HAM Surname Counties of Origin in Virginia
Video of the Counties of migration of the HAM surname in Virginia prior to 1800.
From the book "A Short History of the HAM Surname in Virginia & NC."
Not all counties are included here. For example, counties are not included that were once in Virginia but now are in present day West Virginia. But, it does give a quick overview of the migration pattern for the HAM surname in Virginia prior to 1800.
Lists names of first inhabitants with the surname HAM(/M/ES) by County.
In a few cases, I had to make a judgement call on which person to list. For example, Joseph HAM arrived in 1621 in Elizabeth City County, but died in York County. Or, for example, John HAM died in Stafford County in 1739, but Elizabeth HAM is the first to appear in Stafford County in the book (1716), so Elizabeth was listed in the video. Another example would be Jerome HAM, who first held land in Charles City County, but lived in York County. Therefore, a few adjustments were made in order for the video to make better sense.
