Was looking for the family crest one night and found your delightful site. I’m a direct descendent of Thomas Weekes (born in 1644 in Of Foots Cray, Kent, England). My branch left England in 1853, when Robert Weekes (born 1790 in Bexley, Welling, Kent, England) decided to move his family out here to Utah, he died on the wagon trip over (depressing story, I got from some relatives journal.) Sometime in my great grandfathers life he changed the spelling of the name to Weeks, also somewhere along the way we started pronouncing it weeks, like in; days, weeks, months. If anybody knows more information about Thomas Weekes (1644) please send it to me, my grandmother would love to fill in some blanks.

My great maternal grandfather was Harry John Weeks, who died on 4 August 1943, aged 34. Harry's parents were Edward Sidney Weeks and Emma Weeks. His husband was Hilda R M Weeks of Clay Cross, Derbyshire. I would love to obtain any information about my Weeks relatives.

Joseph Weekes enlisted in the 74th Regiment of Foot in 1831 at the age of 21 years. His father was Joseph Weeks, County Antrim, but Joseph (the soldier) was born in Lisbon, Portugal. His birth year was during the Napoleonic Wars, which may be the reason for Lisbon. In 1834 he went to the West Indies. We presume him to be a full or half brother of our ancestor, Edward Fullerton Weekes, whose mother was Jane Fullerton (and father a Joseph Weekes of Antrim.) If anyone has more ideas about soldier Joseph, we'd welcome them. thanks.

Looking through the guestbook to see who else of the Wykes of Swedish origin has found their way here, the only one I found was my sister Cecilia, who signed the guestbook back in 1999. We are not related to most of you people, the name Wyke was taken, some time around 1900. Some of us live in Sweden, some in Denmark, a few migrated to the USA. I have relatives who know more, if anyone's interested. Regards, Jörgen

"Wow", what a great webpage. I am a gggg granddaughter of James and Susan Wykes. My Great Grandfather is Ern (Fardy) Wykes from Bournewood via Yeoval. My Nan is Avery Wykes (Austin). I am currently updating a family tree and seeking any helpful information. Maybe at a later stage, this updated info could be added to your website.
