I'm on a quest to learn about the Markhams and the first man that took the name - Claron de Marcham.
My lineage: Markhams, Barnes, Bement, Miller (to list a few).
Come join me on my quest!

I'm looking for descendants of Claron de Marcham (Markham), the first recording of the man that adopted the last name "Marcham" around 1066.
I have been estranged from my biological family since I was about 12 years old. I'm basically a 46 year old orphan on a quest to learn more about my maternal side. I've been addicted to history all my life but have never really attempted to learn more about my own history, until this year.
Now I can't stop! I know you all know exactly what I mean.
In my mission I have learned some interesting things and have come across some very confusing facts or should I say "guesses." The tree I was building became quite cluttered and I can't stand clutter around me and especially in my mind. So I am starting from the top (Claron) and working my way to me.
I have developed a blog focusing solely on this:
I would love others that may be related to join me on this quest. With respect to the Millers, the connection would be Polly Sacket Lobdell (1782-1842) who married my 4th Great Grandfather John Miller (Abt 1778-1864). Polly's parents were Asa Barnes (1760-1824) and Mary Polly Day (1768-1825). Asa's parents were Captain Phineas Barnes (1730-1795) and Phebe Bement (1734-1815). Here's the Markham connection. Phebe's parents were William Bement (1708-1798) and Phebe Markham (1713-1798). Phebe Markham is my 7th Great Grandmother.
So if you feel you might be related and you'd like to learn more about our forefathers, starting with Claron de Marcham (1040-1086 - although I'm trying to confirm this) please come join me.
