becca these occur: 'My Sire a London prentice was, a Dublin scholar I, Led by one genius to the camp, our fortunes there to try.'). The time and place of the death of the elder Daniel have not yet been ascertained, but his death took place before 1669 (The date of his half-brother Philip's death. Thoroton says that all his brothers died before him.). Daniel Markham, only son of Daniel the third son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham and Anne Warburton, was born in about 1645. After serving with some distinction as a volunteer under the Duke of York, he received a commission in the army. On being disbanded, in Ireland, in 1686, he resided in the neighbourhood of Kilkenny, and appears to have kept a school there for some time with Dr. Andrewes, a Westminster scholar. He married a daughter of Captain Fennel of Cappagh by Frances, daughter of General Fleetwood, not by Bridget Cromwell but by his first wife.(2) There were portraits, at Becca, of Captain Fennel and of General Fleetwood, in oval frames.(3) Daniel Markham ended his days at the home of his wife's relations, in Ireland. Daniel Markham had four children by his wife, the daughter of Captain Fennel of Cappagh.
  • THE PLACE OF MISHAP. The chapter perpetuates some main errors, plus adds some new ones. The genealogy had its problems for what was 'known'. The primary concern is Sir Robert Markham of Cotham had a son Daniel Markham who had a son Daniel Markham that went to Ireland.
  • (2). General Fleetwood's first wife was Frances Smith, and very little is known of her children. In his will he mentions his son Smith Fleetwood and his daughter Carter. His daughter Frances, named after her mother, who married Captain Fennel, is not mentioned in his will. But he does not provide for any of his children in his will, they were all grown up and provided for. The will is dated June 10, 1689. General Fleetwood in the Pedigree at the Herald's College is said to have had no children by his second wife, Bridget Cromwell, the widow of Ireton. Colonel Chester (letter, November 2, 1880), however, found that Fleetwood had children by his second wife, but they died young.
  • (3). These portraits were in Archbishop Markham's house in South Audley Street, before they were taken to Becca. That of Captain Fennel is by John Riley (1646-91).
  • An interesting point, it makes things confusing. All I can say is this. The Archbishop had little recollection of his childhood in Ireland, and no record of this outside of story writing from latter Markham authors. Whether or not there is an actual or close link to Capt. Fennel to the Fennell family of Ballymoreely, I can not say. However, from the Irish 1659 census, and other research, there is clearly a contingent of Fennell south of Cappagh (Limerick), to which the Fennell family of Ballymoreely might relate. But since the Markham family thought they were related to Capt. Fennel (Ballygriffin, Cork/Cappoquin Castle, Waterford), as given in their books, it is understandable they bought portraits of perceived ancestors. Read more on Capt. Edmond Fennell of Ballygriffin, Cork, who connects to Cappoquin Castle, Waterford.[88][113]

  • Just about everything is mixed and wrong for this tree, and still connecting to Norwich or Lynn, the added Lynn just shows he can't find his ancestor. Now we have Markall changing their name to Markham. The other Daniel and Philip were sons of Sir Robert. As you can see, trying link into that Fennell-Fleetwood families doesn't work too well. No Markham family mentioned in the will of Gen. Fleetwood.
  • His father bound young Daniel apprentice to a merchant in London. Major William Markham in a pocket-book at Becca these occur: 'My Sire a London prentice was, a Dublin scholar I, Led by one genius to the camp, our fortunes there to try': There is actually a record for one Daniel Markham in London, but I can not say for sure if this him yet, and 1669 ?.
  • 1669: Daniel Markham began life as a London dyer apprentice, but did not actually join and continue the apprenticeship. This shortly after the Fire of London (1666). See: London Dyers Company Apprentices. NOTE: It is not confirmed this is THE Daniel Markham, it could be, 1669 ?.
  • 1660: Christopher Mason (The following were intended/or apprenticed under him): 1669: Daniel Markham, did not Join. 1661-68: Herald Brown, Dyer. 1660-67: Rowland Burghill, Dyer. 1668: Henry Burham, did not Join. 1668: Thomas Odling, did not Join. 1671: Edmund Whitshead, did not Join. 1664-71: Richard Carleton. 1668-75: Thomas Dafferne, Dyer. 1668-75: Nathaniel Johnson, Dyer. 1667: William Kempthorne, did not Join. 1662: John Naylor, did not Join. 1675-84: Christopher Peale. 1665: Edward Plummer, did not Join. 1674-82: Thomas Sandys. 1664: John Simond, did not Join.[91][116]
  • St. Andrew Holborn: Philip Markham 01-1604/5 chr. Robert. Speculation: An interesting one. Time line is quite fine. Is this Sir Robert Markham of Cotham, in London, aged c.44y ?. The record does not give the mother's first name (Winifred), or this would have been resolved already. The Philip Markham son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham, has no bp date in Cotham, said to d:1669 sp (Although maybe m. __ Saville).

