Early Origins of the Helicorse family
The surname Helicorse was first found in Derbyshire
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1553 when John Jelicoke held estates in that shire.

Migration of the Helicorse family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Helicorse were among those contributors: Samuel Jellicoe, who arrived in America in 1699; Adam Jellicoe, who settled in Antigua (Antego) in 1718; and John Jerico, who arrived in New York, NY in 1837..
