Wykes Distribution - United Kingdom


1995 UK Distribution
Based on a Survey of Telephone Directories

This is the first survey of Wykes distribution that I attempted in 1995.  I had access to a copy of the British Telecom Telephone Directory CD, from which I extracted all  583 entries listed under the name WYKES.  

The distribution analysis was done with genealogical researches in mind, so I have assigned all the locations to their old, pre-1974 counties before local government reorganisation.  This makes comparison with historical distributions possible. See the other distribution analyses below.

2001 UK Distribution
Based on UK-Info CD

This analysis of WYKES distribution in the UK in 2001 is based on the 2001UK-Info CD, which contains information about adults extracted from a number of sources including telephone directories and electoral rolls.  The UK-Info database is probably as complete a list of the adult population of the UK as it is possible to achieve without access to the current census records.

The data have been analysed according to the 'old', pre-1974 counties.   There are 1642 individuals listed.
