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

Flitchnoe Early Origins



The surname Flitchnoe 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 Flitchnoe was first referenced in the year 1221, when Richard de Flecho held estates in Warwickshire.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Flitchnoe or a variant listed above: George Flecknoe, who was naturalized in Indiana at the end of the 19th century.
