My Wallens are from Maestag, South Wales originally. In the early 1800's, George Walwyn married Joan Wallen. Their son's name became George Walwyn of Wallen. Later, George became George Wallen. My father (Eric Wallen) married Anne V. Stran. On the Stran side you will find names such as: Custis, Washington, Sherwood, Dandridge, Lee, and many more. I have started putting much of my families history on my website at "wallenscott.com", check it out.
