  19. Stocker timeline

    Family lore has my Stocker ancestor immigrating to Cornwall in the 18th century from Austria. Recognizing Stocker as a German /Austrian family name, perhaps all Cornish Stockers are descended from German / Austrian immigrants. Can anyone pinpoint the first Stocker record in Cornwall? Thanks.
