Burdick Coat of Arms / Burdick Family Crest

The surname of BURDICK was a locational name 'of Burdett' a spot in Normandy. The family probably came to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. BURDOCK (without surname) who was listed in the Domesday Book of 1066, appears to be the earliest of the name on record. Hugo Burdet was documented in 1160 in Leicestershire. Local surnames, by far the largest group, derived from a place name where the man held land or from the place from which he had come, or where he actually lived. These local surnames were originally preceded by a preposition such as "de", "atte", "by" or "in". The names may derive from a manor held, from working in a religious dwelling or from literally living by a wood or marsh or by a stream. Following the Crusades in Europe a need was felt for a family name. This was recognized by those of noble blood, who realised the prestige and practical advantage it would add to their status. Other records of the name mention Nicholas Burdock documented in County Lincolnshire, during the reign of Henry III (1216-1272). Peter Burdock, County Leicestershire, ibid. Thomas Burdet of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Most of the European surnames in countries such as England, Scotland and France were formed in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The process had started somewhat earlier and had continued in some places into the 19th century, but the norm is that in the tenth and eleventh centuries people did not have surnames, whereas by the fifteenth century most of the population had acquired a second name.

The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884.
