The Wykes family sometimes known as Wyk or Weekes, were in occupation of North Wyke in 1216. "North Wyke", (also anciently North Wike, Northwick, modern: 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 family's other houses include Wickington and West Week. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. This rare book was produced from a copy held by the New York Public Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
