The Wells family of Calloway County, Kentucky descends from a John Wills who to Virginia from Wells, Somerset, England in 1635. It appears that John Wills settled in Warwick County, Virginia where he was the father of Emanuel Wills who married Elizabeth Cary. They were the parents of John who moved to North Carolina in 1725. It was also this John who changed the name from Wills to Wells. John's great- grandson, Thomas Wells (1782-1860) married Mary Rainey in Caswell County, North Carolina in 1809 and they then moved to Tennessee where they were the parents of six children. One of these children, Williamson Rainey, moved to Calloway County, Kentucky where descendants live to this day.
