Surruque Tribe. Meaning unknown.

Connections. Somewhat doubtful, but they were probably of the Timucuan linguistic group. (See Utina.)

Location. At or very close to Cape Canaveral.

History. The Surruque appear first in history as the “Sorrochos” of Le Moyne’s map (1875) and his “Lake Sarrope” also probably derived its name from them. About the end of the same century, the sixteenth, trouble arose between them and the Spaniards, in consequence of which the Spanish governor fell upon a Surruque town, killed 60 persons and captured 54. Later they probably united with the Timucua people and shared their fortunes.

Population. No estimate is possible. (See Utina.)
