    • Quite recently, about Sep 1927 Mr L R Tatham purchased, with a view to his residence there, Pantons, Dallington, Sussex, formerly owned by the Rev Canon Ralph Raisbeck Tatham. Here resided and died the Canon's second surviving daughter, Miss Adeline Tatham. On her death, in 1900, the place was sold out of the family. It is good to know that, by happy chance, the old heritage thus reverts to a scion of the house of Tatham. [Curtis].
