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.
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 :)

Below is a photo of the grandson of Henry Nock, the London gun maker. His name was Henry Wilkinson. He was the son of James Wilkinson of Wilkinson Sword, and Margaret Nock. We have yet to find a photo of Henry Nock.
