Killick Coat of Arms / Killick Family Crest

The surname of KILLICK was a locational name 'of Kildwick' a parish in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. The earliest of the name on record appears to be CHILDEUUIC (without surname) who was listed as a tenant in the Domesday Book of 1086. KILDEWIKE (without surname) appears in the North Riding of Yorkshire in 1267. The Norman Conquest in England in the year of 1066 revolutionized our personal nomenclature. The old English name system was gradually broken up and old English names became less common and were replaced by new names from the continent. Most of the early documents deal with the upper classes who realised that an additional name added prestige and practical advantage to their status. Names of peasants rarely occurred in medieval documents. In 1086 the compilation of the Domesday Book was ordered by William the Conqueror (1027-87), king of England from 1066. He was born in Falaise, the bastard son of Robert, Duke of Normandy, by Arlette, a tanner's daughter. On his father's death in 1035, the nobles accepted him as a duke. When Edward the Confessor, King of England died in 1066, William invaded England that Autumn, on 14th October, 1066 killing Harold (who had assumed the title of King). English government under William assumed a more feudal aspect, the King's tenants-in-chief and all title to land was derived from his grants, and the Domesday Book contains details of the land settlements, and the names of the owners of such. Later records of the name mention John Kylleck, who was buried at St. Dionis Backchurch, London in 1601. William Killick and Diana Bateman were married at St. George's Chapel, Mayfair, London in 1745. George Samples and Amy Killick were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in 1789. The name is also spelt Killwick and Killik. The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. In the Middle Ages heraldry came into use as a practical matter. It originated in the devices used to distinguish the armoured warriors in tournament and war, and was also placed on seals as marks of identity. As far as records show, true heraldry began in the middle of the 12th century, and appeared almost simultaneously in several countries of Western Europe.
