This section of the World WYKES Web is an attempt to make generally available WYKES data (and
data for the variant names) extracted from a variety of primary and secondary sources
by myself and other researchers. If you have extracted entries for
WYKES or one of the variants for a particular location and would like to contribute
your data to the project, please email me at email@example.com.
If you are considering contributing your data, you may want to look at some
notes on File
Please note that these transcriptions should not be considered a substitute for an examination of the census records themselves, which may provide more information about other inhabitants of a household or neighbours who may prove to be of interest. Remember also that these lists are transcriptions and as such are susceptible to errors of transcription and omission. Please report any corrections to the above email address.
See also the UK Distribution Analyses for UK distribution maps of the name WYKES and its variants according to census place and birth place as recorded in the 1881 Census.
In addition to Census data
there are many other sources of information of use to the genealogist.
