Origins of surname

There are two possible derivations of this English surname. The most likely is an occupational name for a 'caulker', who sealed the seams of ships with a mixture of rope fibres and pitch. Alternatively it may be a regional name for someone from Picardy in Northern France, a region adjoining Normandy, from which many of William the Conquerors followers came, thus introducing this name into England after the 1066 invasion

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of Thomas Pitcher in St Helier in 1845. He was born in 1837, the son of Josiah and Jane Richard
