FAMILY HISTORY: WICKHAM

This genealogy of Frederick Wickham is an excerpt from the transcription of a handwritten notebook entitled: Family History: Wickham, Benedict, Preston & Deaver, that I discovered in my grandmother’s papers. The family history in this notebook was the work of two women, Agnes Caroline Wickham and her daughter, Harriott Benedict Wickham Barton (my grandmother), who separately researched and made entries in it over a period of seventy years.  Agnes Wickham wrote roughly half of the entries in the notebook from 1909 to 1915.  In 1915, she gave handwritten copies of her work to each of her five children: Eleanor, William, Lucy, David and Harriott.  Harriott continued her mother’s work off and on for the next sixty years, adding entries as late as 1977.

UPDATE AS OF 7/5/09: Since I first published this page, it has been brought to my attention by Mr. Joseph Wickham that the first Wickham ancestor of Frederick Wickham to settle in America was not Israel Thomas Wickham of Rhode Island, but Thomas Wickham who settled in Connecticut around 1648. Samuel, who is listed in this genealogy as Israel Thomas Wickham’s son, was actually the son of Thomas Wickahm. Agnes Wickham made this mistake when she first researched the Wickham line. Her daughters later caught the error, but did not correct her text. Please see Mr. Wickham’s website FAQs About the Family of Thomas Wickham (1624-1688) for more information about Thomas Wickham and his descendants. I am grateful to him for pointing out the error in this genealogy.

8.  Thomas, born April 2, 1785 – Married Katherine Rutger.  This must be “Aunt Katie” in Angelica’s poem about the house.
All above were natives of Newport, R.I.

5.  William, born July 7, 1778; married Catherine Christian, (daughter of Frederick & Elizabeth Hodgkinson Christian) March 24, 1803;  died at Sodus point, New York, May 1875.  He went to sea when 13 years old – sailed all over the world and at 21 was Captain of a ship.  The old spy glass was his, and the scratch on one of the lenses was made by a passenger when on a trip home from Russia.  Frank Wickham told me that William had a chance (even signed up) to go on the ill-fated Astor expedition (as 1st Mate, I think), but Catherine objected so strenuously that he gave it up.  The ship reached Oregon, but all on board were killed there, presumably by Indians.  Abandoning the sea, he went into business in New York with his brother Thomas as an importing merchant.  They had a shipping business in New York after 1803.  Their ships sailed to the West Indies and one was lost on a return voyage.  In 1807, when President Jefferson put the Embargo on U.S. shipping out of U.S. ports, they had a ship loaded, ready to sail.  Being in hard circumstances, they took a chance, sent the ship out and it was caught and confiscated with its cargo.  This ruined them.  William then went to wilderness shore of Lake Ontario and built a cabin, moving his family up there about 1812 (the year his son, my grandfather, Fredrick was born in New York City).  William had fishing boats and nets there.  The British raided from Canada, burning his cabin, boats, and nets.  The U.S. Government reimbursed all settlers who swore they stayed to defend their property, but William refused to lie (as others did), so had no relief, until, in later years, Congress granted to him and his descendants the right to fish in Lake Ontario forever, regardless of season.  William & Katherine buried in the woods during the raid their silver, including, I think, a tea set given by Queen Anne to William’s ancestor for service to the Queen with their ships out of Rhode Island (Queen Anne’s War). (5)
William Wickham married Catherine Christian in 1803.  She lived in Philadelphia. Her father, Frederick Christian had married Elizabeth Hodgkinson. (6) Elizabeth’s father, or grandfather, John Hodgkinson, according to family legend, was originally John Erskine, Earl of Mar, who took part in the Jacobite insurrections in Scotland in early 1700’s, was in the conspiracy to restore the old Stuart “pretender” to the throne, was captured, escaped to Ireland (where he changed his name to Hodgkinson) then to America. (See Webster Biographical Dictionary).
“There was a young man in Philadelphia who was attentive to me, and while I couldn’t say I loved him, I thought more of him than of any other young man I knew. One day he invited me to go horse back riding and I felt that day he was going to ask me to marry him, and I had made up my mind to accept him. Just as I came downstairs in my riding habit, my brother came into the house with a young man whom he introduced to me as Captain Wickham.  I knew right then I was going to refuse the other young man that afternoon, and I did.  Later your grandfather asked me and we have been lovers ever since.”  Told by Katherine Christian + Wickham (daughter of Frederick & Elizabeth * Hodgkinson Christian) to Sara Wickham of Huron, Erie County, Ohio. (They were married in Christ Church, Philadelphia).
+ The Christians were Flemish people who had settled in Philadelphia.
* Elizabeth Hodgkinson was a granddaughter of Lord Erakeyre,
Earl of Man, who (about 1816) lost his title because of his part in the attempt to put the Stuart “Pretender” back on the throne.  He fled to Ireland and changed his name to Hodgkinson.

