The settlement of Tidenham is a cluster of houses near to the Parish Church. There was a school until 1953, the school building is now a dwelling.
The large house, Tidenham Manor, was destroyed by fire in 1968 and after being ruined for over thirty years has now been rebuilt.
The manor was the home of the Morgan family who gained ownership through the marriage of Charles Henry Morgan, the vicar of Tidenham, with Frances Williams who had inherited the house under a settlement with her sister Temperance Maria and her husband John Buckle. The estate also included Philpott’s Court and Wallhope Farm.
The house then passed to their son Thomas Henry who had married Christiana Brice of Bristol and Frenchay.
Maria Christana Brice was baptised in Winterbourne parish Church in February 1799, her father Edward was a solicitor and the Brice family were also sugar importers and members of the Merchant Venturers.
