This site concentrates on the family which established itself in West Suffolk about a century after the Norman conquest of 1066. We know that the name originates from Italy, and the family  migrated through Europe and entered England  via Normandy. Whether this was as part of the invasion or some time after we may never know.

What we do know is that there are many more ‘Lucas’ Families in France than in the UK. This site follows the Lucas family name, but occasionally I investigate the female lines.


You will find complicity in the slave trade and  involvement in criminal activities resulting in execution, imprisonment or forced transportation which can be embarrassing. Many crimes were however committed out of hunger and desperation. These as well as opportunist relocating has helped the family spread throughout the world and I have tried where possible to include these branches.


There are some rubbing of shoulders  with royalty, and  cases of the accumulation of wealth and prestige  followed by it’s subsequent loss.

You will also find heroes but also cases of  madness frequently appear, it’s something we have to live with !
