Centred largely in the East Midlands there are 4 or 5  Wileman areas in the  UK that are 
surprisingly focused on a single location, such as Measham in Leicestershire....ref Banwall 
index described in 'stories'. There are other concentrations of Wilemans in Bedfordshire / 
Lincolnshire Lancashire and Yorkshire. A glance at an old map of England 
suggests the potential influence of he the 'five boroughs' on the distribution, there Is also a 
clear influence of the industrial revolution and the possibility that the Quaker movement may 
have played a role.

Variants: Wilman,Willman,Wollman,Wildman,Wyldman,Wyldeman,Willem,Whileman,Willeman

The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Symon Willeman, which was 
dated 1279 and was written in ,The Hundred Rolls of Cambridgeshire, during the reign of King 
Edward 1 when surnames became necessary due to ntriduction of persona taxation known as Poll 
Tax. There are  early recordings of Wil(l)man which include Adam Willeman 
and Walterus Wilman both of whom are recorded in the 1379 Poll Tax Rolls of Yorkshire, whilst 
later in 1563 Harry Willman married Alis Worship at St Antholins Church, London.


A familiar surname that is widespread across the the UK and many other countries. It does not 
have the areas of concentrated population associated with Wileman name. The larger numbers 
spread over a wider area can make it challenging to research. However it does have the benefit  
of almost always being spelt correctly. ...something that doesn’t happen with the other three 
surnames. The main focus is on the East Midlands specifically Derbyshire 

Variants: Baeker, Baekere,Baecere, Baxter, Backer, Becker, Bakere. Backere

The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William le Bakere, which 
was dated 1177, in the "Pipe Rolls of Norfolk", during the reign of King Henry II   known as 
"The Builder of Churches", 1154-1189. Early recordings include such examples as Robert Bakere, 
a witness in the Assize Court Rolls of Lancashire for the year 1246, and Walter le Backere 
in the rolls of the county of Hampshire for 1280 a.d. The female form of the name is 'Baxter

We have only recently come to realise that a significant part of our heritage lies in the West 
Midlands - Staffordshire/Worcestershire/Warwickshire. Stourbridge is a particular focal point. 
There appear to be a large number of relatives in this area that we did not know about, largely 
as the result of most of the associated records being written as Rollason not Rollison.

Variants: Rollinson, Rolison Rolinson, Rolason, Rollason, Rollandson,Rowlandson, Rowlanson, 

The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William Roulandson, which 
was dated 1332,in the Subsidy Tax rolls of Cumberland. Random examples of the recordings 
include John Rollingson in the Lancashire Wills record for the year 1596, whilst Stephen 
Rollosson married Christain Morrison at St. Dunstan in the East, Stepney, on September 8th 1713


Based in  the west of Ireland we knew documenting this family tree would present a few 
challenges, specifically families are often very large and names are often repeated through 
the generations, they are widely dispersed having gone in waves to Australia, USA and England. 
Add to that many Irish genealogical records were destroyed and you find you’re at quite a 
disadvantage. However thanks to some family documents we have been able to make progress.

Variants: Quinlivan, Quinlan, Quinlin, Caoinleain (original Gaelic)


As the family tree develops new surnames become increasingly important and can ultimately 
become more central to the family history than  one of the original names within the group of 

Goodhead, Hall, Johnson, Foster, Yates , Child, Shanahan, Flynn
