- Raiph Tatam, No. 1, of Ferryhill, pa. of Merrington, or Kirk Merrington, near Bishop Auckland, co. Durham:-
As "Ra. Tatom; Goods, 3£ each. 8s. Cess each," he appears in the Durham Subsidy Roll for Kirk Merrington, in 1624; he was probably born, therefore, not later than 1600, and if, as we here assume, he was father of Robert Tatam, No.l, several decades earlier.
Tending to confirm this is the discovery, April 1921, by Mr. H. M. Wood, B.A., in the Registers of Brancepeth, a parish adjoining to Kirk Merrington, of the following baptism, dated 6 Jan., 1599/1600, "Thomas, son of Raphe Taittom, of Whinnelaw." [Not located]
In 1635, he gave £10. to the poor of Merrington. This is recorded in that year, and again referred to in the Merrington Churchwardens' Annals for 1642.
He was bur. 10 May, 1649, at Kirk Merrington, leaving by his wife Dorothie ..., who was bur. at the same place, 26 March, 1637/8, besides the son Thomas above mentioned, and ? other issue, a son. [Curtis]
