Harry, I stumbled on your pages while doing a search for Weeks family history information. I came into one of the child pages from Bing, but I have to say that I was certainly taken aback when I went to the homepage. You bear a striking resemblance to my brother Gene, who passed very suddenly on Sept. 11, 2008. So, it's not hard to believe that there are common genes there. My branch of the family hails from Washington State. We came here from upstate New York via San Francisco, California. My great grandfather went to the California gold fields after mustering out of the Union Army at the end of the War Between the States. We are currently researching the Weeks family history, so I will be back to do some more digging. I've bookmarked your site so I won't lose track of it. I will certainly share any information I find in my travels back up my family trees. Thank you for providing a wonderful resource! Sincerely, Richard L. Weeks

Most interesting to stumble across your website. I look forward to being to do more than just glance through it. I am grandson of Admiral Ralph Sneyd who took the Wykes to his name for reasons of the North Wyke connection.

I am one of numerous descendants of Thomas Weekes, the English emigrant of 1635. Our family extends broadly throughout the U.S. and Australia. Our name's pronunciation rhymes with fix.

Very interesting site! I'm researching the Wicks family, of Steeple Ashton, Wiltshire. Daniel Wicks (b.1850) was born in the village before moving to London abt.1880. Daniel's parents were George and Sarah Wicks.

I wonder can any light be shed on my line of Wykes's please. My great grandfather was George Henry Wykes, also known as Harry Wykes and buried under the name Henry George Wykes. He was born in 1876 in Smethwick. His father was James Wykes and his father was John Wykes from Groby Leics. When my g grandfather George Henry and his wife Clara Mason had their last child in 1913, George seemed to vanish. I do know he was buried though in 1948. I'm trying to fill in the gaps. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks for a wonderful Wykes site. Makes up for being at the end of the register for all of those years! Kim
