The name Baddock was spawned by the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture that ruled a majority of Britain. It comes from the personal name Bartholomew. Bat(e) was a pet form of this personal name and when combined with 'cock' which was a common suffix for other names like Wilcox, Simcock and others became Batcock.

Baddock Early Origins



The surname Baddock was first found in Worcestershire, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Baddocks to arrive on North American shores:
