Origins of surname

This name either referred to someone who worked in a kitchen, or, more likely, was derived from the Anglo-Saxon word cyta = 'wild cat', and indicated someone who behaved like this animal

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the marriage of Charles Kitcher, son of George, to Marie Adelaide Maunowin, daughter of Pierre, in St Brelade, in 1848. Their first son, Charles, was baptised in the parish later that year, and four further children were baptised in St Peter in the 1850s
