My father John Creek was born in Hampstead, London, England in 1919. His father (my grandfather)Edmund Creek was born in 1870. Place of birth unknown. My Great grandfather's first name is illegible on the marriage certificate. Both G and GG were gardeners - an occupation I am not inclined towards!!Please if anyone can assist me by giving me any further information on the Creeks in the U.K. I would be grateful.I was under the impression until I found this site that the name Creek was derived from American Indians.I have learnt since that it is German.Thanks and a happy new year from England.
