Does anyone have information which would connect this to Huge Wilsie/Willsie/Willsey/Wilsea, etc.

I saw a Hugh Willsey/Willsie/Wilsie listed as somebody's son somewhere, but I seem to have buried that post in an inner file or lost it just recently.

Hugh, George, Maurice, James, Norman are common male links.
