Wheeler Genealogy & History

Wheeler is an ancient English name, originally referring to a master wheelwright. Old English "hweogol/hweol" meant wheel; in medieval times wooden wheels were fragile and required high maintendance, so wheel-making was an important profession. Wheeler family history dates to medieval times in Worcester, where they held a family seat at Martin Hussingtree. American Wheeler genealogy dates to 1619 in Virginia and includes physicist John Wheeler, who coined the term "black hole." Wheelers are also found in Ireland and Wales with spelling variations Wayler, Whaler, Whealler, and Whyler. The griffin on the crest and lions on the coat of arms symbolize a valiant soldier with fierce courage.
