As I said on “The Bicknell Family” page, Sidney Algernon Bicknell wrote tomes of history of the family but the Director of the Somerset Historical Society came out saying that his contention that we are all descended from the Baron de Pavilly who came over with William the Conqueror is… balderdash. For the moment, who knows? It is in our interest to firm up the facts and use those tools to be more certain about our origins.

This page will be a portal to research and information arising out of the work you do alongside us, and in contributing to this site and The Bicknell Association. It’s going to be fun… and instructive.

In the meantime look at the extraordinary material already in The Library and in the Posts listed on the home page down the left.
