PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU FIND ERRORS

29 Oct 2013

I've added all QUELCH/ SQUELCH burials from the National Burial Index (UK). This means that there will be some duplicate names until I'm able to link them into an existing family. There will be some individuals that I can't link to a family - any help will be appreciated.

This site contains my QUELCH & SQUELCH One Name Study ~ an attempt to record all instances worldwide of this interesting surname & its variants. I am a member of the Guild of One Name Studies (GOONS).

The meaning and origin of the name/s are not recorded in Reaney & Wilson's Dictionary of English Surnames. Although the names are pronounced to rhyme with 'Welsh', the majority of instances are found in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire & Middlesex followed by other counties.

Carol Baxter has published her extensive research of the name - a fascinating read!

I think that SQUELCH is a variation of QUELCH as in many of the early church records either spelling or other variations can be found for the same individual. Some families appear to have adopted the SQUELCH variation, particularly in Surrey. There are fewer SQUELCH individuals than QUELCH.

My Great Great Grandmother was Mary Elizabeth QUELCH who was born in Ipswich Suffolk in about 1815. Her father was William QUELCH, a musician in the Wiltshire Militia and subsequently a Music Master; her mother was Mary IRONS. William was born at Newbury Berkshire and died at Marlborough Wiltshire.

Mary Elizabeth QUELCH, her husband William COLLINS and all but their eldest child, immigrated to Victoria Australia in about 1854 where Mary died the following year.

Please be aware that SOME INFORMATION HAS NOT BEEN VERIFIED yet as the study is is its early days and based mainly on online research, including Indexes & Transcriptions which are helpful guides but must always be checked against original documents where possible. I'm constantly addiing to, revising and correcting this information as I go along. You are very welcome to contact me with additions or corrections.
