I wondered if anyone on the boards would have any info on a really unusual name I have found in my maternal family tree.......I have managed, over the last day or so, to trace back to 1865. My mother's maiden name was RANKIN, I have gone back through her mother's side and discovered MIDDLETON's, BARHAM's and BROOK's. My great great grandfather is the one with the very unusal name, with different spellings on different census and marriage entries. His name was OLDTHEN BARHAM. Other spellings of the name are OLDERTHEN, OLDTAN and OLDTHAN. Seeing as this is such an unusual name I would like to know where it originated.
