From Fulgham-Fulghum Family Database

It is believed that Anthony Fulgham brought over Martha Greene with the same group as Katherine Diamant in about 1650, married her perhaps in Northumberland County, and together they had John and Anthony, Jr. in a colony other than Virginia before migrating to Isle of Wight County in about 1654. Fulgham added to his Pagan River plantation in 1654 through purchase from Sylvester Thacker and then claimed Martha, John and Anthony, Jr. as head rights in the above patent. A curious matter involved with Martha Greene is that she appears to be either the sister, or step-sister of Robert Smith's wife, Jane Greene. [Robert Smith, mariner, lived on the Pagan?s Shore property immediately adjacent to Anthony Fulgham.]

17 FEB 1691 - Martha Fulgham died after the signing of her son Anthony?s will dated 14 October 1678 in which she is a legatee, but before the signing of her son Michael?s will dated 17 February 1691 in which she is not mentioned. It would be highly unusual that, if she were still living in 1691, son Michael would have failed to remember his widowed mother in some small way.
