Isabelle: First I apologize for the delay. Second, I will start with his parents, since it makes more sense chronologically:


"607. CHRISTOPHER TILGHMAN, son of Nicholas (606) and Jane (Benson) Tilghman, is described in the "Visitation of Kent," as being "de Selling," which is to say that he lived in the Parish of Selling, Faversham Hundred. He m. Anna Sanders, daughter of Edward and Anna (Pandreth) Sanders. English records indicate that Anna Sanders was a direct descendant of William, The Conqueror. See paragraph11 for descent from the English Royal family. Christopher Tilghman d. prior to 1619 for erry in his "County Genealogies," speaks of Anna Tilghman, widow of Christopher, in that year. Issue: Christopher, b. circa 1600, a second John, and Mary, who m. Thomas --. In "Memories of Malling and Its Valley," is the statement that Armigill, and John, sons of Christopher, were baptized Apr. 23, 1592, and that John d. June 3, 1592."


"613. CHRISTOPHER TILGHMAN, son of Chrisopher (607) and Anna (Sanders) Tilghman, was b. circa 1600 in Selling, Faversham Hundred, Kent County, England, and d. in James City County, Virginia. He m. Ruth Devonshire. Issue: Roger, b. 1650, Gideon, and John. The time of his arrival in Virginia is listed in Greer's "Early Emigrants to Virginia," and "Patents of Virginia," May 9, 1635. In the "Visitation of Kent," is shown the fact that Christopher Tilghman came into possession of Rhodes Court, formerly owned by Thomas Bealde, and that Christopher sold this estate to Thomas Carter. The Court is described as being a Manor situated int he Southeast extremity of the Parish of Selling, in the borough of Rhodes. Selling and Boughton are two parishes on the South or opposite side of the London road."


"614. ROGER TILGHMAN, son of Christopher (613) and Ruth (Devonshire) Tilghman, was b. 1650 in Accomac Coutny, Virginia. He left a family Bible or journal, which passed to his son Robert. Roger located on 1060 acres of land in Bristol Parish, Charles City County, Virginia, Apr. 20, 1689 (Records of the Landoffice, Richmond, Virginia). This patent was for the transportation of 22 persons into the Colony. This was in the form of headrights. The place selected was known as Fort Tillman, and was situated on the South side of the Appomattox River, at Moneus-a-Nock (Monk's Neck), thence to Gravelly Run. This is now in Dinwiddie County. After settling in Virginia Roger changed the spelling of his name from Tilghman to Tillman or at least it appears on some of the existing records. His children did not all immediately change the spelling of the name, as will be found from tombstones found in North Carolina. Roger m. firstly 1674 Winnefred Austin. Issue: Robert, b. 1675. Roger m. secondly 1680 Mrs. Susanna Parram or Parham, b. 1648 and d. Mar. 2. 1717, in Prince George County, Virginia. Issue by second marriage: John, b. 1682, George, b. Jan. 10, 1683, Jane, who m. Nicholas Robinson: and Christine, who m. Robert Abernathy."
