Hi,

I see that you are tracing the Wickens name in England in the late 1700's.

An ancestor of mine, Joseph Wickens arrived in the Nova Scotia Canada 1825 census. He married Isabella Bruce. He may have arrived from England or most likely was a loyalist who arrived from New England at that time. There is a Joesph Wickens listed in the New York census of 1790-1870 that may be a possibility.

I am thinking that Elizabeth Wickens may possibly (long-shot) be related. I have heard that it is a common name from North Eastern England near Newcastle.

Michael,

Hi.To be quite honest, I do not think that we have a common link. The name Elizabeth Wickens was very common in England but I feel that my ancestors headed to Australia and then onto N.Z. Best luck in your search. Adrienne

Geoffrey,

Hi and thank you for your response. I am seeking information on the wickens side of my family tree but really do not have much of a clue in where to start. All I know is that my ggggg grandmothers name was Elizabeth Wickens and she married John Excell on 19th March 1805, at St. Thomas, Lewes, Sussex. I do not know where or when she was born or who her parents were. If we have someone in common and you would like further contact, please advice me of your e-mail address as I would appreciate any information. Thanking you...Adrienne

Hi,Geoffrey, Forgive me not contacting you via e-mail but I'm new to it and not very adept yet. However, here with a long shot,as my husband's cousin was called Stanley,-son of Ernest Nancy(Derby).Just wonder if he could have called him after a favourite uncle and if his brother was George,as we have no other Stanleys in the fanily.Realise that your fathr would be much younger but was he perhaqps named after his father or older relative?If you reply here, I'll slip back to check. Thanks, hopefully, Bee
