Frowicke 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.

Known variations of the Frowicke family name include Frowick, Frowke, Froweck, Frowyke, Frowk, Frock and others.
