Dicus Family in Cheshire, England
Posted by: Evelyn Rowland (ID *****7653) Date: October 18, 2012 at 20:57:53

A dictionary of English and Welsh surnames:
Dykehouse, Dicas = "at the dike-house, the house by the dike".
John Dicas/Dicus of Hondbridge, Cheshire 1631, Wills at
Chester, ii.65, 1688-9. Buried - Mr. Humphrey Dicas,
Caterbury Cathedral, page 128, London (1884), 1,0.

Richard Dikus married 12 June 1692 at Holy Trinity Minorities, City of London, Hannah Carreway.

I do not have the surname, Dycus, in my genealogy, but I
saw these families when I worked on my Dyke(s) family, some
of whom are found in Cheshire, too. So far the DNA tests
prove we are not related. They are distinctly two different
families.
