Hyckmyn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The name Hyckmyn originated with the Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled Britain. It is 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.

Early Origins of the Hyckmyn family

Migration of the Hyckmyn family

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hyckmyn arrived in North America very early: 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.
