Viccars History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Viccars surname is was a patronymic name meaning "son of the vicar;" or, perhaps, an occupational name for a servant of the vicar.


Early Origins of the Viccars family


The surname Viccars was first found in Durham, where they had been seated as Lords of the manor in that shire. Although there is a tradition in the family that they were descended from a Spanish Don Vicaro who entered England in the train of Queen Catharine of Aragon, this source should be seriously questioned since the family held a family seat in Durham almost 300 years before when Nickolas Vigrus (Vickers) was Steward or Governor of Tynemouth in 1295.
