The history of the Millichamp family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living in the settlement of Millichope in the county of Shropshire. The surname Millichamp belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Millichamp Early Origins



The surname Millichamp was first found in Shropshire where the surname is associated with the village of Millichope. The village of Millichope, a Norman spelling of the Anglo-Saxon Melicope, was held in 1086 by Helgot from Earl Roger, a companion of King William.

Millichamp 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 Millichamp include Millichamp, Millichap, Millenchop, Millcamp, Mellcamp, Mellencamp, Millcomp, Milcamp, Milcomp, Millicamp, Millicomp, Millichope and many more.

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 Millichamp or a variant listed above: Ann Milcomp, and her daughter Jane, settled in Pennsylvania in 1682; Richard Millechamp settled in Georgia in 1734; Timothy Millechamp settled in South Carolina in 1732.
