The ancient history of the Kilik name begins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the family resided 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]

in the Domesday Book in 1086, and as Killingwic in the 12th century. Kilnwick Percy was named Chelingewic in 1086, as is recorded in the Domesday Book. The surname means "of Kilnwick."

Kilik Early Origins



The surname Kilik 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]

Kilik Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Kilik include Killick, Killwick, Killik, Killicke and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Kilik or a variant listed above: James Killicke settled in Virginia in 1648.
