John Fillingham (Fillingame) Sr, my maternal 6th great-grandfather, was born 13 July 1709 in St. Paul's Parish, Kent, Maryland. He was the son of Richard Fillingham (Fillingame) Jr and Martha Jarvis.
He married Margaret Money (Monnet) on 21 March 1734 in Cecilton, Cecil, Maryland. She was the daughter of Robert Monnet and Margaret Darrel. It is known the couple resided in St. Stephens Parish, Cecil, Maryland from 1734 through 1754 as all of their children were born there. Sometime before 1771, John and Margaret moved to Pitt County, North Carolina. This is proved by the date on his will, 11 November 1771.
