I am searching for the ancestors of Alexander Popham, who was born in 1504 in Hunstworth, Somerset, England. He married Jane Stradling and their children were:

William Popham, b. abt 1518

Edward Popham, b. abt 1520, m. Joan Norton

Robert Popham, b. abt 1522

Katherine Popham, b. abt 1524

Elizabeth Popham, b. abt 1526, m. Richard Mitchell

Dorothy Popham, b. abt 1528

John Popham, b. abt 1531, m. Amy (Ann) Games

Any help would be appreciated.

Gary: For your information there is an excellent book on the Popham Family titled:"The Popham Ancestral line of Theron Vasco Morrison" This book carries the Popham Family of Alexander Popham who was died around 1555 in England back another 10 generations to Gilbert de Popham who married Joan (Jane) Clarke in 1200.

I am married to Jeff Fitzloff from St. Clair, MN. His great grandfather was William H Popham born 8-10-1858, did 5-2-1944. His was married to Pauline Grams, born 1-19-1874 in Posen, Germany, died 3-20-1940. Their children were Gertrude Louise, Mrs. JG Krause and Mrs. Walter Clark. Jeff's grandmother was Gertrude Louise. Are these people related to you and if so do you have any further information on them? You can also e-mail me at the above address. Lois

They could be, Lois, but there would be no way of knowing unless we could trace forward to them from my Pophams, who lived in the period 1187 to 1699. Those who lived in the 1600s were living in England and I don't know if their descendants even emmigrated to America. The Pophams intersect with my Stradling line in Wales in the 1500s, and it's the descendants of the Stradlings who were my ancestors in America. The Pophams are all distant cousins of mine.

Gary Rea:

This is for your information. There is an excellent book on the Popham Family titled:
"The Popham Ancestral Line of Theron Vasco Morrison" researched and compiled by Theron Vasco Morrison and his wife Louise Humphreys Morrison.

If I read this book correctly then Theron has traced the Popham Family back another eleven generations into England from Alexander Popham and Jane Stradling. The first Popham he lists is Gilbert de Pophan who married Joan (Jane) Clarke around 1200.

The Popham Family are quite large in Virginia and Kentucky. I myself am the great great grandson of Mary Popham (1822- ?) whose father was Gerard Popham of Culpeper Co., VA. Theron himself is a direct descendant of Job Popham the elder son of John Popham and Rachaell (?) of Culpeper Co., VA.

Thanks, Bernard, but I already have Gilbert de Popham,born abt. 1156 in Popham, Hampshire, England, in my database. I suppose what I found online was posted there by someone who has read the book you mention.

Gary,

Not sure how far you got on your request about the Pophams here in England. The best book I have seen about the early Popham (knowing that pre-1600 is never very reliable) is one published here in the 1970's by F. W. Popham (1977).
Have you seen it?

Thanks, Jim. The Pophams are only cousins of mine, and only the descendants of Alexander Popham (1504-?) and Jane Stradling are related to me. I have the descendants of their children Edward and John, but I lack those of William, Robert, Katherine, Elizabeth and Dorothy. Do you have any data on them?
