The Harlock surname comes from the Old English words "har," meaning "grey" and "locc," which refers to a lock of hair. Thus the surname was most likely formed from a nickname for someone with a patch of grey hair.

Harlock Early Origins



The surname Harlock was first found in Hampshire where the family name was first referenced in the year 1066 when Borewoldus Horloc held a family seat at Winton. The name literally means "grey lock" from the Old English words "har" + "locc." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Harlocks to arrive in North America:
