Origins of surname

From the old English wic, this is a name given to someone working on a dairy farm, or living close by. The suggested variants shown below may all have the same derivation, but we are far from convinced that they can all be considered variations

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of William Henry, son of John Weeks and Mary Ann, in St Helier in 1830. It was another 60 years before a family became established in Jersey
