The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Bich has been spelled many different ways, including Bick, Biche, Bich, Bicker, Bickers and others.

First found in Berkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Bichs to arrive in North America: Francis Bick who settled in Virginia in 1635; Richard Bick, who settled in Virginia in 1636; John Bick, who settled in Maryland in 1663; Thomas Bick, who settled in Nevis in 1663.
