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.

    I am seeking any information on the family of Price’s living at Tidenham in the 1800’s. My grandmother was Grace Mary Price born at Chepstow on 14th April 1880, her father was Albert Price and her mother was Alice Price (maiden name white) Albert was from Woolaston. Grace had seven brothers and two sisters, her oldest brother was Alfred White believed to have been born out of wedlock. One of her other brothers was Gideon Price who was the landlord for several years at The Red Lion pub at Blaisdon. Also one of her sisters was Lilly Price who married a Fred Watts and ran a farm near Newnham.

    I list below her other brothers and sister:-
    Stanley, Evan, Allan, Eli, William & Eliza May.

    Any history would be helpful and most appreciated as I am trying to write up some of the family history of my late grandmother.

    Yours sincerely,
    Bob Embling.

      my g-g-grandmother Elizabeth Price, daughter of George Price and Mary (?) was born abt April 1829 in Woolaston (baptised 10th May 1829 at Avington). She married John Morrish 14 Apr 1850 at Wollaston, and died 24 Apr 1919 in Leominster. I am wondering if we are connected to your family – do you have these names in earlier generations of your family tree?
      best regards, Lesley

    I would like to contact Liz McBride about those named on the Tidenham War Memorial tablets. The email address I had for her in 2014 appears to be discontinued?

    I recently discovered that my maternal great grandfather, Isaac Ball, was convicted for stealing wheat from a farmer in Tidenham in 1847. This was a time of great unrest over the Corn Laws, when the price of wheat was prohibitively expensive, so I’m guessing he was just doing what he had to to feed his family. Anyway, he served twelve months in the Penitentiary House at Gloucester, discharged 4 Jan 1849. I’m just wondering if the farm where he stole the wheat, Wallop Farm, Tidenham, still exists, and if there is any way I can get hold of a copy of the trial transcript, plus any other info that might be pertinent. Thanks!
