The origins of the name Jeacocks are from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the baptismal name for the son of John. It was originally derived from the Hebrew given name Yocjanan. 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.

Migration of the Jeacocks family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad.

Early immigrants bearing the Jeacocks surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Thomas Jaycocks, who sailed to America in 1767. Registered among the United Empire Loyalists who fled to Canada as a result of the American Revolution was David Jacocks of Osnabruck, 1800..
