My family is from Glasgow but there are other seemingly unconnected Wypers in Scotland. We are not from Scotland originally. Found an interesting article recently. Look at

Dear Audrey Wyper,
Good to hear from another Wyper.
I could not get on that web site to read the article you recommended.
Where is your family originally from?
Are you in the USA now?

WE seem to have been in Scotland since at least 1700 although the name changed from Wipper at some point we think.
We are still in Scotland.

I know about Peter and Daniel and their recordings but will try to find out more info for you. There are many Wypers in the Hamilton and Lanarkshire area and I have come across lots of them that are probably part of your line. Do you want info post 1855 or pre 1855.

Thanks for your reply Audrey. All I have on the Wypers at the moment is my grandparents marriage Cert. ALEXANDER WYPER m. MAGGIE DENHOLM POTTER 1881. His parents Peter Wyper and Charlot Wyper. His siblings Daniel and Peter. Would like to know if there are other siblings and any other information on these families. Also the children of ALEXANDER AND MAGGIE WYPER. My G.Grandmother Annie is one.
Any information on this family at all would be greatly appreciated. Also do you know if any of PETER AND DANIEL`S music is still available. I am sure this family lived in Cambusnethan.

Hamilton is a place near Bellshill, sorry if you misunderstood my message. Lots of Wypers in this area which comes within the Scottish Registration District of Lanark.I am trying to sort them all out at the moment.
