The Anglo-Saxon name Warritch comes from when the family resided in the county of Warwickshire or in the settlement of Warwick in the county of Cumberland. The surname Warritch 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Warritch or a variant listed above: James Warwick settled in Placienta, Newfoundland, in 1784; John Warrick settled in Fogo, Newfoundland, in 1804; John Warwick settled in Virginia in 1774.
