My girlfriend found this out from the Historical Research Cente (send them $15 and you get a print out from them so accuracy is unknown).This is what they sent:
"Research shows that in the United States today the surname Ticer is particularly associated withe the states of California and Florida.In fact, in the latter state there is a town of the name which is located near Ft. Myers. Since many small American townships were named after their original settlers, it is possible that Ticer was named after one of the early bearers of that name in the United States, or a descendent thereof.We know, for instance that one of the passengers on the ship “Brothers”, bound for Maryland out of Southwark in London, was John Ticer, a thirty-five year old cordmainer going to work as an indentured servant in Virginia for four years. This tells us that the surname is of English origin, and further research yields a patronymic origin for this name.In this case, it is derivedfrom a pet form, such as Teutia, tezia, or any one of the number of ancient Germanic personal names with the element Theud, meaning “folk”. One of the earliest references to this name is a record of one Adam Ticer who is documented in the Pipe Rolls of Huntingdonshire, in 1206.Alice Ticer married John Lawrence in St. Mary Magdalene Church, Taunton, Somerset, on November 26th 1567.Anne Ticer, daughter of Richard Ticer, was christened in a church in Puttenham, Surrey, on January 31st, 1637.We also read of the christening of Alexander Carter Ticer, son of William and Elizabeth Ticer, in an independent chapel, Blandford Forum, Dorset, on the 31st of March, 1784.The marriage of Benjamin Ticer and Elizabeth Smith took place in the church of St. Mary, Marylebone Road, London, on July 2nd, 1784.The marriage of Edward Ticer and Caroline Ballard took place in Southill, Bedfordshire, on July 18th, 1868.
