Teatum Early Origins



The surname Teatum 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]

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Teatum arrived in North America very early: Bartholomew Tatham who settled in New York in 1698; Benjamin Tatham who settled in Philadelphia in 1798; Catherine Tatham who arrived in New York in 1720.
