Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Hickerson is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in Huntingdonshire. The name could also have been a baptismal name derived as the son of Richard.

Hickerson Early Origins



The surname Hickerson 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.
