    Henrico County, Virginia: Beginnings of Its Families: Part I

    Page 139. The Elams were represented in Henrico as early as November 1642 in the person of Robert Elam who at that date had a patent for land above Bermuda Hundred, between the lands of Thomas Sheppy and Richard Johnson and among the headrights to the patent is the name of Ann Elam. It appears from the records that Ann, the daughter of Robert Elam, married Gilbert Elam, who appears in the list for 1679 as "Mr Gilbert Elam, sen". How much earlier than September 1661 Gilbert Elam was in the colony does not appear but in that month he had a patent for land on south side of James River, between the lands of Thomas Sheppy and
    Richard Johnson. At what date William Elam came into the colony is not
    known. Martin Elam had a patent in 1672. The degree of relationship
    existing between Gilbert Elam, William Elam and Martin Elam is not dis-
    closed by the remaining records, nor is the degree of relationship existing
    between any one of the trio and Robert Elam given, with the exception that
    Gilbert married the daughter of Robert. William Elam and Martin Elam were, however, doubtless uncle and nephew as William Elam in his will dated 18 February 1688-9 devised property to "my loving cozen Martin Elam", the term cousin being in that day genreally applied to nephews and nieces. Then in his will dated 7 March 1691-2, Martin Elam bequeathes several articles which, he says, were "my uncles". Martin Elam also mentions in his will silver spoons "two of them on old Robert Elam's mark".
