1602, Aug 231685, May 25
an English antiquary known as a writer on chronology. He was also a chancery clerk and politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1660 to 1661. Marsham had a reputation in his day for his knowledge of history, chronology, and languages. According to Henry Wotton, Marsham was the first who made Egyptian antiquities intelligible. Arthur Hallam also commended his work. He wrote Diatriba Chronologica, London, 1649, a dissertation in which he examined difficulties in the chronology of the Old Testament. Most of it was afterwards inserted in his more elaborate Chronicus Canon Ægypticus, Ebraicus, Græcus, et disquisitiones, London, 1672, a beautifully printed book.