  • I can not say if this is Sir Robert Markham of Cotham's (d:By 1616) second wife Winifred Markham (Thorold), or another Robert Markham, gent. (Noble Markham), maybe the latter. This might just be a marriage licence, not an actual marriage it seems, for the next entry only TWO DAYS later, is her marriage to Thomas Graveley, her surname still Markham, and one can only suspect the infant aged FOUR died between those two dates. Interesting to mention.

Robert, the second, was a very gallant officer who served under Sir John Burrough in the Palatinate, at the siege of Frankenthal, and at the Isle of Rhe, when he was wounded. The third, who was named Daniel1, had a son of the same name2 who was the son of Daniel, third son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham. MEMORANDUM OF INFORMATION TAKEN FROM DR. WILLIAM MARKHAM, BY SIR ISAAC HERD, ON NOVEMBER 18, 1783, IN THE HERALDS' COLLEGE: 'His Grace is the son of Major William Markham and grandson of Daniel Markham, who was also an officer in the army. The former was shipwrecked on an island between Halifax and the Isle of Sables, when he lost all his family papers. The Archbishop derives his descent from the Markhams of Cotham'.

  • 2 MEMORANDUM BY MAJOR WILLIAM MARKHAM: that his father was a volunteer in the fleet of James, Duke of York. After many vicissitudes in a long military life, he settled at Kilkenny and married a daughter of a Mr. Fennel of Cappagh. Their son, William Markham, father of the Archbishop, was educated by Dr. W. Andrewes, an Old Westminster who had been brought to Ireland by the Duke of Ormonde. William was entered of Trinity College, Dublin, at the age of twenty, in December, 1706. In 1711 he obtained an ensign's commission, and served under Stanhope in Spain. Returning home, he married his distant cousin Elizabeth, said to have been the daughter of George Markham, of Worksop Lodge, on September 25, 1716. Soon afterwards he obtained a barrack appointment at Kinsale.
  • NOTE: YOU SEE, STRICTLY SPEAKING, THIS IS A TWISTED STATEMENT. Is that what is says ?. The Archbishop gives his testimony/memorandum (1783), Major William Markham (d:1771) never gave any memorandum I know of.

  • 1677: This is the actual adapted text from the book by Robert Thoroton.
  • Major Markham was POSITIVE that his GRANDFATHER (Daniel Markham of Cotham) was the son of the last Sir Robert Markham of Cotham, and that his name was Daniel. The testimony of a man as regards his grandfather, but not beyond, is accepted by the Heralds, and was always taken down by Dugdale in his visitations, as evidence.[99][127][128]
  • MEANING: Major William Markham son of Daniel Markham (Ludimagister) son of Daniel Markham (Cotham) son of Sir Robert Markham (Cotham).
  • NOTE: YOU SEE, STRICTLY SPEAKING, THIS IS A TWISTED STATEMENT. MAJOR MARKHAM IS SAID TO HAVE BEEN POSITIVE ON WHAT HE APPARENTLY THOUGHT OR SAID, AND THIS STATEMENT GIVES THE IMPRESSION THAT MAJOR MARKHAM (D:1771) HIMSELF GAVE A WRITTEN TESTIMONY TO THE HERALDS, BUT NO, HE DID NOT. IN 1783 HIS SON ARCHBISHOP MARKHAM RECORDED THE FACT IN THE HERALDS' COLLEGE. THE TESTIMONY OF A MAN AS REGARDS HIS GRANDFATHER.... NO, ARCHBISHOP MARKHAM IS GIVING HIS TESTIMONY ON HIS GREAT-GRANDFATHER DANIEL MARKHAM OF COTHAM. THE RULE WAS BROKEN.
