WILKES Family History

This name is of early medieval English origin, and derives in the first instance from the medieval personal name "Wilk", a form of diminutive from "Wilkin", another given name which is itself a "pet" form of "Will", from "William", with the English diminutive suffix "kin". "William" as a male personal name was introduced into England by the Normans at the time of the Conquest of 1066, in the forms "Guillaume" and "Guillerme", and rapidly became the most popular given name in England, mainly no doubt in honour of the Conqueror himself.
