The Harlok 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.

Harlok Early Origins



The surname Harlok 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



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Harlok, or a variant listed above: Edward Harlock, who arrived in Maryland in 1653; Alice Hollick, who settled in Virginia in 1663; Abram Harlock, who came to Virginia in 1666; George Harlock, who settled in Maryland in 1667.
