Surname search
Home

There are over 2200 hundred descendants of William and Sarah Sykes.
The table below shows details of the first four generations of William's and Sarah's descendants in Australia.
Details of subsequent generations are on the pages listed under the 'Descendants' column (below right). Alternatively, use Surname Search to find you or your family in the Sykes' trees.

Clicking on the blue underscored names in the first four generation columns takes you to a 'text' version of the history of that branch of the family.
Note, all Sykes descendants: This site is based on Geoff's book, written around 20 years ago. It now needs updating! Please send me updates on the stories you have of your recent ancestors (especially deceased relatives, mostly fourth or fifth generation). Tell us what they did and where they went, and their children if relevant.
