Chattock Family Crest / Chattock Coat of Arms

The surname CHATTOCK derived from the locational name 'Chadwick', a hamlet in the parish of Rochdale, County Lancashire. This surname is to be met with in every town in Lancashire. Local surnames, by far the largest group, derived from a place name where the man held land or from the place from which he had come, or where he actually lived. These local surnames were originally preceded by a preposition such as "de", "atte", "by" or "in". The names may derive from a manor held, from working in a religious dwelling or from literally living by a wood or marsh or by a stream. Early records of the name mention Nicholas de Chadwyke, documented during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). Anne Chadwick of Chadwick, County Lancashire, was listed in the Wills at Chester in 1636. Baptised. Margaret, daughter of Edward Chadweeke, at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in the year 1669. On the evening of May 13th 1787, after months of being held in ships, at dock in Woolwich, the First Fleet left for Australia, carrying with them the first convicts. Most were petty criminals, forced to a life of crime by a pitifull need. Amongst the 1,500 persons was poor Thomas Chaddick. Hunger had driven him into a garden where he 'did pluck up, spoil and destroy against the form of the statute' twelve cucumber plants. For that, he was transported. Sir Edwin Chadwick (1801-1890) was an English social reformer, born near Manchester. He was called to the bar in 1830, and was appointed assistant poor-law commissioner in 1832, and in his report of 1833, he laid the foundations of a later system of government inspections. He became secretary of the new Poor Law Board from 1834 until 1836. The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884.
