SCATCHARD   or   SCATCHERD

"Scatch.rd Cousins!"

We, the purveyores of the Scatch.rd family trees need your help. We are not hearing from anyone out there and it becomes very difficult to keep the tree current under these circumstances. So please, if you know about any births, deaths, marriages, location changes, etc., in your branch of the tree, please take a minute and email us with particulars. We want to keep the trees as updated as possible. Best regards, Steve and Jay.

After scouring North America for almost 10 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.
