The Strathclyde-Briton people of ancient Scotland were the first to use the name Allmox. The Allmox family lived in Yorkshire.

Allmox Early Origins



The surname Allmox was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhn Phris), a Southern area, bordering on England that today forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway Council Area, where this curious name is descended from Robert M'Kawele, Lord of Karsneloughe, who was living in 1370 in Guffok land in Nithsdale. Traditionally within the family name the first Allmack or Allmark was a MacAll who on migrating south to Yorkshire found it more fashionable to drop the Mac from his name to become accepted in the English society. Progressively the name became Allmack, Allmark, Allmoke, Hawmoke. William Allmack, one of the founders of Hong Kong was honored by Almack Place in that city.

Land was often available and the American War of Independence allowed Scots an opportunity to solidify their independence from the English crown.
