The Croach surname in England is said to descend from Nicholas Le Blount, who was outlawed and exiled after having worked to try and restore Richard II (reign 1377-1399) to the throne. It is said that he returned to England, with his name changed to Croke.

Croach Early Origins



The surname Croach was first found in Shropshire. Robert Croc was a retainer of Walter, the first High Steward of Scotland, and probably accompanied his lord north from Shropshire. Robert held lands in Renfrewshire and Ayrshire during the late 12th century. Sir Thomas Crok was the last of the direct Scottish line which failed in the 13th century. The people of Norman heritage bearing this surname have a long and interesting recorded history in which we find them in Scotland, Ireland and England. "In the reign of Charles I., the treaty for the surrender of Oxford to the parliamentarians, was negotiated here, in the mansion-house of the family of Croke." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
