I am tracing the records back for the name Alcock and find that by the beginning of the 19th Century, the name was often written as Allcock. I'd be interested to anybody who is connected to the Allcock/Alcock family from Lane End in Staffordshire, England. The name Lane End was changed to Longton at the beginning of the 1840's.

Hello. Thanks a lot for your reply. My research has gone dead for about a year now.

I can trace my family back to a William Alcock (often writen as Allcock in those days) who was my 3xgreat grandad. He was a brewer in Longton. He is listed in the 1841 census, living in the High Street with daughters and grand-daughters. My 2xgreat grandad was also called William Alcock. He moved away from Longton around 1842 to go to live in Cheadle, Staffs.

Electoral Rolls for Longton 1832 list a William Alcock as well as a John Alcock.

I'd be interested to hear anything you know about Allcocks in Longton.

I,m looking for any info regarding Edward Allcock/Alcock born approx 1906 and came from Market Drayton according to military records. He then prior to World War 2 moved to Chorley in Lancashire. when enlisted in 1939 he was Edward Allcock and may have a middle initial A,then 1942 he married in Blackburn Lancs whilst serving with Core Royal Military Police in the Border Regiment and he had changed the spelling to Alcock and on subsequent docs. Unfortunately
I cant place him or find him prior to 1939 in Chorley Lancs.

I have a John Allcock from Lane End, Staffordshire England. He was in Lee Co Iowa In the 1830's - 1840's with the LDS. He was married to Lydia. He had a son William Allcock born about 1790. William, his wife Sarah and children, Harriet, Charles, Robert, Samuel and Lydia (who were born in Lane End, Staffordshire, England) were also in Lee Co Iowa in the 1830's - 1840's. The name was changed to Alcott, Olcott in the US. According to later census they came to the US about 1839, 1840.
Is this the same family? I'ld be happy to exchange information if it is!

Hello,

Thanks for that message. There is probably some connection way back but I have no idea what it could be.

I have the names John Alcock and William Alcock in my family tree although not the same ones that are in your tree.

Rob.
