Origins of surname

This is a name derived from the old English stocc, meaning stock or trunk of a tree, so it would have been applied to someone who lived near an area of stump clearings, or in a place so named.

Early records

The first recording of this family name in Jersey is the baptism of James Stokes, son of Charles and Isabell Wilson, in St Helier in 1770. There is then a gap of over 40 years before the next baptism, and the family becomes steadily established during the 19th century and into the 20th.
