Early Origins of the Jellicose family
The surname Jellicose 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.

names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Jellicose has been recorded under many different variations, including Jellicoe, Jellicoke, Jellico, Jellicorse, Jelicoe, Jerico, Jericoe, Gellicoe and many more.

Migration of the Jellicose 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 Jellicose 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..
