The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Hyching come from when the family resided in Hickling, a parish in the county of Norfolk.

Early Origins of the Hyching family


The surname Hyching was first found in Norfolk at Hickling, a village and a civil parish that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Hikelinga. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Hyching Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Hyching has been recorded under many different variations, including Hickling, Hicklin, Hicking and others.

Migration of the Hyching family to the New World and Oceana


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 Hyching or a variant listed above: John Hickling settled in Boston in 1769; Ebenezer Hickling settled in Philadelphia in 1798.
