  • Notes 
    • Residence after 1784 not clear. Baptism registers of their children indicate that Ralph & Ann Tatham were living at or near Easington, Co. Durham 1787-1789, and at Sherburn in 1792. At some point after 1806 they moved to Bishopton following Ralph's appointment as Vicar. He died there in 1825.
    • My Grandfather, the above named Ralph Tatham, was Vicar of Bishopton, Durham, and left surviving him his wife Anne (née Smith) and his six children, five sons: Ralph, [Thomas], William, Charles and Meaburn (my Father), and one daughter, my Aunt Mary. [Charles Tatham, Recollections]
