Meaning & History

This surname is of Old French origin. It was initially introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, and subsequently by French Huguenot refugees fleeing religious persecutions in their own country. The great French immigration occurred following the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes by King Louis X1V on October 22nd 1685.

It was a derivation from the Old French clos, with the French prefix du, ("of the"). Variations in the spelling of the surname include, Du Clox, Du Clou, Duclou, Duclow, Dukloe and Ducklow
