Simon Finch was the first Finch to step foot on American soil.  He made a great deal of money but was not happy so he got married.  He had 8 daughters and one son.  The son's name was "Welcome Finch."  This is a clever little twist that Ms. Lee puts in the story.  After 8 daughters a son was truely welcome in the Finch household, so they simply named him Welcome Finch.  This part of the story can be found in chapter 9 on page 88, of "To Kill A Mockingbird."
