WICKMAN Family HistoryRecorded in the spellings of Wickman and Whickman, this is one of the oldest of occupational surnames. It derives from the pre 7th century Olde English 'wic' meaning a farm, plus 'man', which can mean friend, but when applied to an occupation describes a manager or foreman. There are many English towns and villages which have 'wic' as an integral part of the name, when of the best known being 'Gatwick', which has the very appropriate meaning of 'the goat farm', or Cheswick, the cheese farm. 'W(h)ickman', prior to becoming a surname in the 12th century, at the very beginning of such names, was previously used as a personal or given name.
