My understanding is that Petric is the Slavic spelling and is common in Czech circles. It might mean freeman. This info was obtained from a Czech descendant in Ottawa I met a University who's father own George Petric's Ford in Ottawa.
My family is from Berlin and the story is that its a corrpution of "Patrick" possibly from Irish mercenaries in the 30 Years War.
Seems a little farfetched but neat if its true. More than likely it is a slavic based name as many family names are in Eastern Germany/Prussia. I hope it does mean freeman.
