About Anthony Barham
In 1626 Anthony Barham had a patent of 100 acres next to Capt. Nathaniel Basse's on the James River in Isle of Wight, (V.M., 7, p. 218) In March, 1629-1630 he was a member of the House of Burgesses from Mulberry Island across the James from Basse's Choice. He came to Virginia with Capt. Basse on the Abigaile in 1621. His wife, Elizabeth, came on the "William and Thomas" in 1618.
He went back to England, we don't know on what ship or exactly when, and died there.
