|About Wileman/Wildman/Whileman family
The Wildman/Wileman/Whileman family of Measham started with John Wildman born on the 21st August 1664 in the City of London, England.
He married Elanor Barton who was born in 1642 also in the City of London. They were married in the Temple Church Of England, London.
The family moved in the 1680's to live in Measham where their first child was born and so the story continues.............
THE HISTORY OF THE WILEMAN FAMILY OF MEASHAM DERBYSHIRE
The surname Wileman / Wildman has resounded through the small village of Measham, Leicestershire since records began in the village in the middle of the 1600's.
However even though there were Wildmans in Measham the village population was about to get a little larger with the arrival of two Londoner's by the name of John Wildman and Eleanor Wildman nee Barton.
It is highly possible that the couple were already related to the growing population of Wildman's already living in the village as there would be no logical reason for them to move to Measham otherwise.
John and Eleanor married in the city of London in the Holy Temple Church of England on Tuesday the 16th day of August 1681 in front of family.
However after that we do not hear of John and Eleanor's life in London again all we do know is that 3 years later John and Eleanor take the journey to the village of Measham to set up a new life and as far as we know never return to London again.
On the date 4th April 1685 John and Eleanor gave birth to they're first child John Wildman Jr named after his father John.
When John Wildman was young he would have seen the complete rebuild of London City after the great fire, which wiped out hundreds of homes.

PLEASE NOTE:- that errors sometimes crop up even by our own web masters. The famliy of George Wileman born 1841 and 1843 were wrongly attached to John Wileman b 1814 and Thomas Wileman b 1808. A marriage certificate will be posted to support this error. Appologies to our members. Also please check Derek Wilemans comments in our guest book for the error in his famly line.
