The surname Tatham was first found in Yorkshire where 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). Tatham is a parish, in the hundred of Lonsdale, south of the Sands in Lancashire. The place name dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Tathaim. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
