Boick History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The story of the Boick family stretches back through time to the Viking settlers who populated the rugged shores of Scotland in the Medieval era. The Boick name comes from a place named by these Vikings and was used by a family who lived in a place noted for the presence of a ridge that formed a boundary between two distinct areas. It comes from a variant of the word boak or balk, of the same meaning. While historians generally agree upon the aforementioned topographical derivation, most believe that this name actually came from the area called Boak in the parish of Kirkholm.


Early Origins of the Boick family


The surname Boick was first found in Berwickshire an ancient county of Scotland, presently part of the Scottish Borders Council Area, located in the eastern part of the Borders Region of Scotland, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Migration of the Boick family to the New World and Oceana


North America was far from Britain's oppressive monarchy. There, the Scottish found land and freedom, and many even the opportunity to pay back England in the American War of Independence. This brave heritage survives today largely in Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Research into passenger and immigration lists has brought forth evidence of the early members of the Boick family in North America: Samuel Boag who settled in Savannah, Georgia, in 1820; Antony Boak arrived in Philadelphia in 1872; John Boag settled in Philadelphia in 1852; Anthony arrived in Philadelphia in 1872.
