Wallichville Early Origins



The surname Wallichville was first found in Durham where the first record of the name was of William Walcher (died 1080), Bishop of Durham (1070-1080). He was appointed by William the Conqueror to hold that see and was the first non-Englishman to hold the position. The Scottish invasion in 1079 by Malcolm III, plundered Northumberland for about three weeks. Wallcher with over one hundred retainers for safety tried to resolve the wrongs but the Northumbrians attacked the Norman party. The Wallcher led retreat to a nearby church proved fruitless as the party were forced out when the church was set afire. They were all killed when they left the blazing church. This same person is recorded as Walcher de Lorraine in the Domesday Book census of 1086. William de Wallichville was given lands at the conquest in Derbyshire and is son given lordships at Nottinghamshire after the Domesday Book in 1086.

Wallichville Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Wallichville has been recorded under many different variations, including Walchar, Walcher, Wallichville, Valecherville, Wallich and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Wallichvilles were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
