Genealogical information from a variety of sources is listed on the left hand side.The number of records referring to each Noke Family is given. The Pennsylvania Connection details Nokes's links with the early American colonists. The parish registers record baptisms, marriages and burials from 1574 to the present day, and the census returns detail each family group at 10-year intervals between 1841 and 1901.

Wills provide valuable genealogical information often impossible to obtain from the parish registers alone, as they include details of family names, relationships, daughters’ and sisters’ married names, in-laws and distant relations, and may reveal family connections with other parishes . Accompanying inventories itemise and value the deceased’s property, furnishings, clothing, farm stock, tools and implements etc., providing a vivid insight into his occupation or trade and the wealth and status of the household.
