Where did the English Hickinbottom family come from? What is the English Hickinbottom family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hickinbottom family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hickinbottom family history?

Hickinbottom is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived at Higginbottom in the county of Cheshire.


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Hickinbottom has been recorded under many different variations, including Higginbottom, Higginbotham, Hickenbottom, Hickinbottom, Higgenbottom, Higginbothem, Higinbotham, Higinbothem and many more.

First found in Cheshire 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.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hickinbottom or a variant listed above:
