Note
The barely-attested OE rocc does not survive in Middle English. Instead, according to OED, ME rocke is (re-)borrowed from multiple sources,including: AN rokke, OFr. roke, MFr. roque, rocque (c1100); also AN, OFr., MFr. & Fr. roche (end of the 10th cent.), feminine noun, and MFr. & Fr. roc (c1370), masculine noun, probably showing influence from Old Occitan (OED).
