Richard Barham McDonough, Ga. commented on 09-Mar-2019
My understanding for the origin of the Barham name is: Sir Knight Richard Fitz-Urse, son of King Henry I, had two sons Sir Knight Reginald and Sir Knight Richard Fitz-Urse Sir Reginald was one of the knights involved in the murder of Thomas Beckett, Archbishop of Canterbury. This event brought about a scandal that resulted in a change to the family name. The final variation resulted in the spelling of BARHAM which means "Homestead on the Hill" Captain Charles Barham came to the U.S. in the 1600s
