The origins of the Hickfithy name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the old village of Hickford, Shropshire.

Early Origins of the Hickfithy family


The surname Hickfithy 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]

Migration of the Hickfithy family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Hickfithy family emigrate to North America: John Hickford, who sailed to Maine in 1640 and Thomas Hickford to Maryland in 1669.
