The ancient name of Tattcher finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a person who worked as the thatcher. This surname was a derivative of the Old English word paeccan which literally meant to cover. The meaning later changed and referred to the task of thatching roofs.

Tattcher Early Origins



The surname Tattcher was first found in Essex where they held a family seat from very ancient times, before and after the Conquest in 1066.

Tattcher 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 Tattcher family name include Thatcher, Thacker, Thaxter and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, 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 Tattcher surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Francis Thatcher, who settled in Barbados in 1678 with his wife Mary and son Samuel; Joe and Mary Thatcher, who settled in Virginia in 1635; Sylvester Thatcher, who settled in Virginia in 1635.
