Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Vyse family history?The Vyse surname is thought to be derived from the Old French word "devise," meaning a "dweller at the boundary." It falls into the class of local names, that is, names derived from a place where the original bearer once lived or held land. It is plausible that some bearers of Vyse took the name from one of several places in England: Viza in Ashwater, county Devon, Vyse Wood in Morthoe, county Devon, or Devizes in Wiltshire.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Devise, Vises,Vize, Vise, Vice and others.
First found in Sussex, where Robert atte Vise was recorded in the Subsidy Rolls for that county in the year 1327.
