ROCKBOURNE
Hypothetical Old English 'Hrocaburna'='rooks' stream', a right tributary of the Avon. The '-s-' forms, sporadic about 1200, may show the influence of 'Rockstead' in the same parish. This was about 1210 'Rokesey, Rokesaye' 1536 'Roksted' 1593 'Rocksithe'. This problematic name may be hypothetical Old English 'Hrocseath'='rook pit' or less likely 'Hroceshaeth'='rook's heath'; or elliptically for 'Rockbourne pit/heath'.
