The lineage of the name Killick begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they 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]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Killick were among those contributors:

Killick Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Thomas Killick, who landed in America in 1806

Killick Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century

  • Margaret Killick, aged 31, a servant, arrived in South Australia in 1856 aboard the ship "Violet"
