Notes for John Webb:
---------
One undocumented account names John's birthdate as April 12, 1640. Also, some genealogists are recording that John is the son of Richard (b.Jan 9, 1610/11) who was son of Richard (b.May 5, 1580) and others say John is son of John who is son of Richard (b.Jan.9, 1610/1611). Therefore, in this database, John (b.1640) is attached to John as natural son and attached to Richard as unknown relationship for now.
---------
John Webb, the eldest, married Dec. 12, 1665, Susanna, widow of Eldad Pomeroy and Matthew Cole.

  Notes for Henry Webb:
---------
HENRY WEBB: Note of special interest to Pohly and Rawlinson descendents: This Henry Webb, who is related by marriage to Jean Rawlinson's family, is the brother of John Webb, who is a direct ancestor of Paul Pohly . This John Webb is Paul T. Pohly's 6th great grandfather, and his brother, Henry Webb is married to the sister, Mary Hurlburt, of Jean Rawlinson Pohly's 4th great grandmother, Miriam Hurlburt. Therefore, Paul Pohly's 6th greatgrandfather was the brother-in-law of Jean Rawlinson's 4th great grandmother's sister. Just a little small world information, since these relationships occurred in the Massachusetts colonies in the 1600s, centuries and miles away from the later marriage meeting of Jean Rawlinson and Paul Pohly in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the mid 1900s.

Notes for Deacon Daniel Markham:
---------
DANIEL MARHAM. The Markham family is of English descent and its various branches have produced many men of distinction as scholars, soldiers, diplomats, and financiers. Very few families in America are able to trace their ancestry to so remote a period as the Markhams. The name dates back to 1066 in England, having originated in a settlement near the border of Mercia, now Scotland, where Claron, of West Markham, a Saxon chief of local renown, assumed the name for convenience in trading. For services rendered at the time of the Norman Conquest he was rewarded with a grant of land which had been held by his father and his grandfather before him, but which would have been given to some Norman lord, had it not been granted to Claron. From Claron, through twenty-one generations covering a period of six centuries, descent is traced to the first American ancestor of the Markhams of this country, Daniel Markham (1648 - 1712). Daniel Markham, the immigrant ancestor of the family in America, was the eighteenth generation in direct descent from Claron, and was born in Earls Clone, Essex, England, the son of James and Martha Markham. He came to Massachusetts in 1665, settling in Cambridge, but it is recorded that two years later he moved to Middletown, Connecticut, where in 1690 he was made a Deacon in the First Congregational Church of Middletown. His descendants scattered to various points in New England and elsewhere, and have contributed worthily to the upbuilding of the communities in which they have lived. Daniel Markham Deacon, was married twice, his first wife being Elizabeth Whitmore

He was baptized 22 Jun 1641 in Earls Colne, Essex, England UK. He married twice. He married Elizabeth Whitmore 3 Nov 1669 in Cambridge, Ma.. Elizabeth was born 2 May 1649 in Cambridge, Ma.. Elizabeth was the daughter of Francis Whitmore Liet. and Isabella Parke. Elizabeth died 10 May 1676 in Middletown, Ct., at age 27. Her body was interred 11 May 1676 in Middletown, Ct.. When Daniel was age 30 and Elizabeth Whitmore was age 22 they became the parents of Daniel Markham II 1 Nov 1671 in Cambridge, Ma.. BAPM: On 25 Jun 1678 in Middletown, CT. 1st Cong. Church. When Daniel was age 32 and Elizabeth Whitmore was age 24 they became the parents of Elizabeth Markham 13 Jul 1673 in Cambridge, Ma.. When Daniel was age 32 and Elizabeth Whitmore was age 25 they became the parents of James Markham 16 May 1674 in Cambridge, Ma.. He married Patience Harris 2 Jan 1677 in Middletown, Ct.. Patience was born 1648 in Middletown, Ct.. Patience was the daughter of William Harris and Edith Bligh. Patience died 19 Mar 1732 in Middletown, Ct., at age 83. Her body was interred 21 Mar 1732 in Middletown, Ct.. When Daniel was age 39 and Patience Harris was age 32 they became the parents of Martha Markham 16 Aug 1680 in Middletown, Ct.. When Daniel was age 43 and Patience Harris was age 36 they became the parents of Martha Markham II 7 Jan 1685 in Middletown, Ct.. He was ordained a deacon 1690 in Middletown, Ct.. When Daniel was age 52 and Patience Harris was age 45 they became the parents of Edith Markham 11 May 1694 in Middletown, Ct.. Daniel, as the father of the groom, attended Deborah Meacham and Daniel Markham II's wedding 21 Apr 1703 in Enfield, Ct..

