Isham Randolph (December 1684[1] – November 1742),[2] sometimes referred to as Isham Randolph of Dungeness,[3] was the maternal grandfather of United States President Thomas Jefferson. Randolph was a planter, a merchant, a public official, and a shipmaster.[4]

Early life and career

Randolph was born on the Turkey Island plantation in Henrico County, Virginia in December 1684.[5] He was the third son of William Randolph (1650–1711) and Mary Isham (ca. 1659–1735).[6] His father was a colonist, landowner, planter, and merchant who served as the 26th Speaker of the Virginia House of Burgesses.

Following his father, he was a prominent planter, merchant, public official, and also was a shipmaster.[4]

Personal life

In 1717, Randolph married Jane Lilburne Susan Rogers in London[2] at St. Paul's Church in the Shadwell parish (today east London). Isham and Jane Randolph moved to Virginia. Together, they had nine children[nb 1] and was familially connected to many other prominent individuals:

Randolph died in November 1742.[2]
