Titmarsh Early Origins



The surname Titmarsh 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."
