German and Swiss German (also Stöcker): topographic name for someone living by a tree stump (see Stock 3) or an occupational name for a tree cutter, from Middle High German stocken ‘to clear land’.
German and Swiss German (also Stöcker); Dutch: occupational name from Middle High German, Middle Dutch stocker ‘jailer’.
English: occupational name from Middle English stokker ‘one who sells stockfish’ (fish dried in the air without salt). This was the usual source of the name in medieval London, where a bylaw of 1419 stated that no stokker should board a ship to buy fish (presumably in order to forestall the market).
