Alnwake Early Origins



The surname Alnwake was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history dominated after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was first referenced in the 11th century when they held estates in the county.

Alnwake Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Alnwick, Alnick, Annick, Annicke, Almwake, Alnwyk and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Alnwake or a variant listed above: Amick, aged 58, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1904; Adele Amick, aged 42, who arrived at Ellis Island from Paris, France, in 1910; J. W. Amick, aged 46, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1904.
