Change Date: 11 DEC 2012
22 Oct 1643: Silvester Thacker & Anthony Fulliamb, 100 acs. Isle of Wight Co. Page 937. Lying upon Pagan Point Bay, E. upon land of Mr. Thomas Davis & S. upon Mr John Mahoone. Trans of 2 pers: John Cockett (Corbett?) & Sarah (Hanah?) Robinson. (As noted, Anthony Fulgham, the immigrant ancestor of the Fulgham Family in America, first appeared in the official records of Virginia in 1643. This date would have placed him in Virginia as early as 1640 since about 3 years were required to ?seat? land proposed to be patented prior to the issuance of the patent. Fulgham?s partner in the 100 acre patent, Silvester Thacker, appears to have been the ?Silvester Thatcher?, aged 21 years, that came over on the Paule of London, Leonard Betts, Master, on July 6, 1635, placing Thacker?s birth year in 1614. It is speculated that Fulgham and Thacker were contemporaries, with Thacker being slightly older based on his name recorded first on the patent. It is inferred that Fulgham?s birth year was 1615.)
5 Sept 1650: Anthony Fuljam, 500 acs. lyeing on N. side Rappa. Riv., next above the land of George Taylor, (on the south side of the easternmost branch of the Corotoman River), p. 259. Trans. 10 pers.: Stephen Chilton, Anne Venicomb, Hump. Jones, John Boein, George Minery, Owen Middleton, John Godwin, Wm. Bilby, Eliza. Waters, Charles Barcroft, ?the 3rd tyme due for.? (Again, due to the lead time for seating land, the patent date would have placed Anthony Fulgham in what at that time was called Chicacoan Indian Territory, in 1647. In 1648, Anthony Fulgham?s Corotoman land patent was enclosed into Northumberland County and in 1651 it became enclosed into the newly formed Lancaster County.)
4 Feb 1654: Will of Robert Chambers dated 4 Feb 1654 in Lancaster County mentions ?Mr. Fullgham? as a legatee. This indicates that Anthony Fulgham was residing on his Corotoman patent as late as Feb 1654.
16 Dec 1654: Sylvester Thacher, Gent. of Lancaster County to Anthony Fulgham; 100 acres (whereon said Thatcher formerly lived but now in the tenure of Richard Way.) on Warrisqueak Bay and bounded by Richard Maddison, Nathaniel Jones, John Tomlin and Thomas Jones (formerly belonged to Captain John Moon) and said Fulgham (formerly granted to Mr. Thomas Davis.) Witnesses: Edward Skynner and Robert Bird.
20 FEB 1662 - CAPT. JOHN WEIR, 1200 acs. Rappa. Co., 20 Feb 1662, p. 90 (579). Upon N. side of Rappa. Riv., 500 acs. at the run next above land of George Taylour; 700 acs. upon Cliffts Cr. & running unto land of Antho. Fullgam. 500 acs. granted to sd. Fullgam, 5 Sept 1650 & assigned to sd. Weir; 700 acs. granted sd. Weir, 14 May 1653. (NOTE: It is reasonable to infer that Anthony Fulgham filed for his patent on 500 acres in ca. 1647 and received it in 1650 while retaining stewardship over it awaiting arrival of John Weir and family in 1650. About 4 Feb 1654 Fulgham appears to have returned to Isle of Wight County. Prior to 20 Feb 1662 Weir concluded their stewardship agreement and was assigned the 500 acres originally patented by Fulgham.)
28 Jun, 1664: Capt Anthony Fulgham, 1000 acs. Is. of Wight Co., p. 383. On a br. of the Black Water, beg. at S.W., cor. of Mathew Tomlin?s land, running Wly. & c. by a meadow &c. Trans. of 20 pers; Daniell Wilson, his wife, Edd. Atwood, Robt. Cole, Katharine Diamant, Martha Greene, Wm. Lewis, Robt., Edwards, Jno Browne, Jno Fulgham, Anthony Fulgham, Jno Boron, Eliz Day, Joseph Butler, Hen Gough, Jno Whoman, Eliz Barnett (or Barrett), Susan Smith, Tho. St. Jno., Jno Wilson. [Note: Edward Atwood, John Bowen/Boron/Boein, Elizabeth Day, and Katherine Diamont had been headrights for Anthony Fulgham, and others, prior to 1655. Fulgham was in Bristol Gloucester prior to 1655 to arrange indentures for Hester Meene and Katherine Diamant. It is believed that Anthony Fulgham married Martha Greene in 1650, John Fulgham was born in England in 1651 and Anthony, Jr. in 1653. Fulgham added to his Pagan River plantation in 1654 through purchase from Sylvester Thacker and then brought over Martha, John and Anthony, Jr. at his own cost as head rights.]
12 Jul 1665: Capt. Anthony Fulgham, 1600 acs. Isle of Wight Co., p. 253. Beg at W. side of a meadow at the head of the W. Branch, running W by Mr. Bodye?s marked trees &c. Trans. of 30 pers: Wm.

9 Feb 1666: Capt. Anthony Fulgham present att court. He appears to have been appointed an Isle of Wight County Justice some time before this date.
