BULLOCK Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is an example of that sizeable group of early European surnames that were gradually created from the habitual use of nicknames. The nicknames were given in the first instance with reference to a variety of occupations or to personal characteristics, such as physical attributes or peculiarities, mental and moral characteristics, supposed resemblance to an animal's or bird's appearance or disposition, or to habits of dress and behaviour. In this instance, the name would have been a nickname for an exuberant young man, deriving from the Middle English "bullok", bullock, referring to a young steer, from the Olde English pre 7th Century "bulluca", a bull calf.