(7)  In early life a sailor on the Great Lakes, but gave it up at request of his wife.  At time of marriage was captain of a schooner, DeWitt Clinton, owned by himself and brother John.  Baptized as infant in St. John’s Episcopal Church in New York City.  Brought up at Sodus, New York.  Came to work in Norwalk, Ohio in store of Wickham, Alling & Christian (relatives).  Returned to sailing.  Last trip he left his boat at Perrysburg, Ohio in December 1834, 5 or before, and walked most of way to Norwalk; there went to work in office of Norwalk Reflector, belonging to his father-in-law.  He later became owner and editor of the paper.  Having lived in early life in the wilderness of western New York, he had no education, could not read nor write until grown up.  He then acquired an education and was one of best known editors of Northern Ohio for more than 50 years.  Was Associate Judge of Court of Common Pleas in Huron County, Ohio, Mayor of Norwalk – member of State Senate during Civil War. (8)  Soon after coming to Norwalk, he was very homesick, walking with an acquaintance, he passed a yard where a girl was picking flowers.  He was introduced and was given a flower.  He later says his homesickness vanished immediately.  The girl was Lucy Preston, later his wife.  His son recalls that he spoke of that incident to his wife the day before her death. (9)  Their home was the large white house with two-story vine covered porch, on the north side of West Main Street, Norwalk, just east of the library.  Said to have been a wedding present to Lucy from her brother.  Now the Firelands Museum (the house was moved around the corner to Case Avenue.  Several of the Wickham Brothers had a shipping business – owned a number of Lake Erie sailing ships – Also sold nets & other things to the fishing boatmen.  The Twine House at Huron, beside the river, was one of their warehouses.  Their ships went up into Lake Superior, etc. – Their ships were built up the Huron River, near Milan.

  1. Sir, you have researched a prodigious amount of information and I am in awe. My Wickham ancestor came from Glocestershire in late 1600s, settling in Maryland until 1760s then taking advantage of free land in Virginia. Nathaniel Wickham was the original immigrant and their were 7 in a row.

  2. I am trying to find links to my geneology to other more published findings and have hit a snag. Maybe you could help. My great great grandfather was William E. Wickham, born March 9, 1861, died December 30, 1935, in St. Joseph, MO. I cannot find any information about him other than he once lived in Little Sioux, IA in 1889 when my great grandfather, Frederick Newton Wickham was born on 7-25-1889 to William and a Sarah J. Ellis. If you could help me I would really appreciate it as I am the last Wickham, having no brothers or uncles.

I take no credit for the photos or other research gleaned off the Internet of my blood relatives however they are my actual ancestors. I missed meeting many of the relatives or decendants of John Wickham’s brother William Wickham born in 1829. Many of the decendants of his brother lived in theSussex County area like Newton NJ. I visted my mother’s relatives in the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s not aware there were any of the Wickham family members living there. My father had a uncle’s son Charles Wickham that had worked at a bar across the street from us. I met a few of Charle’s kids at the Colonia NJ fair back in the early 1980’s.

    The sight had problems with software previously. The data they have goes back from Thomas Wickham who died in Wetherfield Connecticut to his Great grandfathers in England.

    I matched Macomberkin’s data with :
    http://fmg.ac/FMG/Scanned_Sources/TPG/vol_3/pp049-074.pdf

    Thomas Wickham is descendant of those that came over to England with William the Conqueror in 1066. Possibly related to Walchelin the Bishop of Winchester.

    http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=63791

    The UK site has several pages covering the Wickham family so you will have to flip throuh the entire website to find the Wickhams as they are descendants of the de Stokes to Walchelin going back to the Domesday Book 1086 and Earlier.

    I have found photos and data published on findagrave.com that belonging to Thomas Wickham’s decendants in NY, Connecticut and Massachuesetts. The site had some in NJ but somebody had removed them. Some of Mine from NJ were lost in a Hard Drive Crash however I do have a few from St Joseph Catholic Church in Macopin / Echo Lake West Milford NJ. I burned all the others on CD!

    Have you been able to get a copy of ” The Salmon Records” ? The Salmon family kept records of deaths and marriages from Southold NY and related families from Connecticut. Many of the Wickham family is recorded in there from the late 1696’s to 1811. Joseph Wickham 1662-1734, Joseph Wickham 1701-1749, and, Joseph Wickham 1728-1782 is in the record .
    Daniel Hall Wickham 1771-1854 wasn’t listed but the wife and their son Daniel and wife and others are buried in Greedwood cemetary in
    Brooklyn NY. Danilel Hall Wickham 1771 his son George Wickham and much of his family is buried St Joseph Catholic Church In Macopin/ Echo Lake West Milford NJ. John Wickham, George’s son is missing along with Eleanor.

