PECK Family History

This famous surname is English. It has at least three possible origins. The first was a metonymic occupational name for someone who dealt in weights and measures, either as a civil official responsible for ensuring that goods were sold at the correct weight, or a corn merchant, one who dealt in "pekkes". A pekke was a medieval measure of dry goods and equivalent to eight quarters of twenty eight pounds each. This was a large weight, but one that was used even into the 20th century in England. The second source is from a variant of Peak, a topographical surname for someone who lived by a pointed hill.
