The Wannops of the Border Country

The Wannop Family Tree and Gallery

The Wyse Family Tree and Gallery

A substantial family tree encompassing many of the Cumbrian Wannops has been compiled, although not embracing all branches. The Wannop tree was originally compiled by the late Arthur Wannop - who farmed in the Isle of Wight - and was translated to a computer record by Glyn Ross of Canada, whose mother was a Wannop. The tree was subsequently considerably revised and extended by Urlan Wannop from original sources at the Cumberland County Records Office.

This family tree was compiled by Urlan Wannop from material originally collected by Henry Taylor Wyse when he researched the painting of the Wyse family tree. Henry Taylor Wyse had researched back to Henry Wyse (Banker 1839-1910), to which Urlan Wannop added the earlier generations from material gathered from online records, some graveyards, including the Mains on the edge of Dundee, and other original sources.


Henry Taylor Wyse

Henry Taylor Wyse was a polymath and artist, who practised many of the visual arts throughout his long life. Of most interest to historians, are his furniture design from the early 1900’s, and the Holyrood Pottery that he ran from 1917 to 1927.

Examples of many of the arts he practised are shown in these pages, along with an extensive gallery of Holyrood Pottery taken from within the family and other sources.
