About George Bonham

CAUTION...The parentage I give is an alternative to the more widely held but also unproved Stanway Hall pedigree (Edwin Poor) The ship in the photo is of the 20th Century Amerigo Vespucci way too large for the 17th century.

Update (1) 12 Sep 2011 Please read this web article!http://genforum.genealogy.com/bonham/messages/2010.html

.

Update 9/24/2011 The author apparently missed one statement in the records. 99% confirmation Nicholas was son of George. One consideration for being admitted citizenship was that Nicholas was a son of a current citizen.

If this is correct It also shows that George unlikely would have been descended from the family of Stanway Hall

Parentage of George given here is only a possibility. I give it only for further research.

    Traditional thinking is he came from Stanway Hall in Essex but that George seems to have died in England. If William Bonham, vintner of London in Will named two daughters of brother George deceased before 1628  Update (2)12 Sep 2011. This William names places in Suffolk but not in Wiltshire and Essex, so probably not of Stanway Hall either

-------------------- "On April 28, 1704 dyed our brother George

Bonham. He lived to a good old age being about 95 years of age. He was

a good man spake well of and is gone to receive his crown." -------------------- The first of this line to be found in America is George Bonham, who came to this country from Gravesend, England, in 1635, at the age of 31. His wife is believed to Sarah Morton, daughter of George Morton.

Child of Samuel Bonham and wife Sarah Morton:
