Hancock Genealogy & History

Hancock, derived from the given name John, was an English given name as well as surname. "Hann," a form of Johan/John derived from the Hebrew "Yochanan," meant God has favored me with a son. The suffix "cock," a diminutive of Old English "cocca", meaning male bird, was a nickname for a young boy. Hancock family history begins in Yorkshire in medieval times with a family seat (feudal home). American Hancock genealogy starts in Jamestown in 1607 and includes John Hancock, the bold signer of the American Declaration of Independence. Fittingly, the rooster (cock) found on both the Hancock crest and coat of arms signifies courage.
