An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The distinguished surname Baiker comes from the ancient culture of the Anglo-Saxons. The name is derived from the Old English "baecere," meaning "baker," and was first borne as an occupational name.

Baiker Early Origins



The surname Baiker was first found in Durham, where the Baiker family held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. Due to its occupational origins, it is likely that the name emerged independently in different areas, thus creating several early branches of the Baiker family.
