Re: Tiedemann/Tidman names

I like these explanations of 'Tidman from Tithman' - In Celtic times, the Brythonic (P-Celtic) pronunciation of 'd' was 'th'. One of my ancestors was a Tidman from near Salisbury, Wiltshire, but feel sure the origins were probably Anglo-Saxon Mercia (West Midlands), having looked at surname distribution maps. There is a Tidworth near Amesbury, which may have similar origins.
