Kevin Wheelock has published an addendum to his interesting and very plausible argument that Hugh de Whelock, the earliest documented bearer of the "Wheelock" surname, was a Norman from France. Hugh de Whelock lived during the reign of Henry II, steward of the village of Whelock, in Cheshire County, England. According to Kevin Wheelock's thesis, Huge de Whelock's ancestry resides in Norman France, possibly extending back into Norway. The central thesis is documented here, with a 2014 addendum here.
