Merrick Family HistoryThis ancient surname recorded in the spellings of Meyric, Meyrick, Merrick, Merricks and the American Myrick, is of Anglo-Welsh and possibly Scottish origins. The first is Welsh, and derives from "Meyric, the Prince of Cardigan", and head of the North Wales tribe based upon Bodorgan, in the Isle of Anglesey. It is claimed that the Welsh origin is of Norman descent, being a form of "Maurice", and dating back to King John of England in 1199. The second origin is definately Norman, and may be the same source as the first. It derives from the Old French personal name "Maurice" introduced into England after the Conquest of 1066...
