Origins of surname

This is a surname of early medieval English origin, and has three possible origins. The first is of a fishmonger, or a fisherman for pike. Alternatively it may be a surname for one who worked the soil using a pike for breaking up the earth, it could be the name given to a soldier who used a pike, a weapon consisting of a sharp metal end on a long pole.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey records in 1701, when soldier John Pike married Anne Kerbel in St Helier. There is no record of their having a family in Jersey, the first baptism recorded being that of William, son of John and Abagell Pike in St Helier in 1783.

In 1816 there was a marriage of another soldier John Pike to Mary Harding, and in 1822 Samuel Pike, described as coming from St Helier, but probably an immigrant, married Nancy Coutanche, also of St Helier, in St Saviour's Parish Church. They had six daugthters, all baptised in St Helier.
