From my observation i noticed most people think spell casting is all and only Spam. Yes you can say that almost everything on the Internet is more or less Spam this days. I could have with no two thought said just that last year but Dr Brave a spell caster made me see there are still few good spell caster out there. Before now, i wasn’t a good father or a husband. I almost lost everything i had. As a matter of fact i lost everything i had. I lost my two kids and my wife and my job because i am an alcoholic. I was mostly always drunk throughout the entire day i pushed everybody away that really wanted to help me my wife my friends my mom i was just all about the alcohol. For two years i lived just being a drunk who had no one and who had nothing to live for, i was totally useless.When i realized myself it was rather to later even after i became sober and started fixing my life. She was remarried and living happily and wanted nothing to do with me. I wanted my wife back and wanted to be a part of my children life. Me wanting back my family was not only a step to get my life back together it was also a step to prove to my wife though i am an alcoholic, i can stay sober and be responsible for her and my children. Heaven knows i tried all i can to prove to her that i have changed and i am ready to love her with my life just like how it was before i ruined it. I got her back even with the help of Dr Brave a spell caster i was referred to on the Internet. Whatever he did for me made my wife and my kids come back to me. All that was required from me were materials needed for the spell casting. I wish i can write in detail about how all this happened to make those who need help believe that spell casting can yield good result but it really about the heart if you think Dr Brave can help you with your problem contact him here note:use this email the way you use yours in the stand email format and i promise you, he can take all your troubles away, As his spell casting is harmless and don’t have any effect in ones life.(Mr Jarrid Wilson from USA)

My name is Rahela Begum, i live and work in Oxford shire, UK. My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids, I felt like ending it all, i almost committed suicide because he left us with nothing, i was emotionally down all this while. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr. oyinbo the spell caster which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet, I came across several of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and also spell to get a good paid job so on. He is amazing, i also come across one particular testimony, it was about a woman called Vera, she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped his email.After reading all these, I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We resolved our issues, and we are even happier than ever.Dr.oyinbo you are a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster, Try him anytime, he is the answer to your problems. you can contact him on ( or or call him +2348074066640. he is the best caster that can help you with your problems.

I am wondering if you can help me out. My son is to be best man at a friend's wedding next year and he is required to be dressed in a kilt. I am trying to find out what the Wiseman tartan looks like.
My grand father came to canada around the tens or twenties, and was originally from Aberdeen. He married an Irish girl, Beatrice, and they moved to Toronto, where they had 2 boys, James- my dad- and Jack, both deceased. I don't really know much else, but when I look on websites I see there are a number of different tartans so I thought you might have a suggestion.

Comments and suggestions, please. Scottish heraldry
There is no such thing as a family coat of arms, or a coat of arms for a surname. A coat of arms is granted to an individual, can only be used by him, and can only be inherited without alteration by the eldest son. Any other person connected to that individual has to apply for a separate coat of arms which is differenced - i.e. will have small alterations to indicate the relationship to the original holder.
Check the web site for the Lyon King of Arms for more information.

Comments and suggestions, please. Wisemans from Ballywatermoy/Craigs in Cty. Antrim
My paternal grandmother's grandfather was ARCHIBALD WISEMAN (born in 1813) from the Ballywatermoy Townland in what is now the area of Glarryford in Central Antrim. The Ordnance Survey of 1833 has him leaving home, 'bound for America', at that time, but it wasn't until 1836 that he booked passage on the Bark "Lanark" out of Liverpool and came to America. Once there, he went to the town of Newburgh, in Orange Couny, New York state, where his older brother James (b. 1808) had settled a few years before. I believe that Archibald and James's mother's name before marriage was Maragaret Dunlap or Dunlop, but I don't have a Christian name for their father. If anyone who reads this
has a connection to these folks, either by family or geography, please post a reply to this here. Thanks.

Is it possible that my Catherine Wiseman is part of your family? She married Charles Henry Grim, a ship carpeter on the Ohio River (B. 1-4-1822) and lived in Freedom, Beaver County, PA. The 1860 census shows them living in August, GA where he was building boats for the South! They were back in Beaver County by the start of the Civil War and one son, Francis Marion Grim, fought for the North. Any ideas?? I can't seem to find anything on Catherine Wiseman at all. Thank you.

Comments and suggestions, please. great start i hope!
I have just started looking at finding out about my family tree and found your site. It looks like a great start! i have only just started to read through, but much of what i have seen ties in with where my family are from, Aberdeen in Scotland. Most are still there, i was born there but now live in London, England. i would love to get something started, but am alittle overwheled and feel that much has already been done on what may be the Wiseman "branches" on the tree and i guess i need to figure out how to tie those in. I then also need to look at the other branches... but hopefully this could be a great start!
i'm going to dig around and see where to start... this really is day 1!
Hopefully you can give me some guidance which would be most appreciated!
Wow...lots to look through so i'll get started.

My Wisemans first appear (to ME) circa 1800 in County Antrim NI in the Townland of Ballywatermoy in the old Ahoghill Civil Parish. Various orgins of the family name have been proposed, along with traditional Lowland Scots Plantation settlement ca. 1700. Other theories include a Dutch mercenary with King William's forces at Boyne in 1690 who liked the land and settled there. My direct ancestor, Archibald, left B'moy in 1833 and arrived in New York State USA, settling with his older brother James, in Newburgh, New York. He was my paternal grandmother's maternal grandfather. Known present US descendant/researchers are now living in Beaufort SC (surname Wilson) and in Bridgewater NJ (surname Mergott).
There are also later generation descendants with the surname Flemming and Pagano.

His father was apparently, a John Wiseman, but this is where the story gets muddled. John was supposedly also from the Gaspe area, so how was it his son was born in New Brunswick? the other children were born in bonaventure County of the Gaspe. Where did John come from? New Bandon, New Brunswick was apparently created when immigrants from Bandon , Ireland arrived. The only Wiseman I've discovered through that story is a Joseph Wiseman who married a women with last name of Hornibrook ( or something like that.) Don't know how to proceed from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated

My ggg or gg Grandmother on my mothers side was originally from County Cork. Her mother was Erinnish but her father was a Scotsman with the name Wise (was changed from Wyse upon arrival to America). I don't have the resources to discover any more, because my Grandmother and Grandfather have passed away, and no one was really interested in the family history, which is a shame, and I seem to be the only one left that is proud about it. I am at a loss though.
Talk about being at the base of a rather huge wall...
So I don't know where to begin trying to find more with the verry limited amount of information I have/don't have.

Whilst researching my husbands family history I have been told by two seperate family members that a family member married "Lord Wiseman". I have discovered information from the Times obitories that Lord William George Eden Wiseman married for a third time to Joan Mary Leseur, daughter of Arthur PHELPS of Harrow. Arthur Phelps was my husbands Gt Grandfather
. Information suggests that Lady Joan Wiseman is the mother of the current Lord John William Wiseman.
I would be interested to know if anyone has further details of this third marriage, I am particulary keen on knowing how old Joan was when she married Lord Wiseman as I have been unable to find her birth in the UK.

Visited my Wiseman ancestor's one-time homesites in Ballywatermoy Townland, near the village of Cullybackey in County Antrim, NI, with my son two weeks ago. My direct ancestor is Archibald Wiseman, who left Ballywatermoy in 1833 and was in Newburgh, NY, USA along with his older brother James, by 1838. Took photos of a ruined homestead once belonging to a Patrick Wiseman (d. 1917), a probable nephew or cousin to Archibald and James. I have a photo of the ruined cottage.

Reading your biography Bryan I think I may be able to shed a little light on the origin of the talent for your play writing (even if it may be a bit of a side step to your direct line). I have found the late ERNIE WISE (of MORCOMBE & WISE fame) in the outer branches of the WISEMAN tree. I distinctly remember sketches where Ernie would announce ' and now for a little play what I wrote'!
His line (if I am correct) tumbles down from JOHN WISEMAN & REBECCA CARTER who married in 1778 and lived in HICKLING, NORFOLK.
I am pretty sure that they also link in somehow with my BRIGHTON WISEMANS. They had links to PENGE and BROMLEY (MIDDLESEX) which is where ERNIE'S family were.

A very interesting web site. My Wisemans come from Gardenstown, Gamrie Parish where the name was sometimes spelled Weathman or Weithman in the early 1700s. Interestingly, there is also a link by marriage to an Ogilvie family also in Gamrie and possibly Boyndie. I would be very interested in hearing from any others who have similar interest in those areas.

