Early Origins of the Lewker family


The surname Lewker was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The family name was first referenced in the year 1211 when Henry Leucnore held estates an that shire. Henry Lewkenore succeeded in 1273. "[The parish of Denham in Suffolk] was anciently an extra-parochial district, the property of the Lewkenor family. Sir Edward Lewkenor built a church here, which he endowed with tithes; and the place was consequently erected into a separate parish, comprising about 1300 acres, including a large wood. Denham Hall, the seat of the family, is now a farmhouse." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
