Record Search

Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Hocquard family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Hocquard, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for www.jerripediabmd.net. For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

Origin of Surname

The name is possibly an alternative for Hacquoil, which has a variant Hacquart but may also have derived from Hauchard, which is believed to originate with ancient Norman hauchier and ancient French hausser/haussage meaning a proud and arrogant person. Hauchard is a common name in Normandy but Hocquard is not.

However, a French source suggests that the name is synonymous with Hocher, and is derived from an old French word hochier, a dice player. This source goes on to suggest that Houchet is a Normandy surname with the same derivation.

Early records

Jean, Philippot and Richard are listed in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550. The earliest record found in Jersey is in 1510 with the spelling Hoquart.

Various spellings can be found within the same family in Jersey church records.
