pg 30

Barham House. Unknown location and condition

The earliest land grant to the Barham family in Surry Co. occurred on May 14, 1666 when 850 acres were patented by Charles Barham and William Cockerham on the "eastward side of the third swamp of the Blackwater," possibly present-day Moore's Swamp. Mary Stephenson recorded that their plantation, "was near Wall's Bridge;" Civil War maps show "Barham's Store" near there.

((( I do find the placement of the Barham you mentioned in your query on the cover of the book above which is a map.)))

Sorry I could not find more.
