stóc (stoc ?). A word occurring mostly in local names, either alone or in compounds. The meaning seems, like that of stów, to be place (in the first instance perhaps a place fenced in, cf. (?) staca), and both words remain now only as names of places, Stoke, Stowe, or as parts of such names, Basingstoke, Tavistock, Walthamstow. As may be seen from the Index to the Charters, Stóc occurs frequently, some of the references are here given :--Ðis is ðara þreora hída and .xxx. æcera bóc æt Stóce, Cod. Dip.