Hello everyone, from Victoria, BC (western Canada). I'm researching my family history and I have Wiseman ancestors from northeastern Scotland. I am wondering if anyone might have any info on the following people:

Starting with the distant past and working forward:

William Wiseman (no dates), married to Jane ___ (born about 1795)

they had 3 children - James (born 29 October 1818, Portsoy), Henry (born Jan 25, 1825) and Alex (born 1831)

James (born 1818) went on to marry a Margaret Patterson (born 1820 Macduff), and they had many children (Henry, Margaret, Jane, Helen, William, Thomas, Mary, Agnes, James).

James and Margaret's oldest son Henry (born March 8, 1855, Macduff, died in 1934, Fyvie), married a Christina Ironside (born 1854).
Henry and Christina had a number of children (Jeannie, John, Harry, Wallace, Eric...).

It was Henry's daughter Jeannie, who married George Reid in 1902. Jeannie and George Reid are my great grandparents. They went on to have a son Henry George Reid (born near Lumsden, 1905), who emigrated to western Canada with his young family in 1939. Henry's son was John, my father.

Most of my family research thus far has been in the Lumsden area (Cook, Reid and Smith families), with some peripheral folks from the Rhynie, Gartly, and Strathdon areas.

I would really appreciate it if you had any information or leads to share. I would be happy to share anything I have with you.

with kind regards,

Shelley Reid
Victoria, BC Canada.

I'm 17 years old and I live in Australia, New South Wales. I am related to the earliest documented Wiseman, who was an auditor for King Henry the 8th in 1622. It would be interesting to find out a bit about my ancestors and distant relatives, who are all over the world now. Captain Charles Wiseman came to Australia in the 18th century, and since then, the Wiseman name has spread widely throughout this country. It has been interesting reading this site.

Looking for info related to GEORGE WISEMAN who married Jayne Boyne. He ran a livery business in Garmouth, where they had five children between 1893 and 1902: George, Alexander, Elizabeth, Isabella and Boyne (my father-in-law, who emigrated to Canada in the early 1900s). Isabella also emigrated, but to the U.S. (Boston).

If this means anything to anyone else, we'd love to hear from you.

Hi to Michelle from Inverness. As your Wisemans come from the north east of Scotland, it could be that there's a common link with some of the others from around there. Mine all came from the Rathven area. For some reason there was a strong group of Wisemans in the NE coastal region - Elgin, Banff and so on. Good luck with your search - there's lots out there for you to find!

I am a Wiseman by marriage. I am researching the Wiseman clan for my husband and our three boys.

My husband is John William Wiseman, son of Edgar Hadley Wiseman and Shirley Henrietta Glendenning.

Edgar is the son of Perley Ernest Wiseman and Christine Estelle (Devlin) Wiseman.

Perley is the Son of William Ernest and Mary Agnes (Beers) Wiseman

William is the son of William and Esther (Hinton) Wiseman.

This is a far back as I have traced the family so far. The family story is that three brothers left County Cork Ire. and arrived in Canada during the 1840's around the time of the famine. I first found William and Esther and three children....William E. Mary Jane, and Artemus on the 1880 Canadian Census, Bathurst, Glouster, New Brunswick.

Common first names in this branch are:John, William, Paul, Bessie, Daisy, Hazel, Mary, Edgar, Edwin, Carl, Walter,

other surnames related I know of:Glendenning, Devlin, Flora, Einboden, Fink, Hinton, Beers, Reed, Wright.

If this might be a link to anyone please e-mail me at

My Wiseman family comes from Banffshire area in NE Scotland, particularly around Rathven. The earliest I've got is Alexander Wiseman b.1766, who married Margaret Cuy , and they had Isabella 1788. Isabella married Alexander Woodman, or Wood, in Rathven 1817. Isabella is buried in Portsoy. Can anyone help me with this Wiseman family?

I also have Norfolk connections with Wiseman, but through marriage. A number of Wisemans married into the Pratt family from Smallburgh. Any help through this connection would also be great.

Hope to hear from some of my Wiseman branches soon. By the way, does anyone know why the Scottish Wisemans seem to come from mainly NE coastal parts of Scotland? There's a tiny pocket of them along the Morayshire coast in the 18th and 19th centuries, but it's rare to find them just a few miles east.

Good luck everybody!

I have a complete brick wall on my Wiseman line.

