Name Meaning

English (Lancashire):

perhaps a habitational name from a lost locality on the River Ribble called Hurroc, alluded to in Hurrocford (about 1330), now modern Horrocksford in Clitheroe (Lancashire). Hurroc- may be linked to modern northern English dialect hurrock ‘piled up heap of stones or rubbish’ but there is no evidence so far for a Middle English surname atte hurroke.

variant of Horwick (see Horwich ).
