To all the correspondents interested in Oatham. My interest is with Henry Oatham ( born in Essex) the Housepainter from South View Cottages Hackney aged 57 in the 1881 census. He was married to Mary Ann Jones. Henry is my great, great garndfather. In 1858 He and his wife were living in Mile End in London where they had a daughter Selina Alice Oatham. Selina married James Norton Cadby. They had Edith Selina Cadby who is my paternal grandmother and who married John Sidney Lovell. If anyone has more information I would be pleased to hear from them. Like other correspondents I too would like to know who Henry Oathams' parents were.
