Wisong Early Origins



The surname Wisong was first found in Germany, where the name Wisong made a great early contribution to the feudal society of Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs, where it continued to play important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts as each group sought to enhance its power and status in an ever changing territorial profile. The earliest known record of the surname Wisong is of Hans Weysung, who was a pot maker in Ulm in 1505.
