Research shows that the name Wherton has been around since the ninth century. Wherton was originally from English origins. The earliest documentation of the name was found in 1265 from the county of Cambridgeshire in England. In the fifteenth century a large group of travellers known as Wherton's migrated to the British colonies in Australia.
A survey taken by HM Treasury in 1944 recorded frequent use of this family name. The 1911 census carried out by H.M. Treasury for the UK and Ireland shows the largest number of Wherton's in the county of Devon. 124
Traits of the Wherton family
Happy and friendly is how previous generations of the Wherton family can be described. The surname is historically linked with Saturn, causing Whertons to often be contradictory and mysterious. In love they are jealous, not intentionally so but because of the basic inconsistency of their pleasing nature. Like children, they require constant attention, encouragement, and time, getting upset if they do not get what they want.
