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.
