GOUCHER Family History

This curious and interesting surname has two possible interpretations; firstly, it may be of early medieval English origin, and developed from a nickname for someone thought to have a particularly cheerful appearance, a good aspect. The derivation for this source is from the Middle English "gode", good, with "chere", from the Old French "chier", face. Secondly, the surname may be of medieval Scottish or English origin, deriving from a nickname for an elderly and venerable gentleman, from, in England, the Middle English "gode", good, wuth "sir(e)", a form of title of respect, and in Scotland, from the Old Scots "gudsyr, gudschir" (pronounced "gutscher"); both English and Scottish terms were generally taken to mean "grandfather".

I was looking to trace my great uncle Robert Goucher's grave (Wife Isa Goucher) both deceased. They lived in Castle Bellingham, Co LOUTH, IRELAND. Isa came back to Ballygawley, Co Tyrone in the early 60's.

In his will he leaves some money to Catherine Goucher in Castlebellingham, County Louth, Ireland. I’m trying to find out if there are any Gouchers there now. Thanks


My great grandfather, William James Goucher, was born in Ireland in 1859. He emigrated to the US in 1879, died in Florida in 1939.
