The surname Wys is very rare. My father, son of Adelina Wys-Vila says that there are only about 100 people with the family due to the fact that the original family name was Watts. The family helped the King of England and were then dubbed Wys. So, there Watts and Wys are the same family in actuality. My grandmother was born in England but moved to Puerto Rico as a child with her family, she was born 1904 and dies 2000.
