WILCOX Family History

This interesting surname is of early medieval English origin. It derives from the elements "Will", a short form of William, with the addition of the hypocoristic suffix "cock or cockes, meaning son of, and later transposed to "cox". William was the Norman form of the personal name Wilhem composed of the Germanic elements "wil", meaning will or desire, and "helm", meaning protection. William was introduced into England at the time of the Conquest, and within a very short period it became the most popular given name in England, mainly no doubt in honour of the Conqueror himself.
