Origins Available: English, French


The name Cochey is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the village of Cochagh. The place-name was originally derived from the Old English word cocc, which literally means someone who lived by a hill or haycock, a mound of fresh cut hay left to dry in the meadow.

Cochey Early Origins



The surname Cochey was first found in Somerset, where they held a family seat from the Middle Ages.

Cochey Spelling Variations



The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Cochey has been spelled many different ways, including Cochey, Cockey, Cocheye, Cocagh and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Cocheys to arrive in North America:
