hello!! the wakehams that i know of originally are from south devon. they emigrated to jersey first (we think) then on to france and came back to jersey where some recide now. the latest wakeham that i know of was a Thomas Watts Wakeham married to an Esther Bisson (common jersey name) who lived in france in the 1800's.
if anyone knows anymore about this family or if this sounds familiar it would be great to hear from you.
