Finch Genealogy & History

Finch is an Anglo-Saxon name, but there is debate about just where the name came from. One possibility is that Finch family history began with people who bred and sold finches, thus making Finch an occupational name. Another is that, because finches are colorful songbirds, the name arose as a nickname for someone who was cheerful or a good singer. American Finch genealogy includes Stanley Wellington Finch, the first director of what would become the FBI; and Peter Finch, the lead actor in the movie Network. The Finch motto is "nil conscire sibi," which means "to have a conscience free from guilt."
