Schock Early Origins



The surname Schock was first found in Switzerland, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. Literally translated, the word "schoche" or "schock" in its mediaeval context could mean either "hay stack" or "three score old."
