    • Pubsey was very much in love with our Grandmother Elizabeth Collingridge, who must have been beautiful, with blue eyes and auburn hair, and a very white skin. He followed her, and her aunt Miss Mary Ann Fortescue, to Bath, when they went there on a visit, and on the return journey followed them up Highgate Hill in a Hansom, alighting at the right moment to walk with them up the steepest part.

    Notes 
    • Exactly opposite Holly Lodge lived a Mr. Collingridge, a widower, occupying a nice fair sized house with his sister-in-law and his daughter, his only child, a very pretty girl then about 22 years of age. In 1850, while I was forming one of the reading party in Jersey, Mr. Collingridge died; Miss Fortescue and his daughter continued to reside in the house. People used to joke and tell me I had better look after the young lady, saying that she was very pretty, and had a large fortune. ...
      One morning in the spring of 1852, Miss Fortescue, Miss Collingridge's aunt, sent my Mother a note, asking if she would allow them, the aunt and her niece, to accompany our family to the Highgate Institute, where instructive lectures were being given on certain evenings in the week at 8 o'clock. My Mother said she would be delighted to do so. On the first evening I walked up the Hill to the Lecture room with Miss Collingridge, sitting next her in the room, and from that moment fell desperately in love with her. After a year's wooing we were married by my Uncle Ralph and Mr. Causton, the Vicar at St. Michael's Church Highgate on July 20th 1853. My dear Father allowed me 100 a year till I should make a fair income at the Bar. I hope I may be believed when I say that I should have fallen in love had the young lady, Miss Elizabeth Collingridge, been possessed of no money at all. ...
      I courted my dear wife some 8 or 9 months before she would accept my suit. Some time in the year 1852 her Aunt and herself went down to Bath for a few weeks, to stay with another aunt, a Mrs Forster, who with two stepsons lived, I think, at Lansdowne Crescent. While they were there I went to a hotel in Bath for a few days, and found out that on Sundays Mrs Forster and Miss Fortescue with their niece went to what was then called a Chapel-of-Ease, Landerdale Chapel. I sat behind them, and after, the service, joined them on coming out. I was introduced to Mrs Forster, and was asked by her to their mid-day dinner, to my great joy, had a walk with all three of them after dinner, and was asked to dinner again on the next day, after which I had to return to London. I found out on what day the Aunt and her niece were returning home; I met them at Paddington; they had their own carriage waiting for them, I pursued them in a Hansom to the foot of Highgate's steep hill, and we all walked up to their house. My suit progressed favourably after that. I became engaged about the end of August 1852, I think. I went for a few weeks with them on a tour in Wales and the Lakes, and was married on July 20th 1853.
      [Charles Tatham Recollections]
    • Origin of name Talbot in Tatham family:
      One of the witnesses at the marriage of Charles Tatham & Elizabeth Collingridge on 20 Jul 1853 was James Hale Talbot.
      He was born at Olney on 02 Jun 1808, son of John Hale Talbot and Sarah Thompson, marr at Olney 18 Jul 1804.
      In Mar 1851 census James Hale Talbot was resid at the Rectory, Newton Blossomville [abt 2m from Olney & 3m from Emberton]: widower, 42, Rector, b Olney. Also resid 3 sons & 3 daus. Also Mary E Simpson, late wife's sister, unmarr, 49, clergyman's 3 daughter, b Chesham; + 3 servants.
      He may be related to Thomas Hale, husband of Elizabeth Collingridge's aunt Elizabeth. After Thomas & Elizabeth Hale died, Charles & Elizabeth Tatham bought their house at Emberton.
      This James Hale Talbot may have been the godfather of Charles & Elizabeth Tatham's elder surviving son, Meaburn Talbot Tatham. No other reason for the middle name Talbot has been found.
      Charles & Elizabeth Tatham's gg grandson was Charles Meaburn Talbot Tatham b 12 Feb 1961. He took the name Talbot from both sides of his family, after his mother's grandfather Talbot Baines, and his father's grandfather Meaburn Talbot Tatham.
    • Apr 1911 census shows that Charles & Elizabeth had 4 children of whom 3 were then alive & 1 dead. This is incorrect. Their 2nd child Meaburn Collingridge Tatham was born 31 Jul 1856 & died 19 May 1857 aged 9 months. Their 4th child Herbert Francis William Tatham was born 02 Dec 1861 and died in an accident at Chamonix 04 Aug 1909. He was brought back to England and buried in the churchyard at Emberton. In his Recollections, Charles Tatham says of his wife "Her son's death had been a great shock to her, and in many ways affected her brain. After the burial of her dear son at Emberton she seemed, mercifully, to have forgotten that he had died."
    • Diamond Wedding: Tatham-Collingridge - On the 20th July, 1853, at St. Michael's, Highgate, by the Rev. Ralph Tatham, D.D., Master of St. John's College, Cambridge, assisted by the Rev. Thomas Hinly Causton, Charles Meaburn, eldest son of Meaburn Tatham, Esq., of Merton Lodge, Highgate, to Elizabeth, only surviving child of the late Thomas Collingridge, Esq., of Highgate, Middlesex.
