Welcome to our web site…

…which is dedicated to the research of our ancestors, the Wakefield and Lytollis & Ward families, who had their origins in the UK & Ireland. Although the main family lines are ‘Wakefield’ and ‘Lytollis & Ward’ there are many other associated surnames connected by marriage. Descendants of the original families have since spread to Canada, USA, Australia & New Zealand.

Non-members can view selected information through the ‘Families’ menu at the top of this page. Access to the main family history area is by registration or invitation only.
