Hello Florence, I too am descended from some of the Bremen W's, notably Herman Heinrich,b.1802. He went to Denmark as a boy and began a line of Danish W's. His father was Christopher W. b.1774 who became a master bookbinder and made Freeman of the City of Bremen in 1801. I have a little more info about this lot thanks to extensive research carried out by my grandfather in1933.Apart from the Bremen families I have info on some of the early (c.1400) W's of Westphalia, a 16th C branch from Stralsund, and also the Trondheim Wessels who became known as Tordenskiolds. There are very few W's in England and most of us are related, but I reckon there must be zillions in northern Europe and by the sound of it a large number in the US and Canada. Hope this may be of help.
