Welcome to
the Wickhambreaux One-Place Study

Wickhambreaux is situated to the north-east of Canterbury in Kent. Dating back to Roman times, the name is believed to derive from Wich (coastal trading settlement) and Ham (homestead or settlement. A predominantly agricultural settlement, the village centre features the 14th century church of St Andrews, a 16th century pub, some Tudor and Regency homes and a large watermill.

The Wickhambreaux one-place study commenced in 2014 with research into the Victorian census records and that is continuing to expand into earlier documents.
