There are a lot of Ketchells in the pontefract area of yorkshire (england)
do any of you know if you originated from this area?
did you know that ketchell means "the baker of small cakes". In the middle ages ketchells used to bake these small cakes for the poor in almes houses (houses for the poor)hence the meaning.
