    Exclamation pluralizing last name: Hancock.

    I'm writing a history essay, and I want to show the plural form of the last name Hancock.

    Do I write "The Hancocks" (this shows as an error in my spellcheck), "The Hancock's" , "The Hancockes" , or just leave it as "The Hancock" ?

    Please help me. I can't seem to think properly at all today, and I need every bit of help I can receive.

    Do I write "The Hancocks" Yes, that is correct for the plural form. (not possessive) (this shows as an error in my spellcheck), It's not an error if your meaning doesn't require the possessive form.
    The Hancocks had a strained relationship with the Carlsons.
