Tickle History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Tickle is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Tickle family lived in Yorkshire, at Tickhill.
Early Origins of the Tickle family
The surname Tickle was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Tickhill in that shire, somewhere between Bridlington, Pockington, and Dadsley, all of which are on the outskirts of Tickhill. It is likely that they held a family seat there after the Conquest; however there is a possibility that there is some association with the Norman noble Roger de Bully who held estates in Nottingham and Yorkshire, and he built a castle at Tickhill, four miles to the northwest of the Honour of Blyth in Nottingham. Records of the name include William de Tikehill, listed in the Pipe Rolls of Yorkshire in 1175; and Roger de Tikell listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Derbyshire in 1327.

Tickle migration to the United States +
The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Tickle arrived in North America very early:
