ORROK, a surname derived from lands in the parish of Burstisland, Fifeshire, long possessed by a family of that name, but subsequently the property of J. E. Drinkwater Bethune, Esq. of Balfour. Simon de Orrok is mentioned in the Ragman Roll. The name is supposed to have originated from the rocks on that part of the Fife count, where the lands lie.

The Orroks of that ilk, says Nisbet, for armorial bearings had sable, on a chevron, betwixt 3 mullets argent, as many chess rocks of the first. Crest, a falcon perching proper. Motto, “Solus Christus mea Rupes.”
