Origins of surname

This surname originated in Medieval times from the personal name Richard, which in turn had French and German origins from the 6th century.

Early records

Although there are only baptisms on record in Jersey from 1838 onwards, the variations in spelling shown below indicate that the family was present in Jersey much earlier. Jean Hiques and Este Hottin were married in St Martin in 1597 and had seven children baptised there over the next two decades.
