Frowyke Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Frowyke are characterized by many spelling variations.

Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Frowyke include: Frowick, Frowke, Froweck, Frowyke, Frowk, Frock and others.
