Wow! how many of us are there?! I looked up my family name years ago at one of those craft fare hippy things and the guys there said it originated from somerset area? Wyk - meaning dwelling i think, or land owner? Anyway i'll have a look again when i see my family in Essex (England) and find out what the crest of arms is too! I live in Devon (England) myself now, but really good to know there are so many world wide!

Thought i'd visit the site again to see if i knew anyone. Originally from Selston in Nottinghamshire UK, my father Arthur (deceased 1985) mother Josie (maiden name Greensmith). Father was son of Charles Wykes of Selston, then Kirkby-in-Ashfield. I'd love to hear from anyone that may have records of my Grandfather's father/mother.

We will miss him, Rebecca, He was always very happy to help people with their enquiries and encourage them to carry on. I liked the way he used to say 'Onwards and downwards!' but was the most 'upwards' person I have met.
