Wroteslay Early Origins



The surname Wroteslay was first found in Staffordshire where the family name was first referenced in the year 1170 when Adam de Wrotteslega held estates in that shire. Tettenhall-Regis was an ancient home to the family. "Of the several excellent residences, the largest is Wrottesley Hall, the seat of Lord Wrottesley, surrounded with good land and wood."

For those interested in further research of the early history of the surname we recommend the ancient Harleian Manuscripts which are in the archives of the British Museum. These Manuscripts are a Catalogue of the Herald's Visitations between 1510 and 1600. This distinguished surname Wrottesly is recorded in Manuscript: 1043, folio 45; 1046; 1077; and 1173.
