Origins Available: Belgium, Dutch, German, Scottish


The saga of the Dyck family name begins among the people of an ancient Scottish tribe called the Picts. The Dyck name is derived from the given name Richard. Dick is a diminutive of this personal name. Thus, Dyck is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Many patronyms come from the given name of the father of the bearer, while others come from important religious and secular figures. Early members of the Dyck family settled in Edinburghshire, as early as 1200.

Dyck Early Origins



The surname Dyck was first found in Edinburghshire, a former county, now part of the Midlothian council area where one of the first records of the name appeared in the late 1200s.

The Great Migration



Many Scottish families suffered enormous hardships and were compelled to leave their country of birth. They traveled to Ireland and Australia, but mostly to the colonies of North America, where many found the freedom and opportunity they sought. It was not without a fight, though, as many were forced to stand up and defend their freedom in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of these Scots abroad have rediscovered their heritage in the last century through the Clan societies and other organizations that have sprung up across North Ameri ca.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: At spes infracta
Motto Translation: Yet my hope is unbroken.
