The first people to use the name Whylie were a family of Strathclyde- Britons who lived in the Scottish/English Borderlands. The name comes from when someone lived in Dumfries.

Whylie Early Origins



The surname Whylie was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhn Phris), a Southern area, bordering on England that today forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway Council Area, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



The North American colonies beckoned, with their ample land and opportunity as their freedom from the persecution suffered by so many Clan families back home. Many Scots even fought against England in the American War of Independence to gain this freedom. Recently, clan societies have allowed the ancestors of these brave Scottish settlers to rediscover their familial roots. Among them:

Whylie Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • James Whylie, aged 19, arrived in New York in 1812

Whylie Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century

  • Thomas Whylie arrived in Auckland, New Zealand aboard the ship "City of Auckland" in 1870

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Fides
Motto Translation: Faith.
