Fishlock Early Origins



The surname Fishlock was first found in Yorkshire 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 1204 when Simon of Fishlake was recorded on tax rolls. Fishlake was an ancient village recorded in the Domesday Book. In the earlier Saxon it was called Fixcale. In 1086 it was held by William Warrene, a Norman line which would later become the Earls of Warwick. Conjecturally, the Fishlocks or Fishlakes may be descended from the Norman Baron or a relative.

The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Fishlock has been recorded under many different variations, including Fishlake, Fishlock, Fitchlock, Fiscoke, Fishlok and others.
