Origins of surname
This is a reasonably common English surname, but we have not been able to find any information on its origins. We suspect that it is related to Landrick, a 17th century surname referring to a residence in a glade with a stream, from the old English lande (glade or pasture) and rithe, running water.
Landick is a name which came to Jersey from Devon in the mid-19th century and is still present today. The name has never been widespread and tracing the family is made difficult by the many unregistered or missing births.
The first registered birth appears to be that of William Henry Landick, the son of William and Frances Tarrant in 1861, but we have little doubt that there were earlier births.
Census records suggest that another William, who married Sarah Curtis, was born in St Helier in 1839, but we can find no baptism record to support this.
There is, however, a marriage record in St Helier in 1837, for Samuel Landick, from Tavistock, Devon, and Mary Jearum, from Broughton, Hampshire. We believe that they were the parents of William. The 1851 census shows Samuel and Mary living in St Helier with children William (1839- ), Mary (1842- ), Fanny (1845- ), Samuel (1847- ) and daughter 'E A' (1850- ) They are shown in the tree below which we have assembled from various sources.
- Landrick, may be a variant in England
