In 1237 the Coat of Arms of the Wavrins was already in existence and is now recognized by the Dutch, Belgian and French governments. In 1859 the title "Le Villiers" was added to the name Wavrin, Duke of Belgium. This was possibly due to marriage or a great service done to the country.

The crest consists of the unicorn with the motto "Moins que lepas" blazoned in blue and white. A letter received in 1971 from the Mayor of the Ville de Wavrin indicated that the name Waverijn underwent many changes:

1107 - Wavring
1147 - 1152 Wafrin
1193 - Waverin
1209 - Wavering

These names are also known in Belgium. Because the Waverijns did not belong to the Catholic Church, there are no records in the church archives. There was a fort, but it was destroyed during World War I. City Hall in Ville de Wavrin was destroyed in World War II and all important papers were lost. Kasteel
There are no more living people by the name of Wavrin in Ville de Wavrin.
The following information was taken out of a book "Collection of the Chronicles and Ancient histories of Great Britain, now Called England" by John de Wavrin, Lord of Forestel.
John (bastard) of Wavrin, was an illegitimate child of a noble family of Artois, France. His father, the head of the House of Wavrin, Robert, Lord of Wavrin and of Liliers was killed in the Battle of
Azincourt. John the Wavrin was also in that battle on the side of the French. He stayed in the army until the Treaty of Arras in 1435. His nephew, Waleran, Lord of Wavrin, Liliers, Malonnoy and Saint Venant, undertook the writing collection (1445-1455) and compiled the memorials for his chronicles of Britain. Continuing until the death of King Henry IV, they wrote a fifth volume.
John de Wavrin was born in 1394 and died in 1474 at the age of eighty.
Count and Countess Wavrin fled in 1685 from France to Holland. They were Hugenots and were forbidden to practice their religion.
