Pickwick Family

One Name Study

Pickwicks in America

I have now entered all the Pickwicks in the 1910 American census.  I have entered all the Pickwicks I could find in any American census before 1910.  I am now working on the 1920 census.

It is interesting to see the change in naming patterns.  The Pickwick generation who emigrated from England to America as children have married by 1920.  This generation started naming their children with names that are not common in England, eg Lester, Erskine and Madeline.
