Census, Parish and Other Records

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  If you are considering contributing your data, you may want to look at some notes on File Formats.
