Stanley, I'm not your cousin yet! I hope as we continue to build out our trees we'll see how we may be related.

According to the Wikitree Relationship Finder, we may be 20th cousins once removed. If that is true then our common ancestor is Margery (Venables) De  Bulkeley 1369-1459. she is your 19 the G Grandmother, and my 20th G Grandmother.  My grandfathers French ancestors seem to be related to EVERYONE. His mother was a Dubose, and related to the Scarborough's. Through them, it seems I am related to most of France. The Dubose line goes nowhere because there is a debate over the ancestry of Pierre Dubose, husband of Françoise Olivier DeLauville.

You can add Dykes to your followed tags. After you do that, you can see changes to profiles with surnames you are following. If you click on the tag, you’ll get a list of others following that surname.

If you search for Dykes with no first name, you’ll get a list of profiles on WikiTree 

As you add more detailed sources and begin to populate siblings, you might find more relationships. Look how much you can get from this, for example,

South Carolina Deaths, 1915-1965," database with images, FamilySearch( : 18 July 2017), John Geddings in entry for Bessie Elizabeth Ingram, 25 Jun 1928; citing , Ingram, Bessie Elizabeth, 1928, Department of Archives and History, State Records Center, Columbia; FHL microfilm 1,913,695.

Hi Stanley,

I reckon if we go back far enough we will find a link somewhere.  That you have only the "Dykes" name (same as me) means that your branch of the family will have left the main-line before 1791 when Mary Dykes (only daughter of Fretcheville Dykes) married her cousin Joseph Ballantine-Dykes and moved from Warthole Hall into Dovenby Hall.

I believe my link to the family is via the only brother of Fretcheville to reach adulthood, and that was Wilfred Dykes (1674-1743). It seems he left the family home on his marriage and moved to Workington, and then subsequent generations fell on hard times.

We are 11th cousins Stanley but not through the Dykes family.  We share a grandfather named - John Clough.
