Abstract: We consider the groups defined by the presentations

$\displaystyle \langle a,b:{a^2} = {b^n} = a{b^{ - 1}}ab{(aba{b^{ - 1}})^{\alpha - 1}}a{b^2}a{b^{ - 2}} = 1\rangle $

and investigate their structure for small values of $ \alpha $. This forms part of a general investigation into the structure of groups defined by presentations of the form

$\displaystyle \langle a,b:{a^2} = {b^n} = w(a,b) = 1\rangle .$

Connections between these groups and the Fibonacci groups are also explored.
