Willoughby Genealogy & History

Willoughby descends from the pre-seventh-century Old English word wilig, meaning willow, and by (from the Norse byr), meaning an abode or village. The combination means someone who settles near the willows. The family motto is truth without fear. Sir William de Willoughby was a knight who was given lands in Lincolnshire and given the title of Willoughby de Eresby in 1313. Willoughby family history has Robert de Wilgebi as the first known recording of this name in the Early Yorkshire Charters in 1175. Some of the members of Willoughby genealogy include peace activist Lillian Willoughby; public administration scholar and author William F. Willoughby; and television presenter Holly Willoughby.
