Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized.

Known variations of the Itchingham family name include Echingham, Etchingham, Echington, Etchington, Ichingham, Itchingham, Itchington, Ichington, Eckingham and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Itchingham family to immigrate North America: James Etchingham who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1860.
