Wickett Early Origins



The surname Wickett was first found in Lincolnshire 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 1066 after the Norman Conquest when Wigot or Wigod (one of the most powerful Baron Norman origin of Bigot) from castles and lands. William Bigot was the brother of Roger Bigod and the second son of Robert Bigot became to the conquest by Apula from Italy. The name became Wiggett.
