Irish names tend to vary widely in their spelling and overall form. The original Gaelic form of the name Deryke is O Deirg, from the word "dearg," which means red.

Deryke Early Origins



The surname Deryke was first found in County Mayo (Irish: Maigh Eo) located on the West coast of the Republic of Ireland in the province of Connacht, where they held a family seat in the baronies of Carra, Erris, and Tyrawley. They were descended from Fiachra, brother of Niall Mor, more commonly known as King Niall of the Nine Hostages, perhaps Ireland's greatest General/King.

The Great Migration



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 Ameri ca. 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 Deryke name: John Derick, who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1865; Edward Derigan, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1875; the Widow Derrick, who settled in Georgia in 1738 with two sons and two daughters.
