Henry (I) Tatham was born at Frith Street, Soho, in 1770. He became sword cutler & beltmaker in ordinary in 1798. He was in partnership with Joseph Egg as Tatham and Egg, circa 1801 to 1814 and worked on his own at 37 Charing Cross, 1815-1834. He is recorded as making a number of elaborate presentation firearms, including rifles for American Indian chiefs in 1816. See Blackmore, 1999, Page 109.