  • My grandfather (Major William Markham) was POSITIVE as to being the eldest, and that he was GRANDSON to Daniel, son of Sir Robert Markham of Cotham. (Letter from George Markham, Dean of York, to his brother Osborne Markham). NOTE: Major William Markham (dd:1771), George Markham bn:1763 (8yrs), Osborne Markham bn:1769 (3yrs). IT MEANS THE GRANDCHILDREN ARE STATING WHO THE GRANDFATHER OF THEIR GRANDFATHER IS.
  • I am not so POSITIVE. Sir Robert Markham of Cotham clearly exists, but from a primary research perspective, Daniel Markham's (Ludimagister) parents have NOT been found. This is where the tree currently STOPS. The line of the Archbishop has not actually connected into the main noble Markham tree that I am aware of, and not yet from my own research. Neither should this line of Markham be connected until further information can be found to do so.
  • It can be questioned if Major William Markham did actually KNOW who his grandfather was. For one, if he knew who his Markham grandfather was, why did he not tell us who his grandmother was ?. (Side Note: He should have just stated who his own wife was!). There are several possible reasons for all of this. Many genealogies have a problem trying to get back into England. This one is no different. Think about it. Daniel Markham seems to leave London and go to Ireland. He has a son Major William Markham born c.1686 in Ireland. How would Major William Markham KNOW his Markham grandparents (If they are back in England ?), he is born in Ireland, divorced from England as such, in another country separated by sea, and there till quite a late stage (c.1730), until he takes his son the Archbishop aged about 13 years old, back to London to be educated, by which time, Major William Markham's parents would all be dead. When in London, it is only the Archbishop's uncle Enoch there we know of, who seems to die 1739, and only 2 of Enoch's 8 offspring are known to have survived so far. The Archbishop had arms drawn up for himself, based on the noble Markham arms, but he is not actually connected into the noble tree, but is more than likely a noble Markham (Not proved). The Archbishop did not do much genealogy, the books are from his grandson and great-grandson. His grandson the Rev. David Frederick Markham, nearly 50 years later after the death of the Archbishop, wants to publish his book, and whilst researching, he finds out two main things: 1) He does not know who Major William Markham's wife is, his great-grandmother. 2) He knows the names of Daniel Markham and Elizabeth Fennell, from a somewhat incorrect record in the British archives, of whom he further identifies incorrectly to Norwich/Marcon/Other/Etc. His son Sir Clements Robert Markham publishes his book 'Markham Memorials' with updates and corrections. On both points just mentioned (1+2), he still identifies both sections there incorrectly, and introduces a marriage to Catherine Markham, and leaves Daniel Markham hanging somewhere between Norwich and Lynn. There are Markham in Lynn.
  • NOTE: Certainly about the 1600 level, to even just get mentioned in say a will, there are THREE CRITERIA: 1. You must be BORN. 2. You must be LIVING. 3. You must have a NAME. You do NOT even have to be ONE YEAR OLD.
  • MS 413:[100][129][101][130][--][131] Thoroton (Notts, i., 344) says that Francis Markham collected a history of his own family, which Francis was son of Robert by Mary Leke his wife. This history I have seen, & the pedigree p. 412 is a copy of his pedigree with the addition of the Ollerton branch. It was lent to me (i.e. a copy of it made by himself) by Lord Arundell in 1831. The Archbishop of York's family is from a pedigree supplied by the family to Lord Arundel. It would appear that John, the son of Robert, was the only child born when Francis Markham compiled the pedigree, the 4 other sons Rob., Daniel, Alexr, & Philip, appear in Thoroton. Their father Robert was an unthrift. Robert Markham of Cotham m. Ann, 1 w., dau. of Sir Geo. Warburton. They had: 1. John. 2. Robert. 3. Daniel*, a mercht in Norwich. 4. Alexr. 5. Philip. 6. Frances.

If you add un-researched or book value parents for him, one won't know of the PROBLEM and look for them. If Daniel Markham of Cotham did survive, it is somewhat possible, but unlikely he is the father of Daniel Markham, Ludimagister. NO DANIEL MARKHAM OF COTHAM.

  • HOW DOES DANIEL MARKHAM OF COTHAM GET HIS NAME INTO THE VISITATION OF NOTTINGHAMSHIRE 1569 AND 1614 (PRINTED BOOK), BEING SON OF SIR ROBERT MARKHAM OF COTHAM ('UNTHRIFT') ?.
