The Anglo-Saxon name Holbyck comes from when the family resided 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 Holbyck was originally derived from the pre-existing name for a town.

The Great Migration



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 Holbyck or a variant listed above: William Holbeck, who arrived on the "Mayflower" at Plymouth Massachusetts in 1620; Mr. Holbeck arrived in Philadelphia in 1796.
