Verification & Concerns Returns to 'Top of Page'

  1. This William Wicking is the only one identified as being born between the years 1700-1740. (age 16 at marriage to age 60 at birth of youngest child). Sources 1-6. This person is very likely to be correct.
  2. There are a variety of names used instead of Wicking. These are all felt to be spelling variations. The names identified are: Wicken, Wickinge, Wickens, Wickyng, Wekyhge, Weekyng, Weckynge, Weeknge, Weekinge, Weekyn, Weking, Wyking, Wycking, Wykinge. There are Wickenden's in East Grinstead & Cowden, but these have been excluded as considered another name.
