Other Willcock(s) Families in Devon

This is a supplement to our main Willcock surname page. It covers a number of other Willcock families who lived in the area of Devon which we are researching, around Buckland Monachorum. Some of these we know are connected to our own Willcock tree, but their history has not been fully researched. Other families below may possibly be related, but we have not yet found the link. In some cases we have traced individuals but not the entire family.

Listed here are members of these additional Willcock families from this part of Devon. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, for example these could refer to a different person with the same name. The list does not include children known to have died in infancy (but we suspect that some infant burials are unrecorded). Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that you can connect any of the families listed here or can shed any further light on them.

We have used the spelling Willcock in the lists below, although some branches preferred Willcocks and other spellings appear in earlier records. We have indicated the possible family relationships as far as we can determine them, in some cases with a brief note on what we have deduced from parish registers and other records. Where appropriate there are links to related families, either here or in the main Willcock page. All the places named below are in Devon unless otherwise indicated.
