Block Genealogy & History

Block is an English and German name. Its origins are uncertain, but one possibility is that it was derived from the Old English word bloc, which referred to a large solid object used to cut or chop things on or to put items on for display. If this is true, the name could have originated as an occupational name for people who used blocks in their jobs, such as shoemakers or bookbinders. Block family history begins in Wiltshire, first recorded with Robert Bloc (an alternate spelling) in 1199. Block genealogy includes Herbert Block or Herblock, an editorial cartoonist who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
