Hello there,
Re HISCOCKS name,you will find the HISCOCKS name in the Frome ( Pronounced Froome,local dialect) area of Wiltshire.You will find the name changes from HISCOCKS HISCOX HISCOCK HISCOE and many more different spellings,the reason being that folk in those days could not read or write.When asked their name by a census auditor or anyone in authority he would write it down as it sounded.The people could not dispute the spelling because they could not read.
Ron.
