"The family of Markham," says Thoroton, "then made Cotham their principal residence, and were of great note." .... etc.
  • Sir Robert had two sons, John who succeeded him, and Robert,(*) who married Elizabeth the daughter of Sir William

  • de Mering, a descendant of Agnes Markham and William de Sancta Cruce, mentioned above. He settled at Oxton in the county of Nottingham, and had a son Robert, who married Ela, daughter and heir of John Saperton, by whom he had five children. The eldest of these was William, whose grandson James died without issue, and thus the Oxton family of Markhams became extinct.
  • Sir Robert died about the year 1476, and was succeeded by his eldest son.
  • SIR JOHN MARKHAM is mentioned by Polydore Virgil as one of the leaders who were present at the battle of Stoke in 1488, on the side of Henry VII. He is described as a man of great prowess, and was much employed in public affairs. "But," says Dugdale, "he was an unrulie spirited man, and, striving with the people of Long Benington in Lincolnshire about the boundaries of their lordships, he killed some or other of them (some have it he hanged the priest), for which retiring, he lay hid at a place called Cressi Hall, which he had through his great-grandmother the daughter of Sir John Cressi of Hodsac. Here it was His good fortune to entertain the lady Margaret, mother of King Henry VII., who not only procured his pardon, but married her kinswoman Anne, the daughter and heir of Sir George Neville, to his son, like-wise called Sir John," by Alicia his wife, daughter "of Sir William Skipwith. At this period the Markham family were at the height of their fortunes, .... etc.
  • Pg. 19
  • .... He died at a very advanced age, being near one hundred years old, about the year 1536, and was succeeded by his only son.
  • SIR JOHN MARKHAM married the daughter and heir of Sir George Neville, who on the female side was of royal descent. Her mother, the daughter of Sir Humphrey FitzLewes, was a grand-daughter and coheir of Edmund Beaufort, Marquess and Earl of Somerset (slain at the battle of St. Alban's), the grandson of John of Gaunt Duke of Lancaster (third son of King Edward III.) and Catherine Swynford, daughter of Sir Payn Roet, Guyenne King at Arms. Independent of the brilliancy of this alliance, considerable property also accrued to the family in consequence of it, for the lady herself was her father's heir, as was her mother of Sir Humphrey FitzLewes. ....

  • .... Besides the large possessions which devolved upon Sir John, on the demise of his father, who appears by his son's will to have died outlawed,t and those which came by his marriage with the heiress of Sir George Neville, who succeeded to the estates of Sir Humphrey Lewes, whose wife was daughter and coheiress of Edmund Beaufort Earl of Somerset ; he had grants of several others, among which is one bearing date 28 Hen, VIII, "The house and site of the Abbey of Rufforth, with large manorial possessions attached, were, under the great seal of the Court of Augmentations, demised to Sir John Markham, Knight, and his assigns for twenty-one years, for the yearly rent of twenty-two pounds eight shillings, which, with a vast deal of other property, was by reason of a certain act for dissolving certain religious houses." ....
  • .... He was thrice married ; first to Anne, daughter of Sir George Neville, by whom he had two sons, John and Henry. " This latter was in holy orders, and was installed Precentor of Lincoln Cathedral, March, 26, 1550. He died without issue.

  • His last wife was Anne, relict of Sir Richard Stanhope, daughter and coheir of Sir John Strelly, who was descended from Walter de Stradlegh in the time of Henry I. By her he had William Markham of Okely, who served as Member for the Borough of Nottingham in parliament held at Westminster, in the 1st and 2nd of Philip and Mary.
