WALLACE Family History

Is this the most famous Scottish surname? It is certainly near the top of the tree given the exposure of tradition, myth, and Hollywood, who manage to combine both. It is therefore a surprise to most people to know that for many nameholders, the origin may not have been Scottish at all, but English, Welsh or Breton! Recorded in the spellings of Wallace, Wallice, Walles, Wallis and Wallas, and first recorded in England, the surname derivation is from the Norman French word 'waleis', meaning a 'foreigner'. In England this was generally taken to mean a Welshman or a person living in the border counties of England and Wales, or a Celt from Cornwall, or a former Breton who settled in East Anglia after the Norman Conquest of 1066! Quite a range of possibilities...

    My great great grandfather was born in Virginia in 1802. His name was William Wallace, ha. In the 1880 Census he stated his father was born in Ireland. My father was Grady Benton Wallace, but alas I am a female and only child and did not pass on the Wallace name.

    My ancestors for the Wallace line fun back to the father of William Wallace. We descended from his brother though. It was all males until my gramother, and then my mother and me being the only females, therefore not carrying the name. However my great uncles do have the name and it continues the males Wallace line. I'm sure there are hundreds of other lines that have descended. That being said what I have heard about William Wallace and the way this family is, sounds like it runs in the blood. My grandma was 5ft 89lbs and full of spitfire. They are proud people.
