My father was Roy wiseman and from wickhambrook in Suffolk would love to know more about my surname
i was looking up the wiseman family tree when i stumbleded across this i was amazed at the facts i found
Hi all I stumbled across these comments as I am trying to find out a bit more about my ancestry. I was watching a television programme about bomber command and there was a gentleman featured called Andy Wiseman. Andy looks very much like my grandfather (now deceased, Raymond Wiseman) and Andy stated that he is Jewish. My Grandad, Raymond, had very dark hair, eyes and was olive skinned, much like Andy on this programme. The programme got me wondering whether there is any jewish ancestry in my family as I had always thought that my name was anglo saxon. My great grandfather was Charles Wiseman and he came from Essex, he moved to Birmingham after meeting my great nan whilst injured and hospitalised in Birmingham during the first world war. Would be great to find out more info. Cheers

What about Weizmann this sounds like the name and is Jewish can any one help on this
My grandmother's maident name was Wiseman and her father's name was Samuel Wiseman and her mohter's name was Eliza. Her name was Flora and she had two sisters and two brothers - Kezia, Esther, Harry and Albert. She was born in Oldham in Lancs but was brought up on the Isle of Dogs, London E14. There has been much debate in the family as to whether they were Jewish or not - I can remember once asking my gran if she was and she was most offended - which in the post war years is not surprising in East End London as there was still a lot of sensitivity to Jewishness. Any news or info re: members of the family - would be really appreciated. Many thanks
Doris i have a strong feelin we're cousins...plz contact me :)

It is jewish, sorry ...it is from the germanic jews, perhaps even russia before germany ,escapees.They came to the eastend uk, cockney area as migrants 1066 and were well established there before the war escapees in the 1940s from germany.Jews are very good with money and business, theyre good investors.The original spellings were like weissman and weiss.Wiseman came from this spelling.
I am an ordained minister and have recently found out that my grandmother was born into the Wiseman family in Jamaica. The wiseman family are reported to be one of the oldest slave owning family on the Island. I thought the name was Jewish but am please to find out it has anglo saxon origins and am keen to learn more about the origins of the name
