Comment: Before I moved to Maine a few years ago, I had never met a Bicknell who was not a member of my immediate family. I have met myself (another Richard Bicknell) and a Bucknell (who thinks she might be a Bicknell). Through the Association I am looking forward to meeting many more…

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.

Comment: Hello Bicknells! This is truly amazing and remarkable! I have been interested in the Genealogy since I first read through the Bicknell Genealogy book my parents received at the Bicknell reunion when I was an infant. I am happy to see that all this information has been cataloged and know that it will be added upon throughout the years. Thank you to everyone who has helped out with this. I can’t wait to read more.

Comment: Greetings from a cold and sunny Athens, Ontario, Canada. Our Bicknell family hail from Barnacle, Bulkington, Nuneaton area or Warwickshire. 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. I have also taken the Ancestry dna test and have our tree available. My last Bicknell relative was John Thomas Bicknell 1897-1980. His father was Arthur Bicknell and his father was John Bicknell. Let’s make some connections and a huge thanks to Del for making this possible.

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

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.
