Origin of Ricker, Meaning of Ricker

Origin: My Grandfather told me that I was a mispelling because my bloodline is German. That The proper English Rookers are descendents of the Stewards of the Tower of London . Chraged with keeping the Rooks (ravens-before the term became fixed for one specie) from leaving.
This is why the Rook chesspiece is tower shaped since usage of the Old english "Roche" for Castle would be unused by chess playing nobilty.
Hey.. That is what he said. Who knows what Ellis Island illiterate anglicised my surname, he?
It makes my search to correct my geneology hard for sure.
It can come from Richter, Ruetger, Rucker, or Rueger!
