"The families of the parish of Swalcliffe, which until the late 19the century included the parish of Sibford, have three unusual characteristics: The length of their connection with the parish; the number of freeholders that they included; and the vigour with which they thrust out branches from this small remote village all over the Kingdom. The Gilkes family is a good example under all three heads. It was established there as early as 1525, and as will be see probably over a century earlier, and members of the family still live at Swalcliffe and all round the neighborhood.

It is almost certain that John Gylkes, or Jylkes, master carpenter, belonged to this family. He was first employed by New College on the hall and stable of their rectory of Swalcliffe in 1397-98, and on farm buildings there in 1408-9 and 1412-3, and was therefore very probably a native of the village.

At the Lay Subsidy of 1525 two comtemporary Thomas Gilkeses were assessed as freeholders, one as of Sibford Ferris and the other as of Sibford Gower."
