My grandmother's maiden name was Toach, she is deceased but it has been suggested to me that many years ago when ancestors came from France their name was changes from La Touche to Toach. They were Heuegonots and changed their name because of the religious climate. Does this fit in with your information at all. I have details of a few people with the name Toach.

Where did the Latouche's originate?

I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT GETTING BACK TO YOU BUT I HAVE NOT VISITED THE ANCESTRY.COM SITE IN QUITE SOME TIME. IN ANSWER TO THE QUESTION YOU POSTED, THE LATOUCHE FAMILY (AT LEAST MY RELATIVES) CAME FROM MARSEILLES, FRANCE. I DON'T KNOW ANYONE WITH THE SURNAME "TOACH" THOUGH.

AS I WAS TOLD BY THE LATE RENFORD BAKER NOW DECEASED. JOHN LATOUCHE WAS THE FIRST BLACK MINISTER OUT OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND TO THE WEST INDIES. ALSO ANOTHER LATOUCHE CAN BE FOUND WRITTEN ABOUT IN A BOOK ENTITLED HENRI CHRISTOPHE, AN HISTORICAL ABOUT A FAMOUS CASTLE IN HAITTI.

Did you know there are La Touche's in Jamaica? The story handed down to me is that the La Touche line branched off into Jamaica as well, and that the first La Touche there was actually De La Touche. He entered into the ministry, and so he had to drop the "De" from the beginning of his name because it was considered a title(hence "La Touche"). I have heard off several variations of La Touche (lestouches, touches, destouches, etc), but i have not heard about the Toach line. I have also heard that the name La Touche was corrupted into Labaudiere/La Baudiere, and that people with that last name are relatives of La Touche. So Toach? Why not!

My g.g.grandmother was FRANCES LYDIA (Fanny) LATOUCHE. According to the 1881 English Census she was born in Derby England about 1840. She married William John Prees (refer Prees surname board) on 21 Dec 1864 in Aston Warwick England. According to the marriage certificate her father was JOHN LATOUCHE, an office clerk.

Before this marriage she had a son THOMAS LATOUCHE born on 21 March 1864 at 8 Court Lichfield St, Birmingham, Warwick, England.

You know something, I was fiddling around on the net one day and ran across the whole Digges La Touche history and was curious about that. My grandfather used to tell us that we were originally something like De La Touche before we became La Touche, but when I saw Digges La Touche I just felt like that was the line we come from. It was interesting to me to note that the Digges La Touche's were men of influence politically and also in the church. It was the church part that caught me because I know many of my La Touche ancestors were in the ministry. I was also struck by the fact that some of the Digges La Touche's cut off the Digges from their last name, which would support what my grandfather told me about the Digges or De having to be cut off of our name because it was considered a title or something like that and ministry men couldn't bear titles. He told me something to that effect. In any case, I bet that James Digges La Touche was my ancestor, too. They teach a seminar in Ireland on the Digges La Touche family-- I even came across a website dedicated to them. I wrote them wanting to know if any of the Digges La Touche's went to Jamaica. They never wrote back. I found a census record one time though-- someone did get married in Jamaica-- I think it was James.

Thanks Shauna. Everything I read about James Digges LaTouche and family found them in Ireland. My great-aunt, Julia Rothwell, was married to Sir James John Digges LaTouche. They met and were married in Canada I believe. She was born a Canadian. He was the Lt. Governor of two provinces of India, 1901-1907 and I have one picture of him and my great-aunt with an entourage. My records show he was born in 1844 and died in 1921. Beyond that, I know nothing about him but it seems he must be from the Irish line though in all my research I found no mention of him in Ireland. The names Digges LaTouche continued to the next generation as a middle name of a great- uncle.
