ROCKEY Family History

Recorded as Rock, Rocke, and the diminutives Rockie, Rockey, and Ruckie, this interesting surname is of medieval English origin, of which it has several. The first is residential for somebody who lived near a notable crag or outcrop. This is from the Olde English pre 7th century word 'rocc'. The second source is again residential but this time for somebody who lived near a large oak tree. This is a fusing of the Middle English phrase "atter oke", meaning at the oak tree. Thirdly it can be locational either from the village of Rock in Northumberland, which is on a rock, or from Rock in Worcestershire, which is the fused form of 'atter oke'.
