Ritchie Genealogy & History

Ritchie is an Anglo-Scottish surname, originally from German. It is a diminutive of Richard, or "ric-hard", meaning brave power in Old German. The Normans brought it to the British Isles as Ricard, and it took the prefix Mac (as in Mac Ritchie) in the Highlands, while retaining the original form in southern Scotland and bordering English counties. Ritchie family history begins with Michael Rechy, enrolled in the Medieval Records of Inverness in 1350. Ritchie genealogy includes some famous people, like four-term Maryland Governor Albert Ritchie, Australian Admiral Chris Ritchie, prominent British director Guy Ritchie, and John Simon Ritchie, who was better known as Sid Vicious.
