Turnham Early Origins



The surname Turnham was first found in Middlesex where the family was first referenced in the year 1194 when Robert de Turnham held Turnham Green in Chiswick. Another reference was found of what we presume is the same person. "Bayham Abbey [in the parish of Frant in Kent] was founded for Præmonstratensian canons, by Robert de Turneham, who, about 1200, gave all his lands here for the purpose." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
