Wise Genealogy & History

Wise is an English surname from the Old English wis, meaning knowing. It was applied to people who had had more schooling than most, defined as any schooling at all in the Middle Ages, before the advent of widespread literacy, and often extending to matters of law and others requiring a good deal of education, sometimes even the occult. Wise family history begins with Aedwin Wise, added to the Pipe Rolls of Devonshire in 1176. Wise genealogy includes a few renowned people, such as Confederate General Henry Wise, Mulroney Minister of Agriculture John Wise, and award-winning physicist Mark Wise.
