* Fenchel / Finical Family Genealogy*

Updated September 26, 2003


In researching the FINICAL family, I was provided precise information that the name was originally spelled FENCHEL. My direct ancestor, only one of the many members of this family immigrated to the United States from Germany, arriving at the port of Baltimore, Maryland on September 30, 1829. They settled in Ohio and eventually some of his descendants migrated to other states.

FENCHEL are “Schwaben”, in English “Suebians”. this early German tribe or nation had its own language and customs (much like the better known Bavarians). The capital of Schwaben is Stuttgart, Germany. They resided primarily in the southern part of Germany in the Black Forest area.

The name FENCHEL means the merchant of spices. Named after spice plants which was pronounced in the medieval German “Venichel”. It comes from the Latin, “Foeniculum”.

The information contained in this research is not strictly the Fenchel / Finical family. It is included for the benefit of other researchers and represents my personal Pedigree. My thanks go to those individuals that provided information to me so this project was possible, it is far from complete and is still ongoing.
