The name Adcox is tied to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of England. It comes 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.

Early Origins of the Adcox family


The surname Adcox was first found in the county of Yorkshire from very ancient times before the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 A.D.

Migration of the Adcox family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Adcox were among those contributors: John Adcock who settled in Charlestown in 1792; Thomas Adcock settled in Potomack, Maryland in 1729; William Adcock settled in Philadelphia in 1868.
