Fitches surname from Barton mills/Tuddenham way
« on: Wednesday 27 December 17 21:43 GMT (UK) »
My family name is Fitches (not Fitch) on my Grandfathers side. His family all originated from the Barton mills and Tuddenham areas in Suffolk. I have traced the name back to the 1700ís - Thomas Fitches married Pheobe Jackson. My family tree is a work in process but I love the research. Would love to know if there are any other Fitches out there.

Hi there bevshortt.
My 2x Great Grandmother was a Fitches, she was called Alice Fitches and was born in Barton Mills in 1890. I live in the West Suffolk area and have found her grave, as well as a few more Fitches. Alice died in 1973, my Dad knew her when he was growing up and gave my sister the Christian name 'Alice' also. Did you used to come to Tuddenham or other villages around here when you were younger?

Kind Regards, Tom
