|I was told there were only 2 weeks families that entered America. My father is William Weeks and his grandfather owned a farm in northern Wisconsin. A Catholic family with many of my great aunts becoming nuns? Any relation?

For any of the Spratton Wykes family from Northamptonshire. there is a great book and CD data base about Spratton and all the Wykes's who lived in the village. It must be the only village where Wykes was the most commonest name. Look up the Spratton Local History Society on google. The CD and book only cost £11 plus Post and Packing. The CD contains GEDCOM files. Loads of pictures, many faces belonging to a Wykes. Thanks to Harry's daughter for continuing to run the website after Harry's death. It is still the main source of Wykes info.

I am descended from George Henry Wickes, who was land agent to the 5th Earl of Hardwicke at Wimpole Hall, Cambridgeshire in the 1840s & 1850s. If there are any more of his descendants out there, please get in touch. He had 4 children - George, Elizabeth, William (my grandfather) and Mary. I am the only descendant of William so I would love to hear from someone.

Wow, i just googled our last name for fun & am amazed at how many Wykes's there are world wide. Have been working on my husband Garrie's family tree & have noticed how many links there are to James & Susan Wykes who came to Australia in 1852- Molong, Bournewood & Yoeval area. My husband is gg g/s of James & Susan Wykes. G g/s of James & Elizabeth Wykes & g/s of William & Helena Wykes. Son of Keith & Kathleen Wykes. We have 4 daughters so pleased the line will continue with plenty of other families. There are also Wykes in Grafton.NSW. Australia who are not descendants in our line. Regards.
