origin of the name makes it likely that several branches of the Wyble family emerged independently in the various High German speaking regions of
during the Middle Ages. The first known bearer of the name was Burcardus qui Waibil, who was a resident of the village of Lellwangen near Überlingen in 1200. The young Wyble family played a major role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
