    Notes 
    • Born 13 July, 1844, at Wandsworth; Land Agent and Surveyor; Fellow of the Surveyors' Institution, London. He went to Australia in 1865, and had a cotton plantation there for a time. He returned to England, studied for the profession of Surveyor, first under Dr. John Gibson, then as Resident Agent on the Milton Abbey Estate, Blandford, Dorset, and finally was a pupil of Mr. P. D. Tuckett, of 10, Old Broad Street, City, a Member of the Council of the Surveyors' Institution. Later, he assisted Mr. J. Nornham Penfold. At the time of his election as Associate of the Surveyors' Institution in 1870, Mr. Tatham was assisting Messrs. P. & G. Chapman, 14 Cockspur Street, S.W. He was elected a Fellow of the Surveyors' Institution in 1878, and at this date had been in practice at 27, Southampton Buildings, Chancery Lane. He retired from his membership of the Institution in 1894-5, when his address was 63, New Broad Street, E.C., and Romford, Essex; information supplied by A. Goddard Esq., Secretary to the Surveyors' Institution, 12, Great George Street, Westminster, 13 July, 1916. He practised in London as a Surveyor for about 21 years. In 1893, he went with his wife and dau. for a trip to Tasmania for a little over two years. Then for 18 months he had a house near London. From 1897, he lived at The Old Curatage, Hardingham, Attleboro', near Wymondham, Norfolk [Curtis]
    • Writing 5 Feb., 1903, to the Rev. T. Crowther Tatham, M.A., Sunny Brow, co. Durham, - Vicar from 1889 until about 1912, when he retired in his 72nd year, to 49, Compton Road, Sherwood, co. Nottingham, b. 1844, at Nottingham, but not of the Durham family of Tatham, - George H. Tatham says that he has in his possession a Queen Anne Coffee-pot, which is of considerable antiquity and belonged to his great-grandfather Ralph [Tatham, of Stockton, 1732-1779, who m. Elizabeth Bloxham], which was given him by his aunt Elizabeth [b.1800, eldest child of the said Ralph Tatham's eldest son, Thomas Tatham], upon which are engraved the Bloxham and Tatham Arms. [...] "The true Tatham crest is a bare arm, grasping a quiver of arrows, and not that of a knight in armour clad. Motto: 'VERITATEM'.". This is evidently G. H. Tatham's rough description of the crest as depicted in the Chippendale armorial book-plate of the Sunderland physician, Dr. Ralph Tatham, 1702-1752. [Curtis]
