ROAKE Family HistoryAccording to the famous International Genealogical Index, this surname is English and recorded as Roake, Rock, Rocke, and the diminutives Rockie, Rockey, and Ruckie. It has several possible origins. The first is residential and described somebody who lived near a notable crag or outcrop. This is from the pre 7th century word 'rocc'. The second source is again residential, but this time for somebody who lived near a large oak tree often used for ceremonial and council meetings. This is a fusing of the Middle English phrase "atter oke", meaning at the oak tree and probably responsible for the spelling as Roake.
