Does anyone know the meaning of the name Mazyck and where it came from and what language it is? I am an African-american Mazyck, 16 years old, and I live in Detroit and I'm beginning to wonder where I come from. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Rik, The family name came to Charleston, South Carolina, in about 1685 with the single emigrant Isaac Mazyck. He married in South Carolina and has many descendents. The name had various spellings but the current one was fixed by the time of the emigrant's death in about 1750. Isaac Mazyck was a member of a Protestant family living in La Rochelle and the nearby Isle de Re, France, when the Edict of Nantes, through which certain civil rights had been granted to Protestants, was revoked by King Louis XIV. Protestants had to either become Roman Catholics or leave the country. Isaac Mazyck's parents were themselves emigrants to France, having been born in Northern Europe (Holland or Belgium today). The family originated in a town of the same name ("Maaseik") on the Meuse or Maas River. The name could be translated from Maas Eik to Maas Oak or River Oak. Sincerely, Arthur Mazyck