  • 1569: Too early for Daniel Markham of Cotham to be born.
  • 1614: By now, Daniel Markham of Cotham should be heard of if living, but not. You will find his name in updated book versions of these Visitations though. Sir Clements Robert Markham is well aware of the problem, in fact, he tells us about it. Read carefully what he says:
  • In 1783 the Archbishop recorded the fact, in the Heralds' College, that he was descended from the Markhams of Cotham.... On reference to Thoroton (2nd Ed.) it was found that Sir Robert Markham had a son named Daniel. This was CONCLUSIVE, for Thoroton (2nd Ed.) was not published at that time.
  • 1677: The Antiquities of Nottinghamshire, Robert Thoroton (1623-1678). Published 1677 (1st Ed.), he died the following year. See Wikipedia: Robert Thoroton, Antiquarian (1623-78).[108][138] NOTE: Sons Rob., Daniel, Alexr, & Philip, APPEAR in Thoroton (1677). DANIEL MARKHAM OF COTHAM IS HERE. But this is also an update of the 1614 visitation. From 1677 onwards, Daniel Markham, Ludimagister, could have known of this book, a point not to be missed.
  • 1783: The Archbishop recorded the fact, in the Heralds' College, that he was descended from the Markhams of Cotham.[109][139] The Archbishop Markham Pedigree image is on this profile.
  • 1797: Thoroton's History of Nottinghamshire: Republished, with Large Additions, by John Throsby. NOTE: The so called Thoroton (2nd Ed.), updated 120 years later by John Throsby of Robert Thoroton's original book (1677).
  • 1797-1783=14: 14 YEARS BEFORE Throsby publishes the Thoroton (2nd Ed.), the Archbishop had ALREADY placed his incorrect genealogy in the Heralds' College. It is curious that Throsby never adds the Archbishop line to descend from Sir Robert Markham of Cotham. Persons mentioned in the Visitation BOOKS are not just placed there from the original visitation itself, but from POST visitation research that can be original records, or family pedigrees submitted over the next 150+ years from the 1614 visitation itself, maybe mostly correct additions.
  • 1871: The last Visitation was begun by Wm. Dugdale in 1662, and finished in 1664. The original is in the College of Arms, MS. C. 84, and contains pedigrees of the following families: Markham of Ollerton etc. Also: Harl. MS 1555, Harl. MS 1400 (John Withie 1631 Enlargements).[110][140]
  • NOTE: No known baptismal record for any Daniel Markham of Cotham. Philip Markham is mentioned separately, no Frances Markham (Maybe the daughter of Sir Robert's brother John ?), NO DANIEL MARKHAM MENTIONED SEPARATELY YET.
  • MARKHAM OF COTHAM ARMS: Cheque Arg. and Gules, a Bend sable, Bekering. And Arg. a Lion Ramp. queve furchè sable, Cressy. NOTE: Being a version of the noble Markham arms, taken from St. Michael's Church, Cotham itself.
  • MURAL TOMB OF ANNE MARKHAM (WARBURTON): This tomb stone of Anne Warburton/Markham (d:1601) was moved from St. Michael's Church, Cotham, to St. Mary Magdalene, Newark. The 8 people in the image I assume are (L-R): 4 daughters, Anne Markham (Mother d:1601), Philip(1)/Alexander/Daniel/Robert/John/Sir Robert (?). Philip(2) excluded. According to Thoroton there were 5 sons from Sir Robert's first marriage (youngest to eldest): m1:Philip(1)-Alexander-Daniel-Robert-John; m2: Philip(2). In 1607 Sir Robert's sons were (youngest to eldest): Philip(2)-Alexander-Robert-John. You have either of:
Robert-John-Sir Robert.
Philip(1)/Alexander/Daniel/Robert-John.
But since Philip(1) has obviously died before 1607, and Philip(2) born 1602/3-07, and Daniel never heard of in 1607, it can only then be either of:
Robert-John-Sir Robert.
Alexander-Robert-John.
  • NOTE: If Sir Robert Markham is NOT in that image, and if Daniel and Philip have died, and as John, Robert, and Alexander survived, then this scene ONLY DEPICTS THE MOTHER AND HER GRIEVING CHILDREN AND THE IMAGE WORKS. The eldest son John could be 20 years old if he was the first born child (1601-1581=20).
