The Barcham Family

Descendants of Sarah and William Barcham

Several thousand descendants of Sarah (née Dyboll) (1724-1803) and William Barcham (1717-1782) of Edingthorpe have now been recorded. They had eight children: three daughters – Hannah, Elizabeth and Sarah – died young, aged 21, 6 and 16 years respectively; the families of their daughter Mary, who married William Rudd, and their youngest son Thomas have not been researched. The remaining three sons married and each have seventh- and eighth-generation descendants living today in the United Kingdom and around the world.The three branches that have been researched are: descendants of Rebecca (née Diaball) and William Barcham (1744-1771) of Great Yarmouth and Mundesley; the family of Elizabeth (née Helsdon) (1752-1845) and John Barcham (1749-1828) who inherited Church Farm, Edingthorpe; and the third is Mary (née Banfather) (1759-1845) and Benjamin Barcham (1758-1830) who lived at Lower Sherringham, Norfolk.
