HISTORY: William BIGHAM and wife, Sarah The 1771 date of the sale to Robert Brownfield indicates that this was probably the elder William Bigham since his son William born in 1756 would have only been 15 years old at the time. The deed was witnessed by Robert Brownfield and Samuel Bigham and there is no indication as to whether this is Samuel the son or the Samuel who may have been a brother to William. William Bigham obtained this particular plot of land as part of a land grant from the colony of North Carolina on December 23, 1763. The land in 1763 adjoined James McKnight and Hugh Parks and was described as lying on both sides of Rocky Sugar Creek. William probably had or lived on the land before he received the official grant. William had previously obtained a land grant on April 10, 1761 for 195 acres on the head of the north fork of Paw Creek which he later sold to Joseph Moore on November 20, 1762.
