Fermanagh County. N. Ireland.
The story goes that a John Chideock, who was a direct descendant
of Henry VII, came from England to Fermanagh County Ireland
around 1600. His son, Henry, started writing the name as Chittick,
as that was closest to the way the people in Fermanagh pronounced
Our direct ancestor Hugh Chittick, was born in Fermanagh County,
Ireland as were many Chitticks. We haven't been able to make
our connection to Henry or John as of yet, but it's there somewhere.
Hugh came across the pond, as did others, to come to live in
America during the Potato Famine during the mid-1800's in Ireland.
Same came to America & Canada, only to continue their travels
to Australia, and New Zealand, among other ports of call.

Tell me about it:
The area around Lower Lough Erne boasts a rich combination of
natural and historic sights. From pre-Christian times, settlers
sought the security offered by the lake's forests and inlets.
Exploring Lough Erne by land or by boat is a delightful experience.
In summer, ferries serve several islands and cruisers are available
to hire. The limestone hills of west Fermanagh contain many
interesting cave systems. Explore this delightful county at
your leisure, stopping off in one of the many welcoming towns
Enniskillen, County Fermanagh
The most remarkable natural feature in County Fermanagh is
the River Erne, which winds through the centre of the county.
It expands into an extensive, island-studded lake split into
two parts - Upper and Lower Lough Erne - by the town of Enniskillen.
This bustling regional centre boasts a great range of shops
and pubs, but still manages to retain a sense of traditional
charm and character. Enniskillen's location between the two
lochs gives it an almost continental feel. Spectacular Enniskillen
Castle was once the stronghold of the Maguire chieftains,
and later became an army barracks.
