The origins of the Warrick name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Warrick was originally derived from a family having lived in the county of Warwickshire or in the settlement of Warwick in the county of Cumberland. The surname Warrick belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, farmsteads, counties, or other locations.

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:
