The surname Jellico was first found in Derbyshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1553 when John Jelicoke held estates in that shire.

Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago. In the Middle Ages, even the literate spelled their names differently as the English language incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other European languages. Many variations of the name Jellico have been found, including Jellicoe, Jellicoke, Jellico, Jellicorse, Jelicoe, Jerico, Jericoe, Gellicoe and many more.

Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Jellico, or a variant listed above: Samuel Jellicoe, who arrived in America in 1699; Adam Jellicoe, who settled in Antigua (Antego) in 1718; and John Jerico, who arrived in New York, NY in 1837..
