"The spelling of the Futch name and the change to Fudge often has been thought to be the origin of the southern candy the same name as this family remained in the deep south the candy is from the south. It is a mixture of Chocolate from Germany and the sugar cane of the south. The Futch and Fudge family were from Germany so this may be where it came from but there us no hard evidence to support such a tale". - Ron Shipman The Fudge line was prolific, wasn it? I think there are some differences from yours - will be interesting to see how many things are different - if you have the time. We do have different birthplaces for the original John Fudge and I do not have a document in hand that says he was born in Switzerland, only a person who says she has documentation, but I have not seen it. Do you have documentation of the birthplace you have? I do have the ship documentation that said that there were 8 children with John & wife when he arrived. However some sources say his Wife - Mrs. Shitley/Seitly died enroute, so all is speculative.

Complainants are George Carpenter and Ann, his wife; Stephen Hantsberger and Ursilla, his wife; Matthew Hearce and Francis, his wife, daughters and co-heirs of John Shitley, deceased; that John Shitley was an inhabitant of the German Empire, where he died, having a small personal estate, leaving behind him your oratrices, then very young, and ----, his wife, mother of oratrices, and one of the defendants, who by the laws and customs of the empire, possessed herself of the small fortune of her husband. Shortly after the fathers death, the widow, thinking to benefit herself and children, transported herself to America, bringing with her your oratrices and what remained of John Shitleys estate, amounting to near ¹100, Virginia currency, and some time after her arrival married John Fotch, the other defendant, who took possession of all the effects. That as your oratrices grew up, they intermarried (as above) and their husbands frequently applied to the said John Fotsch and wife for the parts due their wives, but obtained only ¹20 Pennsylvania Currency, ¹7 Virginia Currency, and 2 horses, worth ¹14, for which they gave receipt to Fotsch, expecting to receive the remainder in a short time, but now so it is, he refuses to pay them anything more. John Fotchs answer: He married the widow of John Shitley in Germany and not in America, and that on her passage to America she died at Plymouth. He never possessed himself of any part of Shitleys estate, for he died insolvent, except a few trifling bed clothes made use of by his children on shipboard, but he says the grandfather of oratrices, Malchia Shitley, left them goods and chattels which this defendant, marrying their mother, possessed himself of, and before he came to America sold for as much money as came to ¹67 Virginia Currency, of which defendant expended ¹8 for oratrices for provisions and carriage from Switzerland to Holland, where they took shipping, almost 300 miles. He also paid for their passage to America the sum of 16 pistoles, and provisions growing short on shipboard, he was obliged to expend 30 shillings. Having landed in Maryland and intending to settle at Tulpahocken in Pennsylvania, he spent ¹3, 15 for provisions and carriage to that place. That he left Germany in 1744, and about 2 or 3 years after he came to this country he advanced to oratrices ¹25 in Virginia Currency, and two mares of the price of ¹14, 10. [p.496] 31 March 1762. That lately, on 31st March, 1762, he and complainants came to a final settlement and defendant agreed to settle with them ¹42. March 1762. Augustine Price deposes before Felix Gilbert: That is March, 1762, in company with George Carpenter, John Fotch and others, Carpenter and Fotch agreed to leave their dispute to Jacob Pershinger, Jacob Nicholas and Daniel Price, but they could not agree, when they came to an agreement themselves, the only question remaining whether Virginia or Pennsylvania Currency. Daniel Price deposes the same. March 1749. Jacob Miller deposes: That being at the house of John Fotch some time in March, 1749, he heard George Carpenter ask three Gerles, that were heirs to the estate of ----, if they were satisfied with what they had received. Jacob Pershinger deposes like Augustine Price. 1750. Barbary Miller deposes, that being in company with Usley Shutling in 1750, Usley said she had received a mare and some clothes, and was well satisfied. 

