Name Meaning

In some cases also a variant of Bricker , a surname of German origin.

Americanized form of northern French Brique, Briquet, or Bricquet: nickname for a hunter, from Old French briquet ‘dog used in fox and badger hunting’, or for a madman, from a diminutive of Old French bric ‘mad, crazy’.

History: The ancestor of almost all of the Brickeys is Jean Bricquet alias John Brickey, who immigrated from France to SC in 1680s and later settled down in Westmoreland County, VA. Only on of his sons, Peter, had male children. Jean Bricquet is listed in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors.
