Tidmersh Early Origins



The surname Tidmersh was first found in Berkshire at Tidmarsh, a parish, in the union of Bradfield, hundred of Theale. The ancient 12th century church is of particular importance. "The church is partly Norman, and partly in the early English style; the doorway is a particularly fine specimen of Norman architecture: the ceiling of the chancel is of panelled oak, and there are two slabs of blue marble, with some ancient brasses."

The first record of the place name was Tedmerse in 1196 and it literally meant "people's or common marsh", from the Old English words "theod" + "mers c. " [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
