Surnames: Hircock, Hercock, Hircoe, Eastwick, Ashford, Bush, Upshall, Bridger, Wainwright
I have a plethora of Hircocks in my family tree. My Great Pop, Ernest James "Jerry" Hircoe was born a Hircock in Enfield, London England in 1896. He told me the family originally came from France. They fled because of Huguenot persecution in the 1600s. They lived in Northamptonshire for awhile. Eventually (not sure when), my Great Pop's line wound up in Enfield. My Great Pop's father was Charles Hircock. He married a lass named Fanny Eastwick. They had at least 6 children: Ernest, Edward, Horace, Herbert, Gladys, and Florence.

Ernest married May James, daughter of a wealthy Bristol man. They had two daughters: Kathleen May (my grandmother) and Betty. They moved to America in the late 1920s. Due to harassment by unsavoury sorts, they changed the name from Hircock to Hircoe. My Great Pop was the most wonderful & fascinating man! He survived WWI after having two fingers blown off. He also survived a 50 year smoking habit and an appendectomy in the 1950s. He lived to be a month shy of 104! Pretty impressive. I have since received info that this durability might come from the Eastwick line.

About his siblings: Edward married Nell Ashford. I have no further info on them. Horace may have married a lass named Ann. No further info. Herbert married Ethel and had at least 3 children: Clifford, Trevor, and Audrey. They spell the surname Hercock. Audrey married Ted Upshall. Gladys married Jack Bush and had two children: Jack and Mary. Florence married someone with the surname Bridger & had a daughter Doreen. Doreen married Ron Wainwright and had a son named Philip.

I guess that's all I'll divulge for now. I'd love to hear from anyone who knows and/ or is related to anyone mentioned herein! Thank you for reading! :)
