Ham, brother of Shem and Japeth, was born when Noah was five hundred years old (Genesis 5:32 KJV). He is also one of those who survived the great flood since he was in the ark with his father. The Biblical Timeline charts Ham’s birth in 2450 BC, when Noah, his father was five hundred years old. The Bible doesn’t say the total number of years of Ham’s existence. The name Ham in Hebrew origin means “warm” or “hot”. In Egypt, Ham means “black”. We have also considered the Egyptian meaning of Ham since Egypt is Mizraim in the Bible and Mizraim is Ham’s son. Ham is the father of Cush, Mizraim, Phut, and Canaan, whom Noah cursed after Ham did not aid his father when he was drunk and naked (Genesis 9:22 KJV).
