Tookeys Fm

Early-attested site in the Parish of Feckenham


We have a pers. name Tok (e )y here in a 13th cent. WoCh and in 1327 (SR). The farm is called Tookes Farm in 1619 (VCH iii. 119, n. 20) and Tuckers on the old 1″ map. It is clearly named from the family. Tookey itself is probably of Scandinavian origin, from ON  Tóki .
