Poche Early Origins



The surname Poche was first found in Leicestershire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Barkby. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

a survey initiated in 1086 A.D., by Duke William of Normandy after his conquest of England in 1066, the village and Mill of Barkby was held by Leofric, an under-tenant, from Adelaide, the wife of Hugh de Grandesnil. However, in early times the estates were held by Walter Power, who had a daughter who married Peter Lincoln. The latter also had a daughter, Anne, who married William Willoughby, who also had a daughter, Alice, who married Richard Pochin and thenceforth the Pochins held Barkby. The name Pochin is derived from the Norman French Pocin but the relationship between the original Norman settlers at Barkby and Pochin is tenuous.

Poche Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Poche family name include Pochin, Pocin, Pochen, Poching, Poaching, Pockin, Pochen, Pocken, Pochine, Pochinko and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Poche family to immigrate North America: William Pockin who landed in North America in 1720.
