The history of the name Hanckers begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from the baptismal name for the son of John.

Hanckers Early Origins



The surname Hanckers was first found in Oxfordshire, where they were Lords of the Manor in that county from the most ancient times. The family originally settled in England after the Norman Conquest and at that time was registered in the rolls as De Hanacre.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hanckers or a variant listed above: Christopher Hancker, who sailed to Philadelphia, Pa. in 1752 and William Hanker, also to Philadelphia in 1813.
