WELLYNGS/ Wellies Wellington Heights, California
Wellington is a a County Town in Shropshire--Welling could have stood for water wells-or- people called by that name Ton was the name of a Saxon Village. Wellings first seem to appear in Shropshire in strength around the 15th century. Of course some experts say all these names would have gone back to a common ancestor. The home counties have Wellingham--Wellingborough-Welling- Wellington. Many of the Wellyngs/Wellies; The shropshire families decend from, would have, if family legend is to be believed, have decended from the above. Most were warrior Knights, there are Wellings (which includes Wellesley) found on Honour Rolls of many battles, from Agincourt --to--present date. Since its clearly a Saxon Name, perhaps its origin lies in the land where the Saxons came to England from. WHERE? Oh yes Germany. We see the ancient town of Welling.
