Tathams of Lickfold

I don’t know if you or the Society will be able to help me on this one..

There has been an announcment in the Telegraph for a service of thanksgiving in Midhurst church on 12/4/17 for a Nigel Tatham. It is not a very common name and there used to be a Canon and Mrs Tatham who lived at Jocks Lodge, Lickfold. He died before I was born. I was really too young to remember much about her, only that she gave me a very tiny jug and told my mother that I was to look after it. I have certainly done that as I still have it. I was six when we moved from Colliers Cottages, Lickfold to Fernhurst.

Just a thought. I wondered if Nigel was any relation

Kind regards

  1. Hi Kathleen

    The St Peter’s burial register (which you can search on this website) shows the burials of Edward Henry Ralph Tatham of Locks Lodge in 1938 and of Florence Eleanor Tatham in 1961. These appear to be the Canon & Mrs Tatham to whom you refer.

    There has been no reference to Tatham in any edition of Lodsworth’s Outlook magazine in its 50+ years since 1963. And there is no mention of Tatham in our database of Lodsworth clergy.

    Maybe someone else can help.
