About the Project

The Doxey Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Doxey name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Doxey name.

The Doxey surname is predominantly found in the parish registers of Wirksworth in Derbyshire with Docksey being used in early entries. The earliest Doxey at Wirksworth was Roger Doxey/Docksey who died there in 1628. Back in the 1500s there where Doxey/Docksey families in Weston-on-Trent in Derbyshire, and across the border in Staffordshire who continued in that county.

Doxey is a village and civil parish in the borough of Stafford in Staffordshire, England. Wikipedia entry

WikiTree General One Name Study Text

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Doxeys), by time period (18th Century Doxeys), or by topic (Doxey DNA, Doxey Occupations, Doxey Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

DNA Project

As of October 2021 one male Doxey has Y-DNA tested and a Doxey DNA Project has been started at Family Tree DNA.

Autosomal DNA testing and research in 2018 has confirmed paper research of several families descended from William Doxey of Middleton by Wirksworth (1739-1801).

WikiTree Categories
