The Markham of Chesterfield website is my effort to document and share ideas on the ancestors and descendants of John Markham of Chesterfield County Virginia. John Markham was born at
the beginning of the 18th century, in County Kilkenny Ireland. His family had come from England to Ireland in the previous century. As a young man, John Markham immigrated to America,
first settling in Orange County New York, and about 1750, removing his family to Chesterfield County Virginia.
These pages contain family stories, along with documents, photographs, and genealogies of John Markham’s family. At present, the primary focus is the first three descendant generations
beginning with John Markham of Chesterfield county Virginia. As the website develops, the ancestral families of Markham, Mathews, Briscoe, Bernard, Fletcher and Vincent will be added.
Numerous biographies and sketches will also be included for descendant lines – ie. Fleming, Harris, Bolling, Robertson, Davidson, Weller, Patteson and many others.
