 Rob Hockley's Homepage
Rob researched the Hockley family in Surrey (Woking, Knaphill, Chobham, Bisley, Bagshot, Frimley) and Hampshire (Yateley) from 1680 to the present day.  Rob has a lot of data on Hockley's in these locations.
Steve Cordery's Homepage
My Hockleys (so far!) are all based in Little Dunmow with an offshoot who migrated to Naburn in Yorkshire.
