To the 'ditor of the Journai. Sir.---Can it be proved that the name "Teigh," designating a paris near Oakham, is of Keltic, and British, origin.- that is to say, that it has been mouthed down by wireless'' since the time before the Saxons ever came over from Lower Germany as invaders of the Isle of Britain? The words “Tigh" /& in Irish Gaelic, and "Ty'' in the Kymric speech of Wales, and in the extinct Cornish, mean "house." A "house" is 2 "home," and "ham" is the olders form of that, serving in the names of scores of Eng. Tish viblages. Therefore, "Teigi" may be a way of writing "house" in true British language.

WILLIAM TOLDERVY ON BATII Bir-ra book serving as a supplement to "The Viotionary of National Biography”, is *Select Epitaphs Collected by W. To dervy” (London, 1755). It contains three inscriptions which then existed in the Cathedral Church of Bath, namely, 5 Vol. I, page 69, on Peter Chapman. 1602; VOL II., pages 41-43, on Dame Damaris Masham, 1708; on Anne Finoh, undated.. This fact confirms the impression produced by reading “The History of Two Orphans,” by the same author (1756). that he wag wely aoquainted with Bath. The copy of the latter belonging to the University of Oxford was formerly the property of Dr. J. M. H. Munro, of Bath. It is a rare book, and famous because it eupplied many quotations to "The Oxford Dictionary.” It also is a kind of supplement to theD.N.B.; as it records no less than 230 celobrities, some of whom have their niche in that collection. The frontispiece to this rare book is by Thomas Worlidge, who is recordei in the Dictionary of National Biography as having lived for a long time in Bath. It was engraved by Boitard, who is in the same collection, and who illustrated “The Men and Women that Fly” UN in the "Adventures of Peter Wilkins," by Robert Pattook, in 1751.

It'is likely that this was the William Toldervy who died at Ludlow in 1786, as one finds in "Notes and Queries" of June 24, 1916. Some of the members of his family belonged to the Uni.. versity of Oxford, and one was mayorld of that city. Others were Quakers, and possibly the history of that community in Bath might throw ! more light upon his life than we have at present. He was an antiquary.w a philologist, and a traveller,
