Re: Fitch Castle revisited

Thank you very much for responding to my query. I knew that Marc had done a tremendous amount of research into the Fitch family and that it now resides in the Essex Records Office. I have one of the Pedigree charts passed down from my great grandfather, Walter Fitch and also a booklet representing the detective agency of Herbert Trevor.Walter Fitch is Frederick's nephew.
You've correct my assumption that the pedigree was commissioned by Herbert Jones Fitch. There are penned in additions on my copy of the pedigree.
In regards to the Fitch Castle- I do know it doesn't exist but it is surprising to me to see how many think it does and I wanted to write a bit of the history of how the idea began and the proofs against it's existence. However, the discussion didn't take place on this forum as I had hoped.
How are you related to the Fitch family? Are we cousins? I would like to do more corresponding with you if you wouldn't mind- on or off this forum..
