  Noted events in his life were:

Residence, 2 Sep 1752, Shoesmiths [now Great Shoesmiths Farm], Whitegates Lane, Wadhurst, East Sussex, TN5 6QG, GB. The house seems to have been bought in 1622 from the Fowles of Riverhall by a John Barham, great grandson of the first possessor of Great Butts, who married a Dunmoll. He died in 1639 leaving all his property in Wadhurst and Frant to his second son, John. This John married at Frant, Elizabeth, daughter of his cousin, Nicholas of Great Butts, and died aged 31, leaving one son and one daughter. The son succeeding to this property, on coming of age, owned also Buckhurst and Snape Wood. He married Lucy, daughter of John Chauntler. Their only son died in infancy and their only daughter at the age of 16. In this last sorrow, and under the " growing influence of his wife," he executed deeds conveying to her power to dispose of both his real and personal Estate, to the prejudice of his near relations at Great Butts and Riverhall. Her will bequeathed Shoesmiths, then in occupation of her second husband Puxty and W. Clarke, to G. Courthope of Whiligh and another : " to hold after decease of my said husband in trust for G. Eagles of Uckfield."

Probate, 26 May 1753, London, GB. 2
