WYSE Family HistoryRecorded as Wise, Wyse, Wisdom, Wiseman, Wisman, and no doubt others, this is an English surname. It is of pre 7th century Anglo-Saxon origin, and derives from a byname applied to a "learned person". Such a person would have been regarded with mingled fear and respect in medieval days, and would have been regularly consulted on legal and other matters. It was occasionally applied to someone acquainted with the occult arts. The word "wise" derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century "wis", meaning "knowing".

John Wyse married Elizabeth Duggan (b. 1810 Wexford), they immigrated to American in 1849 (Princeton, WI).
John Wyse is the grandfather of my great grandfather, Sylvester Dominic Wyse. (Son of William M. Wyse, father of Dorothy Ann Wyse, my grandmother.)??
As our family legend would have it, we are related to the founding father of Waterford, Ireland, Thomas Wyse. I have not been able to find the connection. Any help would be appreciated.??
