Hiscocks Coat of Arms / Hiscocks Family Crest

This name HISCOCKS was a baptismal name 'the son of Richard'. Many of the early names recorded in medieval documents denote noble families but many also indicate migration from the continent during, and in the wake of, the Norman invasion of 1066. There was a constant stream of merchants, workmen and others arriving in England during this time. In 1086 the Record of Great Inquisition of lands of England, their extent, value, ownership and liabilities was made by order of William The Conqueror. It is known as the Domesday book. Early records of the name mention Hichecock (without surname) who was such a tenant listed in this Domesday Book. Richard Hitchcott was documented in the year 1275 in County Yorkshire. William Hyggecock appears in 1329 in County Dorset. Willelmus Higerock of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Roger Watts and Agnes Hytchecooks married in London in the year 1553. In many parts of central and western Europe, hereditary surnames began to become fixed at around the 12th century, and have developed and changed slowly over the years. As society became more complex, and such matters as the management of tenure, and in particular the collection of taxes were delegated to special functionaries, it became imperative to distinguish a more complex system of nomenclature to differentiate one individual from another. A notable member of the name was Edward Hitchcock (1793-1864) the American geologist, born in Deerfield, Massachusetts. He was professor of Chemistry at Amherst. He conducted geological surveys of Massachussets, and explored dinosaur tracts in Connecticut valley. Sir Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980) was the English film-maker, born in Leytonstone, London. He began as a junior film technician in 1920, and by 1925 had graduated to motion picture director. He was an un-excelled master of suspence with such films as 'The Thirty-Nine Steps' (1935) and Psycho (1960). The associated arm are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884.
