The surname of DYMICK was a locational name 'of Dymock' a spot in the County of Gloucestershire.The earliest recorded instance of the name is Nicholas de Dimmoch, 1169, Gloucester. In 1594, Giles Dimmock was the vicar of Duntsbourn Abbots in County Gloucester. Jane de Lewis Dymoke was baptised at St. Dionis Backchurch, London in the year 1746. The name is still spread widely throughout the Gloucestershire area. The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. (Wells-Dymoke. Exemplified to Edmund Lionel Wells, Esq of Shrubs Hill, Sunningdale, County Berkshire, upon his taking, by Royal Licence, 27th August 1866, the additional name of Dymoke, in right of his descent from Edward Dymoke Esq of Grebby Hall, County Lincoln, second son of Sir Edward Dymoke, Champion at the Coronation of Charles 11). Sir John DYMOKE (d.1381) was an English knight. By his marriage (c.1350) with the heiress of the Marmions he got the Lincolnshire manor of Scrivelby, and became Kings champion at Richard II's coronation. The function (to challenge all-comers to the Kings title) was last exercised at George IV's coronation by Henry Dymoke (1801-65), but Dymokes bore the standard of England at the coronations of Edward VII, George V, George VI, and Queen Elizabeth. Family names are a fashion we have inherited from the times of the Crusades in Europe, when knights identified one another by adding their place of birth to their first or Christian names. With so many knights, this was a very practical step. In the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries the nobles and upper classes, particularly those descended from the knights of the Crusades, recognised the prestige an extra name afforded them, and added the surname to the simple name that had been given to them.
