- some of the Atte Hacches found in the hundred of Calehill, in the subsidies of 1327-8 and 1372-3. These subsidies do not name the parishes in which the persons assessed lived; but the hundred of Calehill comprised the parishes of Charing, Westwell, Egerton, Little Chart, and Pluckley, as well as parts of several other parishes. Contemporary with the above John at Hecche of Sellinge were several of the name in Charing, probably his brothers and cousins, who left wills not given in this article. The mention of his lands in Westwell and Charing places his origin in that ancient Atte Hacche family, and he is the first of the name in Sellinge or vicinity of whom record has been found. His will names his wife Agnes and three sons.

John "at Hecche" of Sellinge, Kent, England was undoubtedly descended from the Atte Hacches found in the hundred of Calehill in the subsidies of 1327-8 and 1372-3. The hundred of Calehill comprised parishes of Charing, Westwell, Egerton, Little Chart, Pluckley and others.
John at Hecche is first of his name in Sellinge vicinity. Three sons are named in his Will: Thomas, b. about 1442, John b. about 1444 and William b. about 1446.
The Hatch family has lived in the county of Kent, England since, at least, the 14th century. The family name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon noun, haec (Middle English - hacche), later hatch, meaning a gate or wicket. The surname appears as early as 1327-8. The first form was atte Hacche and undoubtedly was assumed by some man living near some gate or wicket such as an entrance to a village church yard or ground of a manor house.
