The Lewknor family takes its name from the village of the same name in Oxfordshire. The village takes its name from from the Old English name of its owner Leofeca, recorded in a lawsuit in 990 CE. The first recorded bearer of family name was Geoffrey de Leweknore, who appears in 1273, in the "Hundred Rolls of Oxfordshire", during the reign of King Edward I.

The Lewknors of West Dean and Tangmere were prominent recusants. See Michael C. Questier, Catholicism and community in early modern England: politics, aristocratic patronage and religion, c. 1550-1640 (Cambridge University Press, 2006), pp. 44-45, 49, 58-59, 152, 153, 234, 260, 396.


The goal of this project is to resolve duplicates, standardize naming conventions, and ensure the quality of the profiles pertaining to the Lewknor family, originally from the hundred of Lewknor in Oxford.
