Families covered: Stucley (Stewkley) of Affeton

It appears to us that the name of this family varied more than most. Nevertheless, BP1934 uses "Stucley" throughout whilst Vivian mainly uses Stewkley for the early generations but moves to "Stucley" for the later generations of most of its branches. When we first prepared this page we used "Stukeley" as that was probably the most common version used in references to the family from elsewhere. This page was reviewed in July 2012 using Vivian. At that time we considered renaming the page "Stucley1" but decided to retain it as above.
