About Wildman / Wileman of South Australia
Acknowledgment: To Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, our thanks for sharing your research on ancient families, Kings of England, Scotland and Europe and the current Royal Family of England, without your research this would never had happened.

NOTE: Wildman and Wileman families
Nearly all of the Wildman and Wileman families in South Australia are now represented here, either by direct relationship or marriage, this cover extends to all other states of Australia and includes England where the Wildman / Wileman families originated from and are still represented. It was in England that the "Wileman's" originated, this name being a corruption of Wildman. This occurred in the late 1700's when both Samuel and John Wildman from separate families had children christened in the church under the name of Wileman, this could have only come about as a scribes spelling error, as most were illiterate. Descendants of the Wileman families also immigrated and can also be found in Australia today

For those people perusing this website for information on family tree connections or those starting out compiling family trees of their own, please recognise several  factors.
 The early South Australian settlers came to South Australia to escape bureaucratic intrusion into their lives and they were distrustful of any officials that wanted to know all about them. 
 They were good at stretching the truth and giving officialdom the answers that they  thought the bureaucrats required, be it name, age, or date of birth to suit the  occasion. This is where discrepancies in records become apparent, especially for under  age brides, who were all 21 or full age. See notes against each individual. The churches were the holders of all records prior to Sept 1837 in England and 1842 in South Australia when official registration of all BMD’s started, but the churches continued to record all BMD occasions as well.
 The churches of the day did not like the intrusion into their patch, and responded by not recording parents names on marriage records. They also did not state the ages of the marriage couple and inserting FL for a person of age of consent or MI for a minor, until the government forced the churches into compliance. 
 A great proportion of the early ancestors were illiterate, and relied on scribes in churches and government offices to record their details of the information recorded, this resulted in phonetic spelling of names. 
 A good example is BEZOR, found as Beaser, Bizer, Bezer, Beazor or any other corruption that can be thought of, and this is not an isolated case.
 It was not until wide spread education happened that families then took full control of their names and how they were spelt.
