Walker Genealogy & History

Walker family history shows that this surname originated in Scotland and England and is derived from one of the steps in the making of woolen cloth. Walking, spelled as "waulking" in Scottish and "wealcan" in Old English, involved walking on damp raw cloth to clean it and eliminate oils and impurities as well as to thicken the fibers. The worker who performed this task was known as a walker, fuller, or tucker. In Swiss and German, Walker translates to M´┐Żller, also spelled as Miller. Walker genealogy includes football player Herschel Walker and Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple.
