Corke Family Crest



Corke Family CrestThe English surname Corke, also found in Ireland, is an occupational name for a supplier of red or purple dye or for a dyer of cloth, deriving from the Middle English word cork meaning “purple.” The ultimate origin of the name lies in the Latin "Purpura", the name of the shellfish from which the dye was obtained.. The first written reference to the name was in 1278 when Geoffrey Cork is registered in the Calendar of Letter Books for London. John Cork settled in Charleston South Carolina in 1772.
