First recorded in 1086, this Richard is the progenitor of a long
line of BICCOMBE individuals who lived in and around the village of Bickham in Somerset, England. This line is closely
associated with the manors of Timberscombe, Crowcombe, and Broomfield in Somerset.
One of the most well known BICKHAM lines in Somerset, England, is
that of Aldred BYCCOMBE of Old Cleeve. The author has concentrated heavily on this line in an attempt to include Richard
BICKHAM of Burlington, New Jersey, into this family.
Richard BICKHAM of New Jersey
First found in records dated 1698, in Burlington, New Jersey, Richard
BICKHAM's parentage is presently unknown with any certainty. He had three known sons - Martin, Richard, Thomas - who
carried the BICKHAM surname into Gloucester County, New Jersey.
Not everything has yet been included for the line carried on by
Martin BICKHAM. Of Richard BICKHAM's three sons, Martin was the only one who did not name his children by name in his
will. This has made research a little more difficult for this line.
Richard BICKHAM, Jr.
Richard BICKHAM, Jr. carried forward his father's name and also
passed it to one of his sons. More research is required for this line, however, what we currently have learned is included
The author's direct ancestor, Thomas BICKHAM has been the son most
thoroughly researched. It was the line of Thomas that made the move to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and from there to
Ohio, Indiana, Kansas, and finally Oklahoma. There are more generations and more information to be included for this
line. The site is a work in progress and this line has much more detail to be placed online.
