TEIGH : ITS ORIGIN.

To the X'ditor of the Journai.
Sir,--Can it be proved that ihe name "Teigh,
designating a parish near Oakham, is of Keltic, and
British, origin. - that is to sav, that it has been
mouthed down by wireless” since the time before
the Saxons ever came over from Lower Germany as
invaders of the Isle of Britain? The words “Tigh"
in Irish Gaelic, and “Ty in the Kymric speech of
Wales, and in the extinct Cornish, mean "house.
A "house” is a “home," and "ham" iš the older
form of that, serving in the names of scores of Eng.
zish viblages. Therefore, "Teigh" may be a way of
writing "house" in true British language.

WILLIAM TOLDERVY ON BATI.
gir-ra book serving as a supplement to "The
Piotionary of National Biography", is *Select
Epitaphs Collected by W. To dervy” (London,
1755). It contains three inscriptions which then
aristed in the Cathedral Church of Bath, namely,
Vol. I., page 69, on Peter Chapman.

1602; VOL
II., pages 41-43, on Dame Damaris Masham,
1708; on Anne Finoh, undated.. This fact con-
firms the impression produced by reading "The
Listory of Two Orphans," by the same author
(1756). that he wag well aoquainted with Bath.
The copy of the latter belonging to the Univer-
sity of Oxford was formerly the property
Dr. J. M. H. Munro, of Bath. It is a rare book,
and famous because it supplied many quotations
to "The Oxford Dictionary." It also is a kind of
supplement to theD.N.B.; as it records no less than
230 celebrities, some of whom hare their niche
in that collection. The frontispiece to this rare
book is by Thomas Worlidge, who is recorded in
the Dictionary of National Biography as having
lived for a long time in Bath. It was engraved,
by Boitard, who is in the same collection, and
who illustrated “The Men and Women that Fly”
in the Adventures of Peter Wilkins,” by Robert

It is likely that this was the William Toldervy
who died at Ludlow

in 1786, as

finds in "Notes and Queries" of June 24, 1916. Some of the members of his family belonger to the Uni. versity of Oxford, and one was mayorets of that city. Others were Quakers, and possibly the history of that community in Bath might throw more light upon his life than we have at present. He was

a philologist, and a traveller. The Bath Herolehi
