A series of conflicts regarding England's governance during the years 1642 to 1651 is now known as The English Civil War. Charles I summoned supporters to join him against his enemies in Parliament. In October 1642, nearly 10,000 men fought for Charles I and chased Parliament across the River Tamar. Fighting continued for years and was finally ended at the Battle of Worcester on September 3, 1651, with a Parliamentarian victory.

Name Meaning

English: from Middle English stoket ‘clearing with tree stumps’ (Old English stoccett). The surname may be topographic, for someone who lived in or near a clearing with tree stumps, or habitational, from a place so named, such as Stockhurst Farm in Oxted (Surrey). This surname has now died out in Britain.
