The Boocock surname study aims to research all occurrences of the name Boocock and the ancestry of people who were born with the name Boocock. Analysis of the registered births up to 1851 show users of the name were mainly clustered in the West Riding of Yorkshire with small pockets in the East Riding of Yorkshire and Lancashire. Outside these areas there are individual family groups in other parts of England. My ambition is to extend this to a world-wide study but at the moment my research is focused on Great Britain. My proposition is; the vast majority of people with the name Boocock will have some ancestral connection with the West Riding of Yorkshire.

The study is at a very early stage.   Additional information, including details of individuals and their ancestry, is available at the sister site.
