red mail WISE / WERNAM in and around WANTAGE
GEORGE WISE was born circa 1746 and married ANNE WERNAM 1768 in PAKENHAM SUFFOLK. I don't know where either were born but George is 'of Wantage'. They settled in SOUTH FAWLEY and had six children. Elizabeth 1770 James 1771 William 1776 George 1778 John 1781 Lucy 1784 All born in SOUTH FAWLEY and George senior was buried there in 1818. The children and the burial of George senior have all been verified. There are very few Wises in Fawley but quite a lot in surrounding villages and lots of Wernams. There are virtually no Wernams in Suffolk and so I think they could have been from Chaddleworth, the Letcombes, Harwell etc. I know one son moved to White Waltham but am having trouble finding any of the other children because they appear to have died before the 1841 census. If you have any connections with WISE or WERNAM please get in touch.
