Wills Genealogy & History

Wills is an English patronymic surname from the first name Will, a diminutive of William. William comes from the Germanic roots wil, meaning will, and helm, for protection. It may also come from the West Saxon wiell/wiella, Old English well/wella, and Middle English will, which means stream or spring and would have been used to indicate someone living near one. Wills family history begins with Walt Wille, noted in the Curia Rolls of Norfolk in 1207. Notable members of Wills genealogy include Vermont Governor and Lieutenant Governor William Wills, British actress Anneke Wills, and British explorer William John Wills.
