Origin of the Name Hancock

The Hancock family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The name Bergener is usually of locational origin and is derived from the many places named Bergen, especially in Germany . This name has a number of variants including Bergen, Berger, Beregan, Berrigan, Berrygun, Burgan, Burgen and Burgin. Other variants of the name can be derived from the places found in Scandanavia, notably in Norway. It has been speculated that these names and placenames may be a consequence of the invasion by the German Burgundii tribes in the fifth century. An early record of the name in England is found in the 'Domesday Book' that records a Walter Burgoin being granted lands in the County of Devonshire in the year 1086. The coat of arms or family crest shown here is an ancient and distinctive design the origin of which dates back over a millennium. Initially these armorial bearings were first used by feudal lords and warriors on the field of battle as a means of identification but later became extant among the general population. From Europe the name Bergener spread to America, Canada, Australia and the new world beyond.
The Hancock coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Hancock descendants.
