The name Hyckman has a rich and ancient history. It is an Anglo-Saxon name that was originally derived from the baptismal name for the son of Hickman. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are very few Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.

Hyckman Early Origins



The surname Hyckman was first found in Oxfordshire where the Hickman family of Gainsborough trace back to Robert Fitz-Hickman, lord of the manors of Bloxham and Wickham. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Henry Hickman settled in Virginia in 1635; Richard Hickman settled in Jamaica in 1661; William Hickman settled in Virginia in 1655; Thomas Hickman settled in Virginia in 1652.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Toujours fidele
Motto Translation: Always faithful.
