Prepared by Michael Steer

The Wykes family sometimes known as Wyk or Weekes, were in occupation of North Wyke in 1216. "North Wyke", (also anciently North Wike, Northwick, modernly North Week,) is an estate comprising about four hundred acres, (formerly much larger), located in the northern part of the parish of South Tawton, near Okehamton, about 20 miles from Exeter. The mansion at North Wyke was restored by the Reverend Wykes-Finch, a descendent, at the turn of the 20th Century.
