William Barnham, England c1700
Taken in Norwich, Norfolk County, England in .
William Barnham, Mayor of Norwich: William was a hosier, served as Alderman for the South Conisford Ward, Norwich in 1688, and was at one time Mayor of Norwich.
Marilyn Myers Information is incorrect. The William Barnham in the painting was lord mayor in 1652. The William Barnham who was Alderman for Conisford Ward was the son of his nephew. The latter had only just been born in 1652. The latter is also the one who had four wives, not the Lord Mayor. And neither were the sons of Sir Martin Barnham and Elizabeth Lennard. There is much incorrect information on the internet about these three William Barnhams.
