Docks History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Docks family


The surname Docks was first found in Staffordshire at Doxey, a village and civil parish that dates back to at least the Domesday Book where it was listed as Dochesig, land held by the Bishop of Chester. At that time it was part of Seighford and had land enough for three ploughs. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Doxey Pool is a small pool of water and legend claims it is inhabited by a mermaid called Jenny Greenteeth who apparently fell in the pool on a foggy day and since then she has been enticing victims to their watery grave in the pool. One of the first listings of the name was in the year 1210 when Hugh de Dockesey held estates in that shire. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
