We are now in our third year researching and celebrating the extended Nock Family. Our study began with the focus on Nocks in America, specifically Accomack County, Virginia. If you study this blog, you can see a significant focus on Virginia. This is the ancestral home of most Nocks in America. Although, we have Nocks that began in New England and Pennsylvania, as well. We need more information on Nocks who’s heritage is from these two areas in America. We also really need significantly more information about our extendeded family in Europe. We are researching this, but we would also like any information from our followers that you can give us. As we know, if you are an American, your family heritage originated elsewhere in the world. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
One more thing: I’d like to thank our friends from Australia for your interest in our Group. Until I started this blog, I had know idea how many Nocks are ”Down Under”! Thank you for your support, Family.
As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to our Nock family members who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our way of life.
Hello Nocks: Yesterday, myself, my cousin Tia Mason Howard, and her children spent the afternoon with one of the senior members of our family. His name is Weldon Nock, and he is ninety one years old. We spent a number of hours just talking about his life experiences, from his service in World War II, experiencing segregation and bigotry of that era, and some of the history of our family. It was a wonderful experience. If you have older relatives, take advantage of their knowledge and wisdom. Our children in particular, need that relationship with their elders. They will not be with us forever.
Sir Norman Lindfield Nock (1899-1990), businessman and lord mayor, was born on 11 April 1899 at Lindfield, Sydney, youngest of six children…
Whitechapel High Street, 1880’s. Many Nocks in the United Kingdom trace their families back to this area of London.
Gary Nock Live! Hey peeps… Just to let all you football fans (Villa fans in particular!) know that I’ve rewritten part of my song ‘Make It Better’ as a club anthem for my beloved Aston Villa Football Club. We’ve put some classic footage to the song including the moment that Peter Withe scored the winner in the European Cup Final! Oh you didn’t know? YES! We won the European Cup :)
