An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Snoke is most likely derived from the Old English word "snoc," which is a projecting piece of land. There is also a popular tale that the surname came from the place name Sevenoaks, in Kent, which was often pronounced "Se noaks." The town's name is derived from the Saxon word "Seouenaca", the name given to a small chapel near seven oak trees in Knole Park around 800 AD

Snoke Early Origins



The surname Snoke was first found in Kent where Eduuardus Snoch was listed in 1066 in the Domesday Book. Other early references include Stenesnoc in Hampshire, and John and Thomas Snok in the Domesday of St. Paul's in 1222. Later records show Robert Shouk in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in 1327. And it is from this latter reference that the relationship to the aforementioned "Sevenoaks" is best shown. For it is here that Sussex deeds show a family of Snooks having many spelling variations from Sevenoaks to S'noaks. The name was pronounced "Sennocke" at the time and this pronunciation is still used at times in various places.
