Badcock is a surname of English origin, properly 'Bartcock', or son of Bartholemew.[1] In his history of the Badcock family, published in "Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica, London, 1927" Colonel J.C Tyler writes of his research into the Badcock name: "... One cannot fail to be struck with the great number of priests, parsons and men of literary repute. There are also in evidence merchants both by sea and by land, also landowners, soldiers and sailors, besides those engaged in the principal industry of weaving in Devon and Somerset, which includes the woolcombers, sergemakers and men of similar crafts".[2]