My GGFather was Ambrose Wiseman born C 1836. I have his marriage certificate to Mary Ellis dated 24 May 1874 in St Pauls church Tongham Surrey. This gives his fathers name but it is almost illegible, it looks like Harvey or Harry or Henry and shows him living in Tongham at this time. Shortly after the marriage he was living at Croydon where their children Rosetta Mary b C Aug 1875, Ambrose b 12 Apr 1877 (my GFather) and Elizabeth Maria b C Aug 1879 were born. Mary died during the birth of Elizabeth Maria and my GFather Ambrose was the only child to survive into adulthood. I also have Ambrose in the 1881 census still residing in Croydon with the place of birth not given. I have spent many hours trying to find this family in the 1851 and other censuses without success. Ambrose died between 1881 and 1900.
I have recently discovered a possible indication of a connection with Norfolk by the death record of Alfred Ditcham Wiseman O-D 1890 in Croydon aged 55 (DOB C 1835). This suggests to me that Alfred Ditcham may be linked with my Ambrose.
Alfred Ditcham Wiseman was bap 16 Sep 1835 in Islington son of John Wiseman and Sarah Pratt. He married Martha Hering who was born in Gt Yarmouth C 1835. His elder sister Sarah Ann Ditcham Wiseman was bap 22 Nov 1833 in Gt Yarmouth so the family clearly originated from Norfolk.
John Wiseman was the illegitimate son of Ann Wiseman and was bap 18 Mar 1810 in Palling. Presumably the father's surname was Ditcham.
I'm sorry to go into so much detail but if you know anything of my Ambrose, perhaps from a census, it would be a major breakthrough. Hope to hear from you

I have other entries on this list but thought I should include a sideways link of my BRIGHTON, UK line. I know we are linked with them but as yet I have not estiblished Some of this line emigrated to ILLINOIS whilst others remained in BRIGHTON or St. MARYLEBONE in LONDON.

I have nothing further back than MATHEW WISEMAN (b. about 1746) and SARAH SIMS (born 1753). MATHEW was a SERVINGMAN (8 years prior to marriage and SARAH a MAID. They married in CLAPHAM (WEST SUSSEX). It is quite likely that the couple were IN SERVICE to the SHELLEY family at this time as CLAPHAM is a tiny village with only one or two establishments where they could have been employed. I should love to find some confirmation of this possibility.

MATHEW and SARAH`S first child was christened in CLAPHAM 5/5/1779. They appear then to have moved to BRIGHTON where the following children were baptised:
SARAH 1783

The christian name MATHEW followed down to at least the next three generations and the remaining christian names were also repeated with the inclusion of LUKE,JAMES, GEORGE and HENRY.

GEORGE HENRY WISEMAN was my G.G.G. Grandfather but just to confuse me, two of his children named him as RICHARD HENRY on their marriage certificate. I am at a loss, as to why?

Other linking surnames that tie in are as follows:

Hope somebody may recognise this line,

I have always hesitated to sign into a Guestbook such as this one because it seemed that one more person flailing around on an ancestor search was the last thing needed. However, here goes: I am the great grandson of one John Wiseman who moved to Danville, Virginia in about 1840. He married a Mary Downs in 1842 and had two children, one of whom was my great grandfather, Henry A. Wiseman. John Wiseman was born in Pennsylvania (at least according to Henry), and his family was British (or so my family has always understood: quite a number of us are classic "Black Scots" in appearance as were both John and Henry). He would have been in his 20's in 1842. He died in the late 1840's while on a business trip back toward Pennsylvania (or so we have always understood). Any leads?

Have just found your website and emailed John who recommended I post some infor about my family. My maiden name was Wiseman and was born in York, however the Wisemans originated from Elgin. GG Granparents James Wiseman & Margaret McConnell married 16 Feb 1826 in the parish of Elgin. Also GG Grandparents Alexander MacDonald and Christy (Christian) Barron, married 4 June 1841 at Inverness. Both men were shoemakers. One of Alexanders' daughters, Elizabeth married John Wiseman (James' son) on 8 March 1865, age 19 and 23 respectively. John was an upholster. My parents used to say that he was upholsterer to Queen Victoria. Not sure how accurate this is. He did move around the country a lot, at least 2 of his 13 children were born in London. They finally retired in York, England, where they both died. Their children's names were as follows:
John, David, Alexander, Charles, (my paternal Grandad), Thomas (my maternal Grandad) - my parents Alice Macdonald Wiseman and Ronald Macdonald Wiseman being cousins), James, Elizabeth, Christine, Helen, Margaret, Ann, Dorothy, Jessica.

