The name Wirick is an old Anglo-Saxon name. It comes from when a family lived in the county of Warwickshire or in the settlement of Warwick in the county of Cumberland. The surname Wirick belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, farmsteads, counties, or other locations.

Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Wirick were recorded, including Warwick, Warwyke, Warrick, Warrack, Warrock, Warrich and many more.

First found in Cumberland where they were Lords of the manor which was anciently written Warthwick. The first on record was Alwine of Warwick who held the castles and manor about the year 1050. His son, Turchil de Warwick appeared in the Domesday Book in 1086 as a tenant of the same manors.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Wirick family emigrate to North America: James Warwick settled in Placienta, Newfoundland, in 1784; John Warrick settled in Fogo, Newfoundland, in 1804; John Warwick settled in Virginia in 1774.
