I have traced my PETCH antecedants back to one WILLIAM PETCH born circa 1711. His wife's name is ELIZABETH (possibly MAUGHAM)married circa 1735.They had 5 children all born in KEDDINGTON, LINCS. (a small town outside of LOUTH.Childrens details available to if interested.
Also looking for HILL WOLLEY PETCH baptised Jan 14, 1792 in LOUTH.
Any information greatfully rec'd.Also have a large file on PETCH's so may be able to help with your searches.
