In Reply to: Delaware Lynams by joseph davis of 386

James. Hello.

I'm researching a John Lynam [Lyneham] of Northumberland County, Virginia.
John Lyneham was living in Northumberland as early as 1685. And appears in many court records circa 1712 in that same county.

I'm not sure if my John Lyneham [Lynem/Lynam/Linnum/Lynum] is your Lynam, but there is a house in that county that's called Lyneham's House built in the early 18th century on land owned by John Lynam.

I do know there was a John Lynam living in New Castle, Delaware around the same time. He was living in Christiana [a Swedish settlement].

I also noted there were Lynams living in South Carolina circa 1790. I'm not certain if these Lynams are connected to the Virginia Lynams or the Delaware Lynams.

It does appear that the Delware Lynams were Swedish and the Virginia Lynams [Lynehams] were English or Scotch-Irish.

I'm looking for any info on the Virginia Lynams who may been indentured servants or not who could have fathered two mulatto children who were in the custody of the Routt family of Stafford County, Virginia. These children were considered free people of color, and eventually migrated to Kentucky in the 1780s.
