The roots of the distinguished German surname Wyble lie in the former duchy of Swabia. The name is Middle High German in origin, and can be translated as "bailiff, court usher." It is likely that the progenitor of this name held this occupation.
Early Origins of the Wyble family
The surname Wyble was first found in Swabia, where it is believed to have first emerged. The occupational
origin of the name makes it likely that several branches of the Wyble family emerged independently in the various High German speaking regions of Germany
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.