I understand that John had a brother Francis, christened 1 June 1839, Elgin. He too was an upholsterer. There were at least 2 sisters, Maxwell, & Helen, all from Elgin. At the time of the 1881 Census Francis was in Hammersmith London. Hope this is of some use to anyone wishing to trace family. I would welcome a response from anyone who can shed any further light on my family.

Many thanks

Great web site! I don't have much about my grandmothers Wiseman family so maybe you can give me some pointers. Her parents were: George Wiseman B-? D-Aug 13 1922 his wife
Liddle F. Metz Wiseman B- April 2 1869 D- Dec 13 1936 Both are buried in Poage Mills Roanoke Co Roanoke Virginia. This I got from my grandmothers sister said her parents came from another country and she has no idea.
So as you can see I don't have much to start with. They always lived in Roanoke Virginia, that's all I have.
If you can direct me somewhere to get started on this I would be most thankful.

Believe I am from the English line although there is some confusion in my father's papers regarding this. He had recorded that his first ancestor in the United States was Joseph, yet everything I am finding indicates that this is not correct -- it appears to be Thomas Wiseman, who was born in 1672 in Norfolk, England, died in 1716 in Lancaster, PA. He was married to Elizabeth Quadling (?).

I have not yet read all of the info on your site but certainly will get started soon. Maybe this will provide some answers. Thanks for all the info.

My interest in the WISEMAN line stems from my late mother who was a WISEMAN prior to marriage.
The family were in BRIGHTON, SUSSEX U.K. right back to the early or middle 1800s.
GEORGE was born in LONDON (possible son of JOHN and MARY).
George married MARY ANN ROBINSON (LEWES, SUSSEX) in 1827.
One of their sons was RICHARD HENRY (married AMELIA HAMMOND).
RICHARD HENRY was a GILDER/CARVER who, on his marriage certificate in 1864 gave an address of TENISON STREET,
His daughter LILLIAN KATE (born 1871) became a BURLESQUE dancer and ACTRESS.
LILLIAN gave birth to my grandfather, CECIL HARRY HOPPER WISEMAN in 1892. Links and tie-ups hoped for.

have done some research but only back three or four generations. Therefore I am uncertain as to our connection
to the families/clans you have mentioned. Here in the US, there seems to be a connection between the Wisemans and the Ollis or Hollis family. I would love to hear from you if you have the time. Thanks!

It looks to me like mine is a very different family surname, but just thought I'd check it out. My great-grandfather John WEISS came from the central part of Germany (Bavaria) around 1845 to settle briefly in Manchester, Maryland then came west to Woodland Twp., IL in about 1853. He changed the spelling of his name to WISE after leaving Germany.

I am interested in information about my 8th great grandfather, Judge John Wise, born in 1617. I have fragmented information left me by a 2nd great aunt but don’t know how much of it is based on fact.. I believe John Wise was from Devonshire, England, and settled on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, probably Accomack County, in 1635. He married Hanna Scarburgh (or Scarborough.) Other family names associated with the Wises are West, Custis, Blackstone, Riley, Robinson, Hodges, and Stansbury.
I’m looking forward to hearing from some Wise men and women.

Some of this family also were in Springfield, OH area. Does any of this ring true with data you may have? My grandfather was William Bascom STEWART, son of Manley T. STEWART. His sister was Rusha Stewart SNYDER, believed to have been married to a Tom Snyder, who allegedly died in OH in the mid- to late-1800s.

My Wise ancestors come from the Eastern shore of Maryland, specifically Tilghman's Island, Wittman, St. Michaels. My father's middle name was Wise and he was born on the 4th of July. For many years, I thought he was named so because he was such a wise man. After acquiring the family bible after his death, I learned of our Wise ancestry linked to the Horneys and later the Harrisons.

My Grandfather was John Wiseman Francis and I am wondering
if his middle name has anything to do with the Wiseman family as it seems like an off second name. He was born in
1870 in Canada, his father was James Francis born 1848 in
Canada, Mother was Annie Mae Stewart (farhte Duncan Stewart and Ann McPhee). James father was William Francis born 1802
in Redruth England, his wife was Isabella White. As you see there is no ancestor with the last name of Wiseman, but there could be other grandparents that I am unaware of.
Do any of these names sound familiar. Thanks

There you are right across the other side of the world in Canada, and here I am in Australia, thousands of miles away, yet we have a common bond - our name - 'Wiseman'. Sorry, but that is the way you should spell it. :-)And not only that, our fathers were both in France round about the same time during WW1. Look forward to seeing you soon on ICQ.