    I think I have a photo of George Big Ed Wickham who married Josephine. I got it from an ancestor site by luck while searching in the browser.

  20. Check this site out for the Wickham family:

    http://macomberkin.com/tng/surnames-all.php?tree=macomberkin

    One of their family married a Wickham so the people who run the site added it to all the other people they are related to. Originally their server contained data going back to the Medieval age in England. They changed software and had problems but this link will let you serf through their Wickham files from Thomas Wickham of Wetherfield CT back to the Medeival Ages in England. I was lucky to have copied the older collection of web pages before the software change site at the site. Apparently they had a few errors in death dates. I am sure they had gotten some info off the Fmg. Medieval site that had the records of Charles Wyekham Martin. I have that pdf also!

  21. Here is a site that lists some Wickham records including some data on John Parker whose daughter Abigail married Joseph Wickham 1701 -1749.
    http://www02.us.archive.org/stream/christophersgene00tott/christophersgene00tott_djvu.txt

    I am still trying to find out if John Parker is related to the Parker that brought the first printing press to Woodbridge Towship NJ. If so then I would be related because Abigail Parker married my great… grandfather Joseph Wickham 1701-1749. Parker Wickham 1727-1785 was named for his mothers side. Joseph Wickham 1728-1782 is my great grand father line and Parker’s brother.

  22. Just wanted the Wickham relatives to know some of George Wickham’s descendants from West Milford NJ were still alive in Newton Sussex County NJ in the 1950’s,1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s. I visited my mother’s side of the family an did not know the Wickhams lived there. My dad was unaware while I was too young, not even thinking of the subject.

    To check Wickham members who passed in 1878-1888 + please use this New Jersey State site:

    https://wwwnet1.state.nj.us/DOS/Admin/ArchivesDBPortal/DeathIndex.aspx

    You can copy and paste data found there. Enter the surname and you get all the Wickhams available.

  23. Joe Wickham: who made the nice tree of Thomas Wickham 1624-1688.
    I have found various sites on the Internet with information pertaining to our ancestors in England. The following was taken from the plea rolls and was meant for a E Book Reader.

    Ralph de Wikham, the plaintiff.

    *This must be one of the bits of info researched by Charles Wykam Martin. c 1852. I have the pdf file of his papers that tries to link the Bishop Wyekham to the Wickham family. I also have other files from sites from the U.K. dealing with the medieval subject matter for the Wickham line.

    Manors and Other Estates.

    You should find this interesting because it deals with Waukelin or Wachelin and the other versions of Wickham that linked to Robert de Stokes.

  24. Wiki : says they believe Thomas Wickham 1624-1688 came over with brothers. When George Wickham of England died in 1609 some of the ancestor data had mentioned his wife Jane Shepard remarried Henry Chatfield. Well The Chatfield family ancestors posted their pdf link Online. The pdf lists the marriage of this Jane Weykham and mentions the 3 sons from the marriage that came to America in 1639.

    *The key here is other families who have done their tree , post it listing the names and marriages to other different familes. As for Richard Wickham and Ann of the Rowely MA colony said to be Thomas Wickham’s Brother, I have gotten the Ipswich court papers found on line which show Wicom and Wickham in several documents in Gif’s.

    I would post the Gif’s here but there are over 15 or so. and Gif’s don’t post as text.

  26. Robert son of Walchelin

    http://www.archive.org/stream/eynshamcartular04saltgoog/eynshamcartular04saltgoog_djvu.txt

    Wickham. Robert, son of Walcheline, who is mentioned in
    Donusdc^ as the holder of a mill in Banbury, gave to Eynsham
    all his tithe from Wickham in Banbury (vol. i, p. 37). In 1239
    this possession is described as the tithe of the demesne of Wick-
    ham and of the land which had once been demesne (ib., p. 5).
    In 1279 the demesne was one carucate (Hundred RolUy ii, p. 708),
    and it is probable that Eynsham took the tithes of the two hides
    which in the time of Dotmsday were held by ‘ Robert ‘ in Wickham.
    In 1293 this portion of the tithe was resigned to the rector of
    Banbury (vol i, p. 337). .

  27. Hello Wickham family,
    I recently have started researching the family. I was born in Phoenix Arizona in 1984. My father and his family are from the Ashland, Ohio area. I live in Ashland now also and work as an outside salesman for a local company. While driving in Crawford county today I found Wickham Rd off of state route 100. Curiosity got the best of me and I drove on down. Slightly east of the end of the road at Orr road is a small cemetery with a large Wickham family marker and several small markers. I am now diving head first into research. I know I’m related to 3 generations buried in the Savannah cemetery but am now highly interested in knowing more. My father was Gerald E. Wickham (1945-2002) and his fatherwas John or Jack (?-1971) . Any information would be much appreciated. I do see a trip to the firelands museum in my near future lol. Thank you in advance.
