WILLERS Family History

This interesting surname with variant spelling Willer, derives from the Old English pre 7th Century "wilige" meaning basket and would have been a metonymic occupational name for a maker or seller of baskets. The name may also be a patronymic form of the Germanic male given name "Willard", composed of the elements "wil" meaning will or desire plus "hard" brave, hardy or strong. The surname is first recorded in the early half of the 14th Century, (see below). Recorded in the "Middle English Occupational Terms" of Hampshire are John le Wylyare (1327), and William le Wyliere (1332).
