Early Origins of the Arsycke family
The surname Arsycke was first found in Norfolk
at Southacre, a parish, in the union of Swaffham, hundred
of South Greenhoe. The church located here is of particular significance to the family. "The church contains portions in the three styles of English architecture, with a square embattled tower; at the east end of the north aisle is a chapel, in which is the effigy of a Knight Templar, supposed to represent Sir Eudo Harsick, who died in 1292, and by whom it is thought the church was erected."

, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Arsycke, or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe.
