Fish Genealogy & History

Fish is an Anglo-Saxon name derived from Old English fisc, meaning fish. Thus it was an occupational name for a fisherman or fish-seller, and the Fish family is first found in Yorkshire, where they had lands and an estate in feudal times. The first recording in Fish family history is for Ernis Fish in 1202 in Lincolnshire. Fish genealogy in America began in New England in the early 1630s. Fish can be an Americanized spelling of the German Fisch; the German Fisch originated in Saxony and has variations Fischer, Fisher, and Fisscher. Curiously, the Fisch coat of arms contains a fish while the Fish one does not.
