Origin of "Eaches" family name?
Posted by: Alan Terlep Date: October 14, 1999 at 14:45:14

I am a member of a group that researches medieval names for people who do medieval living history (it's something like a cross between Civil War re-enactment and a Renaissance Festival). Someone mailed us recently and said he wanted to use the name "Justin Eaches" for a character from the
time of Queen Elizabeth I--late 1500's.

Much to our surprise, we were unable to find any reference to "Eaches" in any of our books on Renaissance English names! So we're trying to find out where "Eaches" came from, and why it's easy to find in 1800 but apparently invisible in 1600. Any help would be appreciated.
