One of the earliest occurrences of the name was in 1265 of Dame Maud Dymmok who held land near Chichester in Sussex. About 30 years later Robert, father of Elias Dymmok appears in Braemore, north of Fordingbridge in Hampshire, and not far from Salisbury Wiltshire. A Thomas Dymoke became mayor of Southampton 3 times between 1491 and 1502. Of course there were also the Dymokes of Scrivelsby, the Kings Champion, dating back to Edward III.
In 1635 another Dymoke set sail for America and turned out to be the progenitor of many of the Dimmick families today in the States.