  • NOTE: If Sir Robert Markham IS in that image, then he is with John and Robert, then Daniel and Alexander would have to be born from Sir Robert's second marriage, but Daniel is clearly stated to be the 3rd son, and not heard of in 1607. There would have to be FIVE males in that image IF Sir Robert had FOUR surviving sons by the time Sir Robert's wife died in 1601. The number of daughters depicted (4) seems to be correct.
  • NOBLE MARKHAM: YES. DOUBT LEVEL: 0%.
  • CONCLUSION (UNCONFIRMED): DANIEL MARKHAM (COTHAM) SEEMS TO HAVE DIED BEFORE 1601 (?).
  • DOUBT LEVEL: I AM UNABLE TO FIND DANIEL MARKHAM (COTHAM) IN PRIMARY RECORD(S) OR WHERE HE IS SUPPOSED TO EXIST, PARTICULARLY IN THE 1607 RECORD[111][141] WHERE ALL THE KNOWN LIVING SONS ARE MENTIONED, BUT DANIEL IS NOT. IF DANIEL MARKHAM (COTHAM) WAS THE FATHER OF DANIEL MARKHAM (LUDIMAGISTER), HE HAS TO BE BORN AT LEAST BY 1600 OR MUCH MUCH AFTER. ONLY THE ELDEST SON JOHN MARKHAM WAS MENTIONED BY FRANCIS MARKHAM IN HIS PEDIGREE (PRINTED: 1601), BUT JOHN MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE ONLY SON AT THE TIME FRANCIS STARTED HIS PEDIGREE. DANIEL MARKHAM (COTHAM) COULD BE BORN AS EARLY AS 1584 (SIR ROBERT M:1580; JOHN B:C.1581; ROBERT B:C.1583), AND MAYBE DIED WELL BEFORE 1601. THERE IS SOME CHANCE DANIEL MARKHAM COULD BE BORN IN SAY HOLBORN, JUST JUST BEFORE THE REGISTERS START (1605), BUT THEN HE IS MISPLACED BY MARRIAGE, BUT SOMEHOW I DO NOT FEEL THIS IS THE CASE SINCE HE IS NOT MENTIONED IN THE RECORD OF 1607. THE ORIGINAL 1614 VISITATION ITSELF STILL NEEDS TO BE VIEWED. EITHER WAY, DANIEL MARKHAM (COTHAM) IS NOT FOUND LIVING IN 1607, OR AFTER. SO FAR IT SEEMS THAT NO DANIEL MARKHAM OF NORWICH OR COTHAM EVER MARRIED OR HAD OFFSPRING. IF TRUE, IT WILL MEAN THAT EVERY SINGLE GENEALOGY TRYING TO CONNECT TO ANY OF THEM IS WRONG AND POINTLESS. EVERY SINGLE ONE.

DEACON DANIEL MARKHAM

  • FACT 1: Doubt Level: 0%: He is CORRECTLY placed as being born in Earls Colne, Essex, England.

  • ENCYCLOPEDIA OF MASSACHUSETTS, VOL. 10, PG. 185-6, (ALBERT GALLATIN MARKHAM):[134][173] The line through which Albert Gallatin Markham's descent is traced goes back to Claron, of West Markham, a Saxon chief who, for services rendered at the time of the Norman Conquest, was granted lands which had already been held by his father and grandfather before him. From his son Roger, of East Markham, the line is traced through Fulc, of East Markham; his son Sir Alexander, known as Knight of Castellane, of Nottingham Castle, Nottinghamshire; his son Sir William, of Markham and Tuxford; his son Sir Richard; his son Richard (2); his son John, Lord of East Markham, who married John Bottomsell; their son Sir Robert, a lawyer and King's sergeant, who married Isabell Caunton; their son Sir John, barrister and judge, who committed Henry, Prince of Wales (son of Henry IV) to the Fleet Prison in London; his son Sir Robert, who married Elizabeth Burdon; their son Sir Robert, Knight, who married Sarah Joan Daubeney; their son Sir John, who married Alicia Skipworth; their son Sir John (3) who was a lieutenant of the famous "Tower of London" and whose daughter was maid of honor to Queen Elizabeth, married (first) Ann Neville, whose mother was a granddaughter of the Earl of Somerset, son of Duke of Lancaster, son of Henry III, married (second) Margery Langford, (third) Ann Strelly Stanhope; his son John (4), who married Catherine Babbington; their son Robert, who married (first) Maria Leeke, (second) Jane Burnell; their son Sir Robert, of Cotham, married Ann Warburton; their third son Daniel, who was engaged in commercial pursuits and died in Plumstead (now Pirney), Norfolk County, in 1690. after having regained in mercantile pursuits the fortune squandered by his father. Among his children was Daniel Markham, of whom further. (I) Daniel Markham, immigrant ancestor of the line herein traced, was born in Plumstead Manor, near Norwich, England, of which city his brother Matthew was mayor in 1634. The brother Matthew had a son, also named Daniel, who was a colonel in the British Army and came to New York with the