Thanks should go out to Jon Hamm, for taking the time to photograph the Ham village.
I chose to put these pictures together into a You Tub Video, so that I could take the time to put together a presentation of the relevance of the Ham surname in the area of Taunton.
I hope that you enjoy the video.
