Enoch Early Origins



The surname Enoch was first found in Hampshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1148 when Enoc was recorded with taxable assets.

Enoch Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Enoch family name include Enoch, Enock, Enoke, Enocke, Enochs, Enos and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Enoch surname or a spelling variation of the name include:

Enoch Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Noah Enoch, who arrived in Virginia in 1663

Enoch Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Lewis Enoch, who landed in Allegany (Allegheny) County, Pennsylvania in 1808
  • Walter T Enoch, who landed in Mississippi in 1858

Enoch Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century
