Tatim Early Origins



The surname Tatim 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]

Tatim Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Tatim family name include Tatham, Tatam, Tatem, Tatum, Tatim, Tathem, Tattum and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Tatim surname or a spelling variation of the name include:

Tatim Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Jenny Tatim, aged 15, arrived in West Indies in 1812
