Dimock Family HistoryThis unusual and long-established surname is of English origin, and is habitational from a place called Dymock in Gloucestershire. The place has an uncertain etymology, but it may be derived from the British word which is akin to the Welsh "tymoch", pigsty (a compound of "ty", house, and "moch", pigs), but more probably from "din", fort, and "moch", as before. It is sometimes difficult to be precise about whether a surname is derived from an identifying topographic phrase or from a habitational name from some minor, unidentified or "lost" place; this is especially so in the case of multiple element names.
