Brycke Spelling Variations


The recording of names in Ireland during the Middle Ages was an inconsistent endeavor at best. Since the general population did not know how to read or write, they could only specify how their names should be recorded orally. Research into the name Brycke revealed spelling variations, including Brick, O'Brick, Bricke, Bricks, O'Bric, O'Bruik, Bruic and many more.

Migration of the Brycke family to the New World and Oceana


A great mass of Ireland's native population left the island in the 19th century, seeking relief from various forms of social, religious, and economic discrimination. This Irish exodus was primarily to North America. If the migrants survived the long ocean journey, many unfortunately would find more discrimination in the colonies of British North America and the fledgling United States of America. These newly arrived Irish were, however, wanted as a cheap source of labor for the many large agricultural and industrial projects that were essential to the development of what would become two of the wealthiest nations in the western world. Early immigration and passenger lists indicate many people bearing the Brycke name: Francis Brick who settled in Virginia in 1638; followed by Richard in Maryland in 1716; Edward Bricke settled in Virginia in 1623; they also settled in Pennsylvania and New York between 1773 and 1822..
