RICHES Family HistoryThis unusual and interesting surname has three origins; firstly, it may be of Old French origin, from a nickname for a wealthy person, deriving from the Middle English "riche", a development of the Old French "riche" meaning rich, wealthy; the term was introduced into England after the Conquest of 1066. Secondly, it may be a patronymic of the medieval given name "Rich", a short form of the personal name "Richard", composed of the Old German elements "ric", power, with "hard", hardy, brave, strong.
