Holbeyke is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Holbeyke family once lived in the town of Holbeach in the county of Lincolnshire. This surname is a classic example of a habitation name which forms a broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. The surname Holbeyke was originally derived from the pre-existing name for a town.

Holbeyke Early Origins



The surname Holbeyke was first found in Lincolnshire 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.

Holbeyke Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Holbeyke family name include Holbeck, Holbech, Holbech, Holbeche, Holbeame and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Holbeyke surname or a spelling variation of the name include: William Holbeck, who arrived on the "Mayflower" at Plymouth Massachusetts in 1620; Mr. Holbeck arrived in Philadelphia in 1796.
