George Christopher Fritche, Derbyshire
« on: Saturday 02 July 16 05:04 BST (UK) »
Hi all, does anyone possibly have any information on George Christopher Fritche, born presumably in Derbyshire around the 1770ís? His wife Isabella Froude was born April 18, 1775, daughter of Reverend John Froude senior. Their daughter Isabella Rosalind Fritche married Major Samuel Blythe in Derby, Derbyshire, and moved to India. I'm a descendant of this family through an illegitimate lovechild of Samuel Fritche Blythe Jr. also an army officer, while he was stationed in Ireland.

Thanks very much-
Nick

Hi Nick,
Have you tried Family Search ? They have parish records for Derbyshire.
You will have to join...it's free... to see the images.
This link will take you to George Christopher's baptism.

Awesome, thank you Rolnora. I'll need to use Family Search more often. :) There's a marriage record for George Fritche and Elizabeth Mills in All Saints Derby in 1765, I guess George Christopher's parents. George Sr. is called "Trumpet of the Blues." I'm guessing that's a military thing. I wonder if he was from Derby then or moved there with the army.

Hi Nick,
I'm glad your finding Family Search useful :)
Must say I'm intrigued by " trumpet of the blues  ???
Have you found anything about it anywhere?
If not it might be worth posting a message on the military board

The Derbyshire Blues were a regiment formed to oppose Bonnie Prince Charlie. If you watch Outlander then it would be the bit after Prestonpans and before Culloden. The Jacobites turned around and headed back to Scotland.
