Wylie, Wiley or Willey, however you spell it, you have a rich history. Your ancestors and cousins have traveled the world, from Glasgow to Sydney, Belfast to Russia, and all points in between. They’ve been clergy and criminals, authors and publishers, sailors and farmers. A very rich history indeed.

Please read our About page and then take your time to look through our collection of research articles.  Origins of the Surnames Wylie, Wyllie, Wily, and Wiley, etc.  is a great place to start.  It details the beginning of our journey from a small town in the turbulent south west of Scotland.
