MINCHER Family History

This very unusual name which is found in the spelling of Minchae, Mincher, Minsher, Mincer and Minchir, is a developed form of the Old French given name "Dominque". The derivation was from Dominique to the nickname form "Minque" and hence to the Anglicized "Minch" circa 1400. The "modern" name forms are a development of the late Medieval "Minchard", the suffix "ard" translating as "Little", but more specifically "son of Minch", a form of patronymic. Early recordings include Rebecca Minchir, in Stepney (1683) and John Mincher of Clerkenwell in 1715.
