The one-name study into the Wakley surname started in 2014, growing out of a number of years researching my mother's maiden name.
The study was registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies in the same year.
The registered variants of the name are Wakely & Wakeley. There is an incredible amount of crossover between all registered variants, with the three often being interchangeable - as is common in the times when people weren't as literate as they are today.
