The name Kerrick/Karrick is originally spelled Carrick. It
depends on where one lived, England, Ireland or originally
Scotland. Not because of one branch of family being richer
than the other. The name is a locational Surname of
Carrick Co. Ayrshire Scotland. The clans of Kennedy are
with in this family of the Ancient Earls and Kings of
Scotland and William 1 the Conqurer. Taking from Robets J Karrick of Ohio, a researcher of 70 years:

The orginial surname KARRICK is from the Rare
Ancient Royal Family of Duncan de Carrick ,the 1st
Earl of Carrick and Regent for King of Scotland,of
Ayrshire,Scotland. He was a Descendant of a long
Line of Ancient Irish and Scottish Kings,and the
Norman Conqueror , William I, King of England .
Earl Duncan married Avelina, daughter of Allen
FitzWalter and had sons; Neil 2nd Earl of
Carrick,whose daughter Margory married Robert
Bruce.The other son Nicholaus (or Colin),Lord of
Carrick,who was in Fife ca 1280 had changed his name
to Nigel Karriak and married Marotta ,daughter of
Robert Rossyn. Nigel had a son Robert Nigel de
Karrik,who was mentioned a Maistenton Charter at
Newbottel ,Scotland.
The search continues for the KARRICK Surname
Descendants under the spelling variants of
Carrick,Karrack,Kerrick,Kerrich ,etc. There are
indications that the Karricks or Carricks where in
Glouschester England when the Family Coat of Arms
was developed . Also there was a group of Karricks
lived and died in the Pale and Dublin ,Ireland in
the 1600's
The first migrant to North America was a
Edward Kerrick (Karrick) to Virgina in 1671 ,who is
though to be the Progenitor of the Carrick/Karrick/
Kerrick Families of Charles County Maryland.
