Dutch Family HistoryThis interesting surname originated from two possible sources. Firstly, it may be a variant of "Duche", itself from "Duchier", which is a French occupational name for a tavern-keeper, from an aphetic form of the old French "conduchier" (from the late Latin word "conducarius", to conduct, manage). Secondly, the name may have originated as a nickname given to immigrant Dutch weavers who were brought into England largely by Edward 111 to teach their craft and expand the English cloth trade, which became the source of so much wealth in the middle ages.
