In ancient Anglo-Saxon England, the ancestors of the Kilicke surname lived in Kilnwick or Kilnwick Percy in the East Riding of Yorkshire. They are now found in Humberside, a new county formed after the reorganization of local government in England in 1974. The place-name is based on the Old English personal name Cylla, and means "farm of a man named Cylla." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Early Origins of the Kilicke family


The surname Kilicke was first found in Yorkshire at Kilnwick (or Kilnwick-on-the-Wolds), a village and parish in the Yorkshire Wolds. "Many provincial dialects drop the final N of Kiln; and the W in the termination, as in War(w)ick, Nor(w)ich." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Kilicke family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. 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 Kilicke or a variant listed above: James Killicke settled in Virginia in 1648.
