The Hollick surname comes from the Old English words "har," meaning "grey" and "locc," which refers to a lock of hair. Thus the surname was most likely formed from a nickname for someone with a patch of grey hair.

Hollick Early Origins



The surname Hollick was first found in Hampshire where the family name was first referenced in the year 1066 when Borewoldus Horloc held a family seat at Winton. The name literally means "grey lock" from the Old English words "har" + "locc." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hollicks to arrive on North American shores:
