Meaning & History

A variant spelling of the Sussex surname Puttock from the Village of Puttock, which itself derives from the Old English "Puttocke" a bird of prey, the kite.

An old folk tale from Sussex talks of a man called Jim Puttock that slayed the Knucker (an old English and Germanic term for a dragon) from the Knucker Hole in Lyminster, Sussex, which can still be found today in the grounds of Lyminster Church, minus the Knucker!
