Bock Early Origins



The surname Bock was first found in Alsace and Franconia, where the name could be considered to have made a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever changing territorial profile. The Bock branch of Strasbourg enjoyed prestige in this city; Cunz Bock was knighted by King Albrecht I of Germany in 1298, and his descendant Georg Jacob was leader of the city in 1587. Sigmund von Bock was Bishop of Cammin in Pomerania in 1446.
