Hello. I'm a Walker. I was born in Puerto Rico, my dad was born there and my grandfather. I never met my grand father. I was told that I get my last name from a woman who was brought to PR and spoke no english nor spanish. I have been told that the paternal last name should have been Suarez. I'm trying to find information as to where the last name walker originates and how it got to PR. Any suggestions welcome. Thank you.

Hello! My grandfather's name was William Walker, he was born in NZ early 1900s, apparently his ancestors came from Edingborough Scotland. He married my grandmother whose name was Ina Kotua NZ - he was a very handsome man and my father, Isaac (Ihaka) Walker was the eldest of 8 children. We were told there is also Scandanavian / Viking somewhere in the mix. I enjoy history especially within my heritage and I am a very proud person, to belong to this famous surname called 'WALKER'
I see a lot of you are from other places than the states. I am a member of the Walker Surname Project at Family Tree DNA. We now have over 800 Walker males tested with over 50 distinct DNA groups. My DNA is located in Group 13 of the Walker Project. We know though one of my DNA matches that our line most likely came to the states during our colonial time from the Leichestershire area of England. We are always looking for Walker males to test especially from Great Britain. If you are a Walker male or have a Walker male in your line and are interested feel free to contact me at email@example.com

So I am confused - is Walker Irish or English? Or both? Does anyone now of Mary Walker from County Mayo? She is my paternal grandmother. My father was born in Holyoke, MA on 11/04/1921. He was one of eight children. Not sure when Mary Walker came to the USA. She married James Craven. I am not sure where he was from, though I have heard that name can be Irish or English.
It's origins lie around the english/scottish border if memory serves me correctly. I've read a scroll similar to the one pictured above which specified this. I'm a Walker from Northern Ireland. It's not an Irish name, athough like many names I'm sure there's an Irish variation of it.
I'm a walker from the Staffordshire area, UK. Not really been able to trace anything about our family surname on my fathers half but I would love to know more about it
I too have the surname of Walker but the "Walker" side of the family has been in Germany as far as we can trace back. My great grandfather indicated that we were Catholics who escaped England to Germany at some point to avoid persecution but I haven't really been able to affirm that at all. Can anyone possibly shed some light on this?
Hi our Walker clan is Haplogroup G and mainly from the Midlands area ie Lichfield, Burntwood, Tipton, and Malvern. As our haplogroup is extremely rare we are very unlikely to be related to the larger Walker groups of Scotland and Yorkshire. All our family have worked with metal in some form or other over the 300 year history that has been traced.
My last name is also walker but we don't really know about my family side of walker because my grandma is adopted
I have Started my Walker Tree on WIKITREE....it is a Free site and anyone can join...I need some more "WALKERS" originating from Ireland...My GrandFather David Robert Walker was born in Australia as was his Father Alfred...who went to Australia from Ireland then on to New Zealand...feel free to have a look at my tree. http://www.wikitree.com Cheers Dianne
I am scottish, my first and last name are both scottish gaelic and my dad always tells me that our ancestors were keepers of the kings game.. supposedly our family killed all the kings game and was banned from scotland. We then became vikings and traveled to america. Weird stuff, yo.
