    Notes 
    • The name of Dr. Ralph Tatham's first wife is still a matter for consideration. While in Surtees' Hist. of Durham, it is given as Sarah Robinson, in a Pedigree of Robinson of Middle Herrington, co.Pal. of Durham, signed by Fras. Townsend, Windsor Herald, 1808, in the Surtees Collections, kindly lent to the Compiler of these Notes by Mr. H. M. Wood, it is Sarah's elder sister Mary* who is named, whose "first husband was Sedgwick of Sunderland".
      The following abstract of the Doctor's Will, made by the Compiler from a contemporary copy placed at his disposal by the courtesy of M.T. Tatham, Esq., M.A., twice mentions the first wife's name as Mary; perusal of this Will seems greatly to strengthen the view that Dr. Tatham's first wife was, as Townsend's Pedigree states, Mary, elder sister of Sarah Robinson, daus. of Ralph Robinson and Mary Hutton.
      *By her first husband, George Sidgwick, gent., of Sunderland, where bur. 1726, m. 28 June, 1716, at Bishopwearmouth, this Mary Robinson had a dau., Elizabeth Sidgwick, who was bur, 25 Feb., 1720/1, at Sunderland.
      Two of this name, George Sidgwick, appear in the Sunderland Burial Regs, for 1726; and it is difficult to decide which of these two is the "George Sidgwick, gent," who m. Mary Robinson, as the description "gentleman" is consistent with the occupations of both. "1726, Ap.l, George Sidgwick, Custom House Officer;" and "1726, June 26, George Sidgwick, Fitter"
