|I am in search of information on the WICKE name. I don't know much of anything except that they settled around San Antonio, TX, possible even around Walburg, TX. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

My ggg-grandmother was Sarah Weeks b.ca. 1804. The family story says that she came from the UK and worked as a milliner in Baltimore, Maryland (MD), saving enough money to send for her sister Mary. (It is possible that their father worked on or owned a slave ship. Supposedly the daughters did not like this which is why they came to the US) Sarah married John Forwood Rigdon on 29 Sep 1825 in MD. Their daughter Mary Elizabeth Rigdon was born in Ohio on 11 Dec 1827. I have a bit more info on this family if you would like it.

Terrific to find a Wykes site. My ancestors came from Yorkshire, originally a Thomas Wykes,who we know very little about. Would be so pleased to find out any information about him. His son was William.

I have been fortunate enough to have access to a book on my husband's Weeks ancestry. It goes as far back as William le Wrey m. Katherine Burnell (daughter of John Burnell). Son Richard Wyke of North Wyke and Cocktree m. Elizabeth Avenell. And more! After browsing this site, I wonder if all the information in this book is correct. It's close. I can see now that I will be able to go even further back than what my husband's book did. What a great site!

I'm amazed to find there are so many Wykeses out there! My father, Paul Wykes, is notorious for not keeping in touch with anyone, so I never really knew many rellies. (At least the primary-school family tree assignments were very breif). It's wonderful to see that the Wykes family really does exist!
