Contact: Mr Christopher Wallage
The name originates in England, initially almost exclusively in the Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex counties. In the 19th Century Josiah Wallage (b. 1829) migrated from Steeple Bumpstead, Essex to Australia and there are a small number of Wallages there today. By late 19th Century there was further migration to London and the English South Coast but the name remains rare and there are probably less than 500 English Wallages today. The last official count was in the 1911 Census which had 226.