Notes: Source: Chalkley, Lyman, _SCOTCH-IRISH SETTLEMENT IN VIRGINIA_, v. 1 (Records of Augusta County, Virginia, 1745-1800), Baltimore, MD: 1912. "The most reliable source of information we have on the immigration and first years in America of John Fudge(9) comes from the records of a lawsuit brought in 1763 before the General Court of Augusta County, Virginia. The suit was brought against John Fudge(9) by three stepdaughters who felt that he had misappropriated funds due them from their fathers estate(1,2). This suit was settled in 1766 by the payment of L42 in Virginia currency to the stepdaughters. Although it was reported in 1990 that the original court records for this case have been lost or stolen, a brief abstract of the court record has been published, and Frank M. Sellers has published further details based on notes taken when he was able to examine the original records about 1980.(1,2) The court records included a deposition by John Fudge(9) that , before departing for America, he had married the widow of John Shitly, and that sometime after their marriage he had sent for the widows three daughters, who had remained in Switzerland. The family then boarded ship in Holland for the voyage to America.(1) John Fudge(9) goes on to state that the ship made a landing (presumably for provisions and permission to bring immigrants to America) in Plymouth, England, where the widow died. John Fudge(9) continued the voyage to America, accompanied by three stepdaughters, and probably by children of his own, either from his marriage to the widow, or from a previous marriage. The Shitly daughters were Ann, who later married George Carpenter; Ursilla, who married Stephen Huntsberger; and Frances, who married Matthew (alias Martin) Heorce.(1) Upon arrival in America, the ship landed in Maryland and John Fudge(9) made arrangement for transportation to the Tulpehocken area of Lancaster County (now Berks County), Pennsylvania, where he intended to settle.(2) He found this area to be overcrowded, and he was unable to purchase suitable land there. How he spent the years from 1744 to 1750 is not known, but he stated in his deposition that he was in Virginia within two or three years after arriving in Pennsylvania, and he probably married his wife Katrina while still in Pennsylvania.(2) Bertha Lewis Clark and Frank M. Sellers both concluded that John Fudge(9) was Johan Peter Fuchs who immigrated to Philadelphia on 20 Oct 1744 aboard the Ship Phoenix from Rotterdam, Holland, with a stop at Cowes, England.(2,3,4,5) On the same ship as Johan Peter Fuchs there was a Cunradt Fuchs conjectured to have been his brother.(4,5) There are difficulties, however, with this interpretation of the surviving passenger ship lists. No use of the surname Fuchs (or its English translation Fox) has been cited for John Fudge(9) after his arrival in America; other spellings of his surname which do appear in early records are Fotch, Fotsch, Votsch, Futch and Fuge.(1,6) also, one must keep in mind that John Fudge(9) himself stated that he had landed in 1744 in Maryland on a ship which had stopped at Plymouth, England. Plymouth and Cowes are about ten miles apart, with Plymouth on the main island of Britain, and Cowes on the Isle of Wight. Church records in Hallau, Switzerland, show that Hans Fotsch, a weaver, left the locality for Pennsylvania in 1744 with his wife, five children and three step-children.(7) Hallau is situated in an orchard and general farming region of Schaffhausen, the northernmost Swiss canton, within five miles of the German border. "Hans" is a German equivalent of "John", and the coincidence of name, number of step-children, and arrival date make it clear that Hans Fotsch was the same man as the John Fudge(9) who settled in Virginia, and whose surname appears in various records with the spellings Fotsch, Votsch, Fotch, Futch, Fudge and Fodge.(1,6) Since many ship passenger lists have not survived, identifying the ship on which John Fudge(9) arrived may never be possible; doing so, however, is really not very important except as a means of ascertaining his place of origin, and date of immigration, both of which seem settled by the remarkable agreement of the Swiss records with his own deposition. The description given in John Fudge(9)s deposition of the travels of the widow and her daughters suggest that his marriage to the widow may have been of relatively short duration.(2) The fact that he had fathered five children before leaving for Pennsylvania, leads one to suspect that he had lost a wife before he married the widow.(1) Since we have no record of when John Fudge(9) and the widow Shitly were married, we cannot say whether any children were born to that marriage. After arriving in America, John Fudge(9) fathered additional children by his wife Katrina. By 1750, John Fudge(9) had reached the area at the foot of Massanutten Mountain (then called Peaked Mountain), on the Shenandoah River, south of the present town of McGaheysville.(2) There he purchased 300 acres of land from David Magert (believed to have been his father-in-law) and Daniel Weitreith.(1) In 1764 he patented an additional 290 acres adjoining the first parcel.(2) Although in Augusta County at the time of purchase, these parcels were in Rockingham County after 1778. John Fudge(9) sold portions of this land consisting of 236 acres each to his sons Conrad Fudge and John Fudge(8) in 1771.(6) He sold the remaining portion in 1784 to Peter Kesling, husband of his son Davids widow, under the condition he and Katrina(9) would continue to have the use of the house for the rest of their lives.(2) John Fudge(9) was dead by 24 May 1784. His widow Katrina(9) renounced the provisions of his will, and received instead the use of one-third his estate for life, as allowed by Virginia law.(2) There is also a record John Fudge(9) purchased land in 1777 on Christians Creek, near Staunton, Virginia, but there is no indication he ever lived on that land.(10) The Daughters of the American Revolution recognize John Fudge(9) as having performed patriotic service during the Revolutionary War, and his descendants are therefore eligible for D.A.R. or S.A.R. membership.(11) In one reference John Fudge(9) is listed as a member of Capt. Francis Kirkleys Company of Augusta County Militia on 30 Oct 1761 and, in another reference, as in Capt. Johnsons Company, Augusta County Militia.(12,13) On 19 Oct 1795 John Fudge(8) purchased 200 acres on the North Fork of the Holston River in Rich Valley, Washington County, for [script L with slash thru it is preceding #] L810.(14) "
