Family Tree in NORTH AMERICA

After scouring North America for almost 15 years now, we have found that just two families account for 99% of Scatch.rds who immigrated here from England, even though 57 varieties of the name are said to exist.    Both were originally penned, of course, in the 18th and 19th centuries when literate church clergy in the West Riding district of Yorkshire, England, wrote down the names of parish members for them during christenings, marriages and funerals, based on what they heard.

The two spellings (in order of frequency) are Scatchard and Scatcherd.    Furthermore, none of us studying this were surprised to find them inter-changable over time.   From one generation to the next ARDs moved to ERDs and/or vice-versa.   But there can be no doubt that, if you go back far enough, it is all proven to be the same family.   Click on the names at the top to jump to the Tree of your choice.

Tree members, please send over any additions or corrections AND any interesting facts about relative's lives. As you can see, we still have a lot of information missing.
