[County Seal, Wicomico County, Maryland] Origin: Wicomico County was created from Somerset and Worcester counties in 1867 (Constitution, Art. XIII, secs. 2-6). The County was named after the Wicomico River from the Indian words "wicko" and "mekee" meaning a place where houses are built, apparently referring to an Indian town on the river banks.
