I've always been proud of my surname. Born 3rd child of Ronald Hicks, grandchild of Roy and Mary (Dimmig) Hicks, great grand daughter of John Hicks, all Lee County, IL. I do know that the ancestry on my father's side is British but not much more unfortunately.
Christopher J. Hicks
I am the first son of Roger Lee Hicks My Grandfather was Dennis Hicks, a coal miner from Charleston, WV My Great-Grandfather was Charley Hicks from Scott Depot, WV My Great-Great Grandfather was Calvin Akilles Hicks from Ohio. Going back further, I can recount now back to relations from Scotland clearances and English Nobility. It's good to be a Hicks. :-)
Ok really small world. I was looking up the origin of the name Hicks and the first thing I read is about people from West Virginia where I grew up. And even smaller world since I grew up in Scott Depot, West Virginia. My father's name is Earl Hicks (as was his father) and still lives in Scott Depot. It is good to be a Hicks indeed.

My 6th grade daughter had an assignment to research the etymology of our last name. I knew my parents had studied it out at one point, so I had her reach out to them. This was their reply to her: "Long ago, the Vikings, who came from one of the Scandinavian countries, traveled by sea, and some were pirates. One by the name of Swykus settled with a group of other Vikings in England and settled down to farm. His name changed to Hykus, meaning "tiller of the soil" or farmer. That later became Hicks, and it was pronounced like "Hikes." It eventually became Hicks, pronounced as it is today. Grandpa says the pronunciation to Hicks occurred when they immigrated to America."
I like my last name!!!
