Simon Finch was the patriarch of the Finch family, and he established himself in Alabama after a time spent in England. He was an apothecary (what in modern day would be a pharmacist) and a fur trader.

We know that Simon Finch establish the Finch farm in Alabama, which was another way in which he made his living for his wife and family. In all, there was Simon, his wife, a daughter named Alexandra, and two male sons named Jack (a doctor) and Atticus Finch which, as we know is a lawyer.  The name of the farm was Finch Landings and it was  managed by the daughter, Alexandra.
