Spelling variations of this family name include: Tatham, Tatam, Tatem, Tatum, Tatim, Tathem, Tattum and many more.

First found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1208 when William Tatham held estates. It is said that King John, while being the Earl of Moreton, gave the service of William of Tatham to Robert de Monte Begon (probably about 1185).
