Wing Buckinghamshire ~ One-Place Study

Latest updates 30 January 2014 in bold

Wing is a large parish situated on a hill in the Vale of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, very near to Leighton Buzzard. The parish church of All Saints, where our ancestors were baptised and married, is Saxon in parts and would have witnessed a lot over the intervening millennium! The surrounding hamlets and properties include Ascott House (now in the care of the National Trust) which has been home to Wing's prominent landowner families over the years including the Dormers and the Rothschilds. The neighbours may have been a little bit posh but most of the folk of Wing were humble agricultural labourers working on the surrounding farms.

On this site you will find a variety of genealogical information about the people of Wing. To the left there are transcriptions of various primary records, to the right I have taken a more holistic approach to this one-place-study. If you are researching your own ancestors from Wing, I would love to hear from you - please email me at Note that I do work full-time and am almost certainly in a different time zone to you, but you should hear from me within a day or two.

I'd like this to be a collaborative effort. If you have photos, stories, family trees or other snippets about Wing and your Wing ancestors to share, I would be delighted to see them. My blog will keep you up-to-date with what I'm currently researching - maybe you have some relevant information to contribute?

DISCLAIMER - While I have made every effort to ensure accuracy, this cannot be guaranteed. As with anything found on the internet, you are advised to check the original documents - besides, seeing your ancestor's signature or mark yourself is much more satisfying!
