PIKE Family History

This picturesque and interesting name if of early medieval English origin, and has three possible derivations, although they are all metonymic occupational names; the first possibly is that it is for a fishmonger, or a fisherman for Pike, as we have early recordings in the Subsidy Rolls of London of an Alexander le Pik, who was a fishmonger and owner of a ship in 1292. The derivation is from the Middle English "pike", (the fish, being named from its pointed jaw). Secondly, it may be a surname for one who worked the soil using a pointed tool (pike) for breaking up the earth, also deriving from the Middle English "pike"...

I know the Pike side of my family came from England. They were Quakers. I am a Quaker from Nahunta Friends Meeting in Pikeville, NC. Pikeville was named after my ancestors.
