    Notes 
    • Unmarried [11]
    • Two old Miss Tathams (third cousins of my father) [in fact his own third cousins] who lived in Cheltenham in the days of the then famous tragic actor Macready, were acquaintances of an Admiral Tatham, who also then was living or staying in Cheltenham, of Hornby Castle, Lancashire. He was known as the "Tough Old Admiral", because after much litigation he won the case of Tatham v. Foster in the House of Lords, and so became the owner of Hornby Castle on the borders of Yorkshire and Lancashire ? I think in Lancashire there is a village and rectory called Tatham, and a manor called Hornby Tatham. The Admiral was of a very old family dating, I am told, from the reign of King John; a Mesne Lord called John de Tatham is mentioned in Domesday Book as being empowered to fix some property boundaries,
      The Admiral told these Miss Tathams that the said Robert Tatham, who lived in the reign of King James I, was of the same family as his. A saying of the Tathams was, according to my Father; "Kings are descended from us, not we from Kings". I do not know what is meant by it. The Motto on the Tatham crest is "Veritatem" the accusative case of "Veritas" Truth.
      The above mentioned old ladies used to say that some of our ancestors were in the battle of Flodden Field.
