Blocker Name Meaning
German (Blöcker): occupational name for a jailer (see Block 1). English: occupational name for a shoemaker or bookbinder (see Block); a person called Henry le Blocker is recorded in York in 1212. However, in some cases the English name is of German origin (see 1 above); the census of 1881 records, amongst others, a Herman Blocker and a John Blocker, both born in Germany.
