Heraldic Homecoming

In the first 22 years of my life, I never met anyone with the surname "Wills" that I wasn't related to. In fact, there seemed to be considerable resistance to the idea that "Wills" was in fact a surname, with people regularly converting it to "Willis" or "Will".  Having recently discovered there are TWO Andy Wills on the lecturing staff of Plymouth University, I looked a bit further into the university records. There are 40 current students and 11 current staff called Wills. Oh, and there's a Wills presenting local TV news, too, and two at my daughter's shcool. I have the strange feeling that I may have accidentally come home, heraldically speaking :-)
