In the British Isles, the Pike surname is widespread, occurring not just in England but also in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and the Channel Islands. That said, the name seems to have been most common in the west country of England, especially in the counties of Devon, Somerset and Wiltshire. To the right you will see a map showing the distribution of the Pike surname in Great Britain at the time of the 1881 census (this map was provided by RootsMap.com). Among the earliest known Pike references include Aelfric Pike (who is listed in Devon in the Domesday Book of 1086) and Sir Richard Pike (who lived in Somerset in the early 1300s). more
