The ancestors of the name Hicfarte date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Hicfarte family lived in the old village of Hickford, Shropshire.

Hicfarte Early Origins



The surname Hicfarte was first found in Shropshire, but we must look to Oxfordshire to find one of the first listings of the name, that being Edith de Hicford who was listed there in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Hicfarte or a variant listed above: John Hickford, who sailed to Maine in 1640 and Thomas Hickford to Maryland in 1669.
