Some Paternal Ancestors of Edwin Brown (“Big Doc”) KUGLER Sr

WOLVERTON/WOOLVERTON1


The name WOLVERTON likely dates from Saxon times in England, when it designated “the village of Wulfhere’s people”. In the Domesday Book, the record of an assessment census ordered by William the Conqueror in 1086 (so he could find out just what he had conquered), it appears as WOLFRE-TOWN. Over the years it has been spelled WOLVERTON, WOOLVERTON, WOOVERSTONE, WOOLFERSTONE, WOLFERSTON, and WOOLFERSTAN. One or the other of these spellings designates a number of towns, estates and manor houses, and a rectory. My atlas lists two WOLVERTONs, a WOOLVERTON, a WOLVISTON, and a WOOLVERHAMPTON, all in England.


Note

1 The definitive source of information on the Wolvertons is Macdonald and McAdams (2001). I also consulted Pickett (ws), Gohr (ws), and Hitt (ws).
