When the British captured New Amsterdam, all families were required to take a surnames. Pieter Claes adopted the name WYCKOFF, derived from "Wijk" meaning small town or parish (bailiwick) and "hof" which means a court or house. I found many different spellings such as, Wikoff, Wyckoff and of course our spelling of WYKOFF. (P.B.)
