Wheeley History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Wheeley family

The surname Wheeley was first found in Cornwall where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. Cornwall was a land set apart, a land of mystique and quaint customs, more strongly related to Brittany and Wales than to England. It was not until the 10th century that they submitted to the Saxon rule of England. The first record is of Isabella Wele in that county. Since then, their influence has moved east into Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
