  • ID: I33107
  • Name: Anthony FULGHAM , Capt. 1
  • Sex: M
  • Name: Anthony FULGHUM , Capt. 2
  • Birth: ABT 1600 in England 2
  • Death: BEF 2 MAY 1670 in Isle of Wight Co, VA 2
  • Event: Bullet IMMIGRANT
  • Note:
    According to Peter Thompson, of Oxford Univ., in a paper written for a Univ. of Georgia Research Colloquium, 28 Apr 2004, entitled "Counties and Commonalities: New Perpectives on Bacon's Rebellion", Anthony's son (also named Anthony) supported Bacon in his rebellion, and organized and signed a petition to the House of Burgesses with 26 grievances in 5 March 1677. John Fulgham was the elder son and heir (but apparently, according to Brent Fulgham, John became a mariner and renounced his inheritance in favor of his brother Anthony). Peter Thompson, writing of the younger Anthony (supporter of the Bacon Rebellion) stated: "...the Fulghams were an armigerous family comfortably situated in England. In 1664 Fulgham's father, Captain Anthony Fulgham received patent to 1,000 acres in Isle of Wight county due to him for the importation of 20 persons. The following year he was granted a further 1,600 acres for the importation of 30 persons." According to Peter Thompson, Anthony was a Justice in 1665-66, and at least a one-term member of the House of Burgesses.

    I have found the above mentioned land transactions elsewhere (on "Deed Mapper"), with the dates of the transactions being 28 June 1664 for the 1,000 acres and 12 July 1665 for the 1,600 acres. I see Brent Fulgham (World Connect db=bfulgham) has found additional Virginia public records that indicate Anthony was granted 100 acres on 10 Oct 1643, 500 acres on 5 Sep 1650, and 150 acres on 18 March 1668 (100 acres on Pagan Point Bay and 50 acres of marsh land next to it). That makes 3,350 acres in total.

    I have found two SGM postings on Anthony Fulgham: The first indicates some of the evidence linking him to his supposed father Hercules Foljambe, and the second gives an ancestry for Anthony.

    Subject: Foljambe/Fulghum Connection?

    The recent postings on the Foljambe line raise a key question for me. Is there a linkage between the early Foljambe family and the Fulghum/Fulgham family of early Virginia and North Carolina?

    Captain Anthony Fulghum is found in Virginia as early as 1643 when he had a land grant (name spelled Fulliamb on the patent per: Dr. Fulghum) in Isle of Wight County, VA. He appears to have been a person of some prominence, serving as a local magistrate, captain in the militia, and participated in the Bacon Rebellion. His wife's name was Martha ____, and he had sons named John, Anthony, Michael, and Nicholas. His birth is estimated to be about 1600, and he died bef. May 2, 1670.

    Dr. James E. Fulghum, MD, was the long-time historian for the Fulgham-Fulghum Family Association, and he has written a number of papers regarding a possible Foljambe/Fulghum connection. A second, locally produced paper, by Russell Fulgham supports this theory. He cites an article by J.B. Boddie in "Historical Southern Families (Vol. III, p. 86) in which Boddie states (regarding Anthony Fulgham): "it is believed that he was a descendant of the Foljambe family of Walton Hall, Derbyshire, England, and was probably a son of Hercules Foljambe and his wife Sarah Hardwicke." Mr. Fulgham reports this can be neither confirmed nor denied.

    In a paper written in 1978 and revised in 1985 and 1987, Dr. Fulghum suggested a possible link to Hercules Foljambe, a sea captain and general associated with the Earl of Cumberland. Hercules was active in the West Indies in the early 1600s. Dr. Fulghum indicates that Hercules had a son named Anthony who operated in Barbados for a time.

    Chris Phillips was kind enough to reference the Foljambe file he has posted on his website. This file includes Hercules Foljambe, and indicates he was married three times. Unfortunately, no Foljambe children (of Hercules) are identified by name on the file.

    I'm still confused about the various definitions for gateway ancestors, but I'm wondering if Capt. Anthony Fulghum might meet those requirements? Can anyone confirm, or disprove, a connection between Capt. Anthony and the Foljambe family of England?

    Thanks for any assistance that can be provided,

    Gordon Kirkemo



    The following post, has a pedigree for Anthony, but unfortunately is not valid for Hercules' ancestry (prior to Godfrey & Elizabeth Dracott) in that it mixes up two different descents within the pedgree given in the "Pedigrees of the County Families of Yorkshire" (see notes under father Hercules Foljambe):

    Subject: Foljambe & FitzWilliam to Edward III

    Could someone please offer a critique of the following supposed royal lineage of Hercules Foljambe, the likely father of VA immigrant Capt. Anthony Fulgham?

    1) Edward III
    2) John of Gaunt
    3) Joan Beaufort = Ralph de Neville
    4) Richard de Neville = Alice de Montagu
    5) John de Neville = Isabel de Ingoldesthorpe
    6) Lucy de Neville (d.1534) = Thomas FitzWilliam (1448-1495), of Aldwark, York, England
    7) Thomas FitzWilliam (d. 1513) = Agnes Packenham
    8) Alice FitzWilliam = James Foljambe
    9) Godfrey Foljambe = Troth Tyrwhitt
    10) Godfrey Foljambe = Isabel Wray
    11) Godfrey Foljambe = Elizabeth Dracott
    12) Hercules Foljambe = Sarah Hardwick
    13) (possibly) Capt. Anthony Fulgham, of VA

    Any comments or corrections regarding this lineage would be most welcome.
