Waller Family HistoryThis most interesting surname is mainly of Anglo-Saxon origin, and has four possible interpretations. It may be a topographical name for one who lived by a stone-built wall, such as that around a town or sea-wall, from the Olde English pre 7th Century "w(e)all", wall. From this source also, it may be an occupational name for a stone worker or mason. The second origin is also a topographical one, from the Olde English "waell(a)", a spring or stream, denoting someone who lived at or by a stream. The third possible origin is from the Olde English "wealan", to boil, which was probably given to one who boiled sea water to extract the salt.
