WOOLSEY Family HistoryThis interesting surname of English origin with variant spellings Wolsey, Woolsey, Woosey, etc. derives from the Middle English given name "Wulsi", Old English pre 7th Century "Wulfsige", composed of the elements "wulf" meaning "wolf" plus "sige", "victory". The personal name was widespread in Suffolk where it gave rise to the surname of Cardinal Wolsey (1475-1530). It may also be a nickname for a person with wolf-like eyes. The surname dates back to the mid 12th Century, (see below). Further recordings include one William Wulsy (1219) "The Assize Court Rolls of Yorkshire", and Richard Wolsy (1313), "The Feet of Fines of Essex".