Duke of York in 1664; the last named Daniel was the ancestor of Admiral Markham, of the British Navy, whose mother, brothers, and sisters, were living in Independence, Iowa, in 1903. Daniel (2) Markham, the immigrant ancestor, arrived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1665, and in 1665 removed to Middletown, Connecticut, where he became a freeman in 1674, and where he was prominent in the affairs of church and State. He married (first), November 3, 1669, Elizabeth Whitmore, daughter of Lieutenant Francis Whitmore, of Cambridge. She died about 1676, and he married (second) Patience Harris. NOTE: Made freeman of MA Colony (1675-05-12). Applied to be made a freeman (1674-05-27). This article has 3-4 separate Daniel Markham confused. The easiest way to correct the above is to just cross out the incorrect or non-applicable.
  • HISTORY OF THE TOWN OF PLYMOUTH, CONNECTICUT, BY FRANCIS ATWATER. PG. 294:[135][174] Deacon Daniel Markham, a brother of the Mayor (1664) of Norwich, County Norfolk, England. The deacon arrived in Cambridge in 1665. NOTE: The Mayor of Norwich has no known brother Daniel Markham (Invented), and at the very least would be old enough to be Daniel's father (Unrelated). Daniel Markham of Earls Colne, Essex, was in New England by 1655.
  • The Deacon Daniel Markham lineage did NOT bear arms as we know it, and any arms very badly assigned to him on the internet is wrong, those being the arms of the noble Markham family, of which he is not as it is, and there is no record of his family having arms either. He has NOTHING to do with the William Markham the Deputy Governor of PA and William Penn lineages. William Markham seems to have used the noble Markham arms. The Deacon Daniel Markham lineage is quite separate and will have its own unique ascent, if it can ever be further found, and must not be confused with any noble Markham lineage.
  • Deacon Daniel Markham's DNA is unique (Haplogroup I2a),[136][175] whereas nearly all other tested Markham are 'R', including the noble Markham lineage. He has NOTHING to do with any noble Markham of Sedgebrook, Ollerton, Cotham, Becca, and Northamptonshire (The latter as per book value, who are likely to be noble Markham, although unconnected to the main tree, and no DNA tests done for them that I know of).
  • Deacon Daniel Markham like his father was literate, whereas his uncle Abraham Markham was not. {67. 'X' Abraham Markham (Signs 'X'). 70. James Markham (Signs name)}.[137][176] Daniel's mother's step-father was a school teacher in Earls Colne, Essex.
  • Deacon Daniel Markham is currently the only known male Markham to survive in male lineage from any Markham family of Earls Colne EVER (2016). In fact, there is no other Markham family known to have lived in Earls Colne before or after for that matter. His father arrives in Earls Colne, not born there, and lives there until his death. He seems to be in New England by the age of 14 years old (1655) without his parents, and must be with his uncle Edward Collins, quite unique in itself. Statistically one can speculate that if he never left Earls Colne, he probably would have died there young maybe without issue. Amazing points if you ask me. Whilst other Markham/Marcham etc. are mentioned in the records on the Earls Colne website, they were never of Earls Colne and so far unrelated.
  • When James Markham married Martha Collins, HIS family became massively connected to MANY clergy. This is BY FAR the most clergy I have ever seen connected to a non-noble Markham family, via the Collins family for their associated families etc.
  • Deacon Daniel Markham is the only non-noble Markham I know of pre-1700, that held any clergical position of note, although this was in New England.
  • Deacon Daniel Markham's paternal grandfather has not been found, and not linked to any other Markham outside of Earls Colne. If you have any ideas as to the MARKHAM GRANDPARENTS of Daniel Markham, please send me a private message. I would require the names of those persons, a reference of some sort, and a reason why you feel this could be the case.
