BLOCK Family HistoryThis interesting and long-established surname, either of Anglo-Norman or medieval German origin, derives from the Old French "bloc" (Dutch "blok"), related to the Old High German "bloh", block (a large solid form on which particular tasks, such as chopping and cutting may be done, or on which things are shaped or displayed). The name is therefore a metonymic occupational one for a craftsman who habitually used a block in the course of his work, for example, a shoemaker, wig-maker, hatter, or bookbinder.
