About the study
As far as I have established, PULKERs currently living in England, South Africa, Canada, and the US all have a common ancestor, John PULKER, born around 1720, probably in the Oxford area. The area of Iffley & Cowley in Oxfordshire was the focus for holders of the name 1500-1900.
In 1279 there is mention of POLCRE in Radcot.
History of the name
There were less than 100 PULKERs in the Electoral Register in Great Britain in 1998.
