Origins of surname

As might be expected, this surname is derived from the profession of roof thatcher.

Early records

The family can be traced back in Jersey to mason Charles Thatcher, of Bridport, Dorset, who came to Jersey shortly before the 1841 census. He returned to Dorset in 1843 to marry Sarah Gillard and then they settled in Jersey and brought up a family of eight children. John's family can be traced back to John Thetcher, born in about 1718 in Devon. He married Hannah Cross in September 1743 in Exeter, six months after the birth of their son, also John.
