The surname Hichach was first found in Gloucestershire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Hichach are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Hichach include: Hicock, Hichcoke, Hickox, Hickhock, Hickhocke and many more.

An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Hichach or a variant listed above: Captain Hickcocke settled in Virginia in 1623; Otis Hickok, an emigrant from Ireland, who fought in the War of 1812 and settled in Vermont; and M. Hickox settled in San Francisco in 1850..
