The Anglo-Saxon name Higefith comes from when the family resided in the old village of Hickford, Shropshire.

Early Origins of the Higefith family


The surname Higefith 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 Higefith family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: John Hickford, who sailed to Maine in 1640 and Thomas Hickford to Maryland in 1669.