Daniel's records were checked and verified at the Town Offices in Middletown CT. It was there that we learned that he had been made a Deacon of the First Congregational Church of Middletown CT. Daniel is the first American Markham in line to Clinton Henry Fuller Markham. He is the twenty-first generation in direct descent from Claron. His birthplace, Earls Colne, Essex, England. Daniel came to Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1665 where his uncle, Edward Collins, was a Deacon of the First Church. He was made a freeman on the 27th of May, 1674. On April 21, 1670, Daniel, now living in Medford, MA., was deposed to testify on behalf of Edward Collins, plaintiff, involving an alleged theft of a mare and colt by a neighbor. In 1677, the year after his wife, Elizabeth died, he followed his cousins, Samuel Collins and Rev. Nathaniel Collins, to Middletown, Connecticut. Nathaniel was the first settled pastor in Middletown, ordained there on Nov. 4, 1668. Daniel was one of the proprietors of the first bell which was hung in the meeting-house, Nov. 18, 1679. He became Deacon of the First Congregational Church in 1690, six years after the death of Nathaniel.

For a little insight in the life of Daniel, his last will and testament, dated 23 Nov 1708 is as follows: " I, Daniel Markham, Senior, of Middletown, in the county of Hartford, do ordain this my last will and testament: I give and bequeath unto Patience my wife, whom I ordain my only and sole executrix, so much of my estate as she may choose to improve during life and f20: also my negro Sampson during her life, and then be free, if she live fourteen years after the date hereof. I give to my daughters Martha and Edith f20. My sons, Daniel and James Markham to have the refusal of my lands, they paying their sister's portion. Also to my son Daniel and James Markham, to each of them, f50 in lands. I give my daughter Elizabeth Bates, f38-15-00. I further give her feathers enough to fill a bed. To my daughter Martha Center, f44-10-08, to whom I further give 4 or 5 rods of ground where Jonathan Center's house standeth. I give my grandson Daniel Markham my gun and sword. I request Mr. Russell, Samuel Bidwell and Joseph Rockwell to be overseers." Inventory of his estate was made 18 Febuary 1711, evaluated at f348-15-09. There are two documents which descibe Daniel Markham's land in Middletown, CT. 1. The deed where his father-in-law, William Harris, gives 82 acres of land to Daniel Markham and his daughter, Patience. 2. The deed at the death of William Harris when his property is divided among his sons, daughters, etc.. Ernest A. Markham, in his "Record of the Markham Family of Connecticut;" published in "The New England Historical and Genealogal Register," and under the file number of 000787; Vol. 46; p. 276; held at The Family History Library, at Salt Lake City, Utah contains this information: "The first 82 acres was his [Daniel Markham's] wife's [Patience Harris'] dowry 10 days after marriage, when her father [William Harris] went back to England as the agent for the colony." This property located in Middletown is in the vicinity of Pameacha Brook and Pameacha Pond.

Deacon Daniel Markham, father of Daniel, came to New England in 1665, and lived at Cambridge and Middletown; married, November 3, 1669, Elizabeth Whitmore, born May 1, 1649.
