The Wheat name is of old English origin and has been known in England for over 1000 years. From the early days of migration in the 17th century and throughout the following centuries, the Wheat family name has spread across the world. As the population has increased and family members have ventured ever further from their roots, their origins have become seemingly more and more obscure. THE ENGLISH WHEATS uncovers the name’s earliest origins in England and follows the family’s development thereafter until the end of the 19th century. The book is perhaps the most comprehensive ever written about the English Wheats.
