Pogue is a sept of Pollock. They are both pronounced Poke.
The g in Pogue is qu in scottish. Poque/Pollok/Pollock means: lake oak. Poll mean lake or body of water and ock means oak. This info comes from the Pogue Book. Robertus (Robert) de Pollok is the son of Fulbert, the proginator of the Pollok/Pollock/Pogue line. Robert was the only son that produced a male heir to continue the line. The Pogue/Pollok/Pollock family is one of Scotlands oldest familys and, at one time, one of the wealthiest. is an interesting site. has the Pollock crest on one of its pages. George Pogue
