Wefer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Wefer family


The surname Wefer was first found in Herefordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1212 when Simon le Wafer held estates and knights fees in that shire.
