Origins of surname

This is one of the commonest surnames of Irish origin. It is derived from the Gaelic donn, meaning brown, and cath, meaning battle, and was originally a personal name Downcha.

Early records

William Henry and his wife Margaret Waters, who married in Ireland in 1846, came to Jersey later that year and their first son, Andrew John, was born in St Helier in December. Seven of their grandchildren fought in the Army in the Great War, and one died of tuberculosis on the battlefield.
