Re: Cock Family, Roche ,Cornwall,England

In Reply to: Re: Cock Family, Roche ,Cornwall,England by Alison Bell of 371

I have been trying to research a group of Irish sea traders known as the Ui Liathian who settled somewhere in Cornwall around the 5th century. I have been tracing the Cock/Cocke name from County Cork, Limerick, and Roscommon, and the Roche name from County Cork. Does anyone know if ROS is a common prefix for Cornish names? Do the Brittany and Normandy coasts play any part at all in Cornwall's past? I'm also looking for a Walter, William, Thomas, and Christopher Cock from Helston around 1680-90, all involved in maritime transportation. (could be from Roche as well)
All the best,
McKay Cox
