According to The Barham Family, one Robert BARHAM of Boughton Monchelsea, Kent, s/o "Thomas BARHAM and "Mildred dau of Thomas FRANCKELYN of East Sutton Kent and sister to John FRANCKELYN of Charte (Kent)," married 1593/4, Canterbury, Kent, Susana SARE, their marriage record stating "by license 7 Jan 1595 Susanna dau of Thomas SHARE of Provender in Norton, Gentleman."

Susan SARE was the d/o Thomas and Joan ADY Sare and sister of Ady SARE of the Inner Temple and Provender, Norton, Kent, who m Sarah ARCHDALE, d/o Thomas and Mary CLIFTON Archdale of London.

The Barham Family report adds that Robert BARHAM the younger (s/o Robert and Susan SARE Barham) married 1 Aug 1620, Katherine FILMER, d/o Sir Edward and Elizabeth FILMER of East Sutton, Kent. Other records seem to indicate that Elizabeth FILMER was nee ARGALL, the d/o Richard and Mary SCOTT Argall,that Mary SCOTT was the sister of Charles SCOTT of Egerton, Kent, father of Deborah who married William FLEET (s/o William and Katherine HONEYWOOD Fleet), parents of Henry FLEET whose land was adjacent to that of the above-noted Archdale COMBE of Old Rappa County, Virginia. In her 1651/2 Westminster will, Deborah FLEET bequeathed "All goods to my cousins Sir Robert FILMER & Sir Edward FILMER, both of East Sutton, Kent, knights, & they to be ex'ors, towards payment of such sums as sd. Sir R. FILMER lent me & my son Henry FLEETE towards the recovering of my sd. son of a great sickness & for furnishing him with provisions & necessaries for his last voyage to Virginia." Henry FLEET later owned land in Old Rappahannock County, Virginia adjacent to that of John, s/o Archdale COMBE, who is thought to probably have been the grandson of John and Margaret ARCHDALE Combe. Margaret ARCHDALE was the sister to Sarah ARCHDALE Sare.

The 1632 London will of Dorothie SCOTT, spinster sister of Deborah SCOTT Fleet, names her friend Sir Robert FILMER overseer. It is witnessed by "Scrivener Thomas DUTTON," who is likely the same who married 3 Nov 1623, St. James Clerkenwell, Middlesex, Sarah "Susan" SARE, daughter of Ady and Sarah ARCHDALE Sare.
