Early Origins of the Stockum family
The surname Stockum was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1279 when Emma Stockman held estates in that shire.
