WALLS Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a variant of "Wall" which itself has two possible derivations. Firstly, it may be a topographical name for someone who lived by a stone wall, for example a wall built to fortify a town or a sea wall, from the Olde English "w(e)all". In Essex the reference is probably to the sea-walls of Rochford Hundred; in Oxford, London and Colchester, to the town wall; and in Northumberland to the Roman Wall. Alternatively the surname may also be of topographical origin, denoting one who lived by a stream or spring, from the Olde English "waell(a)" (West Midlands), and Middle English "wall(e)", a spring, well.
