Jeakings History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Jeakings is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came 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 Jeakings 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 Jeakings or a variant listed above: 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..
