Family Name History

The English surname Adcock is of patronymic origin, being one of those names derived from the first name of a father. It literally denotes "The  son of Adam". The personal name of Adam is Hebrew in origin and signifies red earth. The name was not used by the Jews but was adopted by the Irish as early as the seventh century when Saint Adamnan was Abbot of Iona. The suffix "cock" was always added to the nickname of a personal name. Thus, it was attached to Ade. The pet form of Adam and it indicates patronymic. The surname is recorded in English documents as early as 1226. In that year Richard Hadecoc was a resident of Leicester while Robert Adekak is listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire in 1275. In 1327 , the name of one John akkoc appears in the Subsidy Rolls for Staffordshire. Variants of this surname include Adcocks, Adcock, and Hadcock.
