Comment: Hello ! I have only recently begun to research my Great Grandfather’s family. His name was Joel Frank(lin)? Bicknell, born 14 Feb 1890 in Muncie, Indiana. Just this week I ran into a Bicknell relative on Ancestry and he told me about having attended Family Reunions in Bicknell, Indiana! I had known there was a town by this name, but never had any idea of a connection to the family. This new friend told me about Vera Reeve compiling a “book” of the genealogy of the Bicknell family. I am wondering if that publication is available to peruse and garner some family history from. This is all very exciting to me. I’m always happy to make connections!
Comment: I see that Susan Mary Humphries email@example.com commented here back in March 2003 “Just trying to see if there is a connection between my ancestor, Elhanan Bicknell and John Constable’s wife Maria.” Sorry I did not see this 19 years ago! I have a similar question which will be of interest to you. Nicola Moorby wrote in September 2022, “Hello, I’m an art historian currently writing a book on the artists Turner and Constable and am getting in touch in case you might be able to me? I’m trying to weave together a narrative where the lives of the two men overlapped (they were exact contemporaries) and I just wondered whether, in your researches on the Bicknell name, you might know if there was any family connection between Constable’s father-in-law and solicitor to the Admiralty and Royal family, Charles Bicknell (1751 – 1828), and businessman, Elhanan Bicknell, patron of Turner (1788-1861)? I replied today 8 September “Dear Nicola. No, in a word. Nice of you to get in touch, and I will be interested to learn more about your studies. You will see on https://clarencebicknell.com/documents/ that we have brought together a lot of research on Elhanan, the father of Clarence Bicknell, botanist, archaeologist, artis, who is of great interest to me because I have the family collection of his albums etc. See our articles
https://clarencebicknell.com/wp-content/uploads/elhanan_bicknell_oil_trade_mark_howard.pdf For thirty years I have been looking for links between Charles Bicknell and his line, well documented on Ancestry.com and Elhanan Bicknell, ditto, but I have found none. When Valerie Lester was researching Clarence’s bio MARVELS (https://clarencebicknell.com/shop/) she and her researchers found no link. The Bicknell Family Association (www.bicknell.net) has just started a YDNA-38 programme but for the moment we have not found any participants in the Charles Bicknell/Maria Constable line. There is no even a “possible link” yet. Maybe the names are coincidental. Maybe in the future we will find a link. Do please let me know what else you discover. I, like you, find it strange that two contemporary art supremos did not know each other. However, a) Constable painted in a classic romantic style while Elhanan saught out contemporary paintings like Turner. If you know these two poles in the present art world you will know that there is mutual disdain and always has been! b) “CONSTABLE’S pictures… never became sought for or valuable during his life” (https://www.bicknell.net/books/as1912/5_farnham.htm Five Pedigrees by Algenron Sidney Bicknell) so Elhanan would not even have known about him, let alone thinking of him as an artist to sponsor or invest in; c) Constable and Maria were country people and would not have bumped into Elhanan or his crowd socially; d) what would Ruskin, Elhanan’s maverick if trusted neighbour have throught of Constable for heaven’s sake? I have copied Turner expert Selby Whittingham in case he can ad some intell. I think we will find that Del Bicknell is a Farnham Bicknell and that he is related to Maria Constable. But (correct me if I am wrong Del) the jury is out.

Comment: I am very interested in generational ties. I have been doing some work with my church and discovered that generational things get passed down. There are many good, however the ties that are not good I am looking at breaking off. I am also so very interested in meeting my generations. I have always felt disconnected and need a sense of belonging. I am doing fine and have healed many things in life but I really want to empower my children and many generations to come. I am so grateful that I have found this website.

Comment: Lovely to find the Bicknell family blog! My 4th great-grandmother was Mary “Polly” Bicknel (yes: spelled with only one “l”) and she lived in the Granby/Colrain, MA area from about 1758 until her death there in 1832. Polly married Aaron Coy and his line is descended from William Brewster of Mayflower reknown. I have been unable to find Mary’s birth record or any clues as to her Bicknel/l parents’ identities and I would like to have that document in the Mayflower Society’s records. I do know that she married Aaron Coy on the 19th of June 1787 in Somers, CT (she is listed as “of Somers” at the time). I have visited her grave in Colrain, where she is listed as “Polly Coy.” I welcome any clues that might help me tie her to her Bicknel/l family roots.

