Viles descendants of Josiah Viles

Researching the Viles name ,and have en-counted some unusual spelling and the exact location of origin .
This appears to be on the Continent Spain , France Polish , maybe even Italy.
Having located a town called 'Vellesse' pronounced Viles with emphases
on the 's' and other on the 'e'

Having read that people did take their surnames from the towns in which they lived .

Any interest in this would be welcome

The family Josiah VILES b. abt 1840 South Petherton, Somerset, England d. 1931
Featherston, New Zealand
