Origin of the Name Rickaby

The Rickaby family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Rickaby is a locality name meaning, 'of Rickerby' a township in the parish of Stanwix, Co. Cumberland. This name is of English descent and is found in many ancient manuscripts in the above country. Examples of such are a Homines de Ricardeby, of Co. Cumberland, who was recorded in the 'Placita de Quo Warranto' during the reign of Edward I and a Jenet Rickobye was buried at the church of St. Mary, Ulverston, in the year 1563. Names were recorded in these ancient documents to make it easier for their overlords to collect taxes and to keep a record of the population at any given time. When the overlords acquired lands by either force or as gifts from their rulers, they created charters of ownership for themselves and their vassals. In Ireland this name was mainly introduced into the Province of Ulster by settlers from England , especially during the seventeenth century.
The Rickaby coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Rickaby descendants.
