Where does the surname Wherly come from . Silvester and Felix came from Germany about 1812 but Wherly doesn't seem German somehow?

Fascinating! What about my other grandparents/Father. Surname Philp, from Newcastle upon Tyne. Some, maybe related in Hayle, Cornwall, Truro and probably Aberdeen, Scotland!
