I haven't verified it but I think my earliest Hatch is Thomas, b. 1476 from Devonshire. My immigrant and trustiest sourced is Thomas Hatch, b. abt 1603 near Biddenden, Kent, England, and came to Barnstable, (Massachusetts).
Sounds like we're all getting desperate!
I'm just off to Devon until after Vicky's baby is born - she's now overdue and having problems coping with 4 year old Bruno so I can be of help there. Will take my laptop with me and hopefully find out how to use it down there, time allowing, so might be able to keep up to date with emails. Ann x
