VICKERS Family History

This interesting surname, with variant spellings Vicars, Viccars and Vickars, has two possible origins. Firstly, it may be a patronymic surname for the "son of a vicar", deriving from the Middle English "vicare", plus the possessive ending "s". Vicare was originally used to denote someone who carried out pastoral duties on behalf of the absentee holder of a benefice, and later became a regular word for a parish priest because in practice most benefice-holders were absentees. The final "s" however may also mean "servant of", and would therefore be an occupational surname for one who worked for a vicar.

I live in the united states and have forever been longing to find out more about my family and the origin of my family name. I am passionate about finding this out and I am fascinated by it all. I hope to one day visit the country where we are originally from and learn more. I've always wanted to mert distant and family relatives as well.
