This page is the entry point into many of my findings as I have been researching history surrounding the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware as well as with the HITCH family in America. It includes the line of Adam Hitch (1658/59-1731) of Somerset Co., Maryland; Christopher Hitch (1710-1778) of Prince Georges Co., Maryland and Fauquier Co., Virginia; as well as several other Hitch lines who arrived in this country in the 19th century. I have included some textual material, photographs, and other historical items of interest. Be sure not to miss my section on Hitch family signatures. Additionally, check out the Eastern Shore History area for 1876 Maps of the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Enjoy and if you have any comments, questions or contributions, please drop me a note at
