Early Origins of the Spiker family
The surname Spiker was first found in London 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 1192 when Richard and Walter Spigurnell held estates and were presumably the King's notaries.