Reply from The Bicknell Association: A team of 10 Expert Bicknell Family Genealogists has started work on a Joint project to bring all of the family history together into one large tree. There are currently over 30 thousand people in this tree and it will take several weeks before the team has checked for errors. Once the tree has reached a good level of accuracy, it will be made available to the public. Any ongoing queries on the tree can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.

Comment: Hi All, Thanks to everyone involved in making this happen, so much information and gradually getting through everything.
I love doing my family history and back to the 1600’s in Puckington Somerset, near Barrington. I am now working on my ancestors through DNA, very new to it and learning something new every day. My tree is on Ancestry and done my DNA through Ancestry and also uploaded it to Gedmatch. My Gedmatch number is AF9518406.
I am happy to help anyone with researching their family history and would love to find some more of my distant cousins through DNA.
Where I live I look out at Beacon Hill and not too far from Bickenhall. So happy to do grave/house scenic photos as long as local to me.
Well done to all involved it’s a great site.

There are a few left in the area, although with different last names. I am very interested in making connections with descendants of our Bicknell clan.

Comment: Well, it is not working right now so I don’t have an opinion yet. I wanted to share what I have regarding what I have researched on the Bicknell/Becknell name.
My gg grandmother Electa Stowell’s 2nd husband was John Calhoun Becknell, originally from Missouri, who lived in Red River County, Texas and then moved to Mariposa County, California in the early 1850’s and got with my gg grandmother after/during her first marriage to Joseph Morris Sr., my gg grandfather. John Calhoun’s father was Alexander Becknell and his father was Micajah Bicknell and so forth back to the “emmigrant” Zachariah Bicknell, who died in the early 1600’s in Massachusetts. So, here is the link to my tree on ancestry.com and then on rootsweb.com please contact me about errors, would appreciate it
sincerely, Terry w. Chaffee, Becknell on my mother’s side

Comment: I think it is wonderful. I really need to contact Phylis Bicknell. Based on my records, Quincy Bicknell had additional genealogy information for a Tower Genealogy Volume 2. I need to know if those records are with the records that are in Boston. I am trying to track them down. I have heard that they are with the Hingham Historical Society but I am being told by them that they do not know anything about them. I hope you can help me get in contact her with her. Thank you.

Comment: I have been clearing out a deceased estate, that of Bernard Bicknell, in Cashmere, Christchurch, New Zealand. He left a pipe organ and a quantity of organ music in his will to my Organ Museum, and amongst the music is a fair amount of family papers and history. Bernard’s grandfather was Postmaster of Oamaru in the 1860s and 1870s, and was born in Tooting in 1842. He married an Armstrong of Kilmore in 1855, and had eleven children. Herman Bicknell was an accountant in Christchurch and Bernard succeeded to his business. There is a framed coloured lithograph of St. Nicholas’s church in Tooting dated 1832, the architect’s view of what their new church was going to look like. If any Bicknell’s are interested in the family history they are welcome to contact me.

Comment: I have used this site many times.
For anyone doing research here and wanting answers, please give as much info as possible, i.e. dates, places etc.
There is more than one John or Zachary for example. Second, it seems to be the concensus that there is a “Northern Bicknell line and a “Southern Bicknell line.
The Northern started by Zachary Bicknell and the Southern by William Clark Bicknell of Virginia. I come from the southern branch. The 1913 Thomas Bicknell book is great but Vera Reeves from Indiana also wrote 2 editions on the southern branch. I have these books.
I am looking for a book by Judge Johnson Hayes called “The Land of Wilkes” a book about Wilkes Co, NC that is said to have early Bicknell Information. The southern branch spelled their name both Bicknell/Becknell. William Clark’s wife was Hannah Rosanna Cash and here family’s line goes down to Singer Johnny Cash. Please contact me if I can help anyone.
I have about 77,000 names in my database. Names prominently researched is Bicknell, Wagers, Cash, Wilson, Tipton, Gentry, Kindred and Haggard.

Comment: The Bicknell Cyber center shows a outstanding amount of work. I enjoy it so much. I think of my Grandfather Brown in Iowa referring to John J. Bicknell as Uncle John, since he married my Grandfather Brown’s mother Mary Jane Chesley who was a Sister of Caroline C. Chesley who married John J. Bicknell. John J. Bicnell was a pioneer in Peterson, Clay Co., Iowa.
