The surname Flitchmoe is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It is derived from "Flecknoe," the name of a hamlet in the parish of Wolfhampcote, Warwickshire.

Flitchmoe Early Origins



The surname Flitchmoe was first found in Warwickshire, where the hamlet of Flecknoe is located. It is likely that the name was first borne by landowners in this region. Saxon influence in England diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066; the language of the courts was French for the next three centuries, and the Norman ambience prevailed. However, many Saxon surnames survived, and the family name Flitchmoe was first referenced in the year 1221, when Richard de Flecho held estates in Warwickshire.

Flitchmoe Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Flitchmoe family name include Fleckno, Flecknoe, Flitchmoe, Fletchmo, Flicknoe and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Flitchmoe surname or a spelling variation of the name include: George Flecknoe, who was naturalized in Indiana at the end of the 19th century.
