      !FAMILY: In MD abt 1750; Episc. Minister. No wife listed in Mrs. Evans' data. She lists his father as Jervis Hougham and mother as Eleanor __________. The three children listed are probably not all of Jarvis' children. According to Mrs. Evans this line goes back to 15th Cent. England and Solomon Hougham. Jarvis is the 8th generation from Solomon. She quotes from a DAR ms.: The lineage of the Hougham family of Johnson Co. (Ind.) can be traced back to Solomon Hougham of the 15th century in England, 8 generations bring the name down to Jarvis b 1729 at Hougham Manor near Dover Eng. He came to Maryland ca 1750--Episcopal minister."
      !RESIDED: Lived Washington Co, MD, 1778.
      !HISTORY: Also from Jean Evans: In the history of Johnson Co. KY (part of old Mason Co.) are listed tax-payers for 1793--Moses Hougham. Migration possibly from MD to VA to KY to OH to IN to IL to IA.

      The Ohio Company; it's inner history Alfred P. James presents a comprehensive reconstruction of the history and activities of the Ohio Company of Virginia, which was formed by esquire Thomas Lee and eleven others. In 1747, the group petitioned the governor and Council of Virginia for 200,000 acres of land west of the Allegheny Mountains. There they would build a fort and storehouses for the future settlement of the area by families. James also examines the effects of the French and Indian War on the settlements, and the vain attempts of the company to reorganize after the war. As his study reveals, despite these events, the Ohio Company was instrumental in developing the land that would later become western Pennsylvania. The book also reproduces some 1,200 pieces of company correspondence, including land and commercial transactions. This says Jarvis Hougham was married to Elizabeth Lamy and was together in 1747 because of land they bought together. <http://books.google.com/books?id=Q_0TAAAAYAAJ&q=jarvis+hougham&dq=jarvis+hougham&lr=&cd=5>
