Is there nobody at all out there interested in this name? I have a Great-Great-Grandfather William Vockins baptised 3 May 1819 in the hamlet of Faccombe in Hampshire (UK). Can anyone claim a related descent?

Hi! My mum's from England, and her whole clan's last name is Vockins.

Hello, Zoe.
My grandmother Jane VOCKINS was the youngest of the 7 children of Thomas VOCKINS and Maria WOODS, and was born in Buttermere, Wiltshire. The other 6 were Sarah Ann, Charles, Mary, Elizabeth, Anne and Hannah. Thomas was born 8 July 1821 in Netherton, Hampshire, the son of William VOCKINS and Jane LEWIS. William and Jane married at Faccombe, very close to Netherton, on 3 May 1819. I can find no trace of William's origins, although it is possible he moved down from Berkshire or Oxfordshire, or of his demise. Of grandmother Jane's siblings I only know a very little of the further lives of 2 of the sisters. If your mother's clan are descended from any of the above I guess it would have to be Charles, and if so I would be overjoyed to receive details. I put this information together about 10 years ago and have got nowhere since.

Hi Graham! Mum doesn't really have any idea. Her dad was WIlliam Vockins 1907-1984, who had a brother Charles VOckins. They were both from Middleton-Stoney. They had a farm in that area. Charles had a son, Michael Vockins, who we're told lives somewhere in the outskirts of London. Sorry, but that's all the information I've got. Does this help at all?

Thanks for the message - this certainly hasn't been the busiest Message Board on the planet!
Alas, I can not make any links at all to the Plymouth area, but since I do not know where the Vockins all went to, that does not yet mean there is no connection.
Will await further news.
Regards
Graham

Another Vockins! Although I do not know if I am directly related, the rare last name does connect us some how. If you can give me a little more information, maybe (with the help of my Grandma Vockins) figure this out.

Hi! I am a Vockins by birth. I am descended from Vockins family of Ramsbury, Wilts. There are many Vockins in that area 1800 -1900 but they all seem to have vanished! My line of ancestors include Frederick born Welford 1875 whose father was George born Ramsbury 1853ish. I haven't really delved much further as I have been researching my maternal line.

Thanks for the message. My VOCKINS problem is more about where the first of mine came from, although I would like to know where a lot of them went to as well. I have a bit of information that will explain more, but at present I am just coming to the end of a 3 week holiday in Phnom Penh, so you will appreciate that I do not have all my data to hand! I will be back home on Monday next and will contact you soonest after that when I've come back down off cloud 9.

Regards

Graham
