Jellicoe Early Origins



The surname Jellicoe 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.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Jellicoe or a variant listed above:

Jellicoe Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Samuel Jellicoe, who arrived in America in 1699

Jellicoe Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Adam Jellicoe, who settled in Antigua (Antego) in 1718

Jellicoe Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century

  • H Jellicoe landed in Hokianga, New Zealand in 1836
