Dockeray Early Origins



The surname Dockeray was first found in Cumberland where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient no-man's land. Notable families such as the Percy, the Umfravilles and the Nevilles gathered many supporting clans around them. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. In that century, many of those clans drove their herds south, and they settled in Yorkshire and Lancashire. The name was first recorded in Dockwray, a hamlet in Matterdale in Cumberland. John de Dockwra was recorded with estates in 1332. In 1467 Robert Dockra succeeded to the estates. Isabel Dockray was listed in 1560.
