Where did the English Adcok family come from? What is the English Adcok family crest and coat of arms? When did the Adcok family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Adcok family history?

The history of the Adcok name began with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from a baptismal name which means Adam. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are very few Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Adcok family name include Adcock, Adecok, Adcockson, Akokson, Hadecock, Hadicock, Adcok, Adecock, Atcock, Addicott and many more.

First found in the county of Yorkshire from very ancient times before the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 A.D.

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Adcok surname or a spelling variation of the name include : John Adcock who settled in Charlestown in 1792; Thomas Adcock settled in Potomack, Maryland in 1729; William Adcock settled in Philadelphia in 1868.
