Origins of surname
This name is of English origin, and is linked to a place called Dymock in Gloucestershire. The placename may be derived from the Welsh tymoch, pigsty (a compound of ty = house, and moch = pigs).
Although there were Dimmicks living in St Helier and St Lawrence in the 1840s, this became very much a St Ouen family from the 1880s onwards.
The name is found in Jersey records spelt Dimmick, Dimmock, Dimock, Demick and Demmick, but we suspect that all probably belong to the same family. Certainly the family recorded in the 1851 census as Demick, living in St Lawrence, and shown in the tree below, used the spelling Dimmick for the registration of their children's births.
The name is well known in New Jersey, but it is not believed that the family there can trace its origins back to Jersey.
