The Horlick 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.

Horlick Early Origins



The surname Horlick 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



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Horlick were among those contributors: Edward Harlock, who arrived in Maryland in 1653; Alice Hollick, who settled in Virginia in 1663; Abram Harlock, who came to Virginia in 1666; George Harlock, who settled in Maryland in 1667.
