Guild of One-Name Studies
One-name studies, Genealogy
In addition to DEXTERs originating in England, many Dutch immigrants to America anglicized their surname DYKSTRA (with variant spellings) to DEXTER. Our study (at present) is not including this group, and we are not collecting data on people once we determine their surname is Dutch in origin.
There are some other spellings of the name DEXTER -- including DEXSTER, DESTER, DEXTOR, DIXTOR, etc. We are unsure if these are variants or simply misspellings.
See our DEXTER website http://alldexter.com, with links to an extensive database of DEXTER births, marriages, and deaths
