Summary

  • Newsletter for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Sikes (Sykes) families who came mainly from England, especially from Thornhill in Yorkshire County, also from Leeds County. Other Sikes ancestors came from Holland, Lithuania, and Russia. Many immigrated to North America in the 1600's-1800's. In the 1600's, some settled in Newfoundland (Canada), Barbados, and in Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. In the 1700's, some settled in Georgia, Maine, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Vermont. Some focus is on (but not limited to) descendants of Richard Sikes and his wife, Phebe. Richard was born ca. 1618, in Stafford County, England, he moved to Roxbury, Massachusetts, and died in 1676, at Springfield, Massachusetts. Another Richard Sikes lived in Springfield, Massachusetts, and moved to Suffield, Connecticut in 1682. During the 1800's, some moved to Ontario (Canada), Australia, and to Alabama, California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. Later descendants also lived in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, and elsewhere. Some had African American bloodlines. Some may have had American Indian bloodlines. Records include births, deaths, marriages, obituaries, and other significant events extracted from shared genealogies, census records, grave stones, land records, passenger records, wills from England and the United States.
