Rickwood Early Origins



The surname Rickwood was first found in Berkshire, 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 1191 when Richewardus de Westberi held estates in that county.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:

Rickwood Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Thomas Rickwood, who was naturalized in California in 1864

Rickwood Settlers in Canada in the 19th Century

  • Philip Rickwood, who was on record in the census of Ontario, Canada of 1871
