Origin of Surname

The name is possibly an alternative for Hacquoil, which has a variant Hacquart but may also have derived from Hauchard, which is believed to originate with ancient Norman hauchier and ancient French hausser/haussage meaning a proud and arrogant person. Hauchard is a common name in Normandy but Hocquard is not.

However, a French source suggests that the name is synonymous with Hocher, and is derived from an old French word hochier, a dice player. This source goes on to suggest that Houchet is a Normandy surname with the same derivation.

Early records

Jean, Philippot and Richard are listed in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550. The earliest record found in Jersey is in 1510 with the spelling Hoquart.

Various spellings can be found within the same family in Jersey church records.

With over 600 baptisms in our database, the three family trees we have researched so far are clearly far from exhaustive and we would welcome the submission of new trees for the family.
