Vicar Family CrestThe English surname Vicar, is an occupational name for a parish priest. The name is derived from the Middle English term vica(i)re, vikere (Old French vicaire, from Latin vicarius meaning “substitute, or deputy”). The word was originally used to denote someone who carried out pastoral duties on behalf of the absentee holder of a benefice. The earliest record of the name is in the Domesday Book in 1086 in Devon, in the southwest of England. Anne Vickars was noted in the Register of the Parish Church of Rothwell, Yorkshire in 1592.
