In about 1600, members of the Vautrin family in Lorraine, with other Huguenots, were forced to flee to German Alsace. The name under German influence became Wotring. Peter Vautrin or Wotring (1640- 1713) was a miller at Hellering. He was an elder in the Reformed Church and was buried at Kirrberg. Between 1733 and 1749 three grandsons of Peter, with their families, immigrated to Pennsylvania. In America, the name gradually became Woodring. By 1820 practically all branches use Woodring, but by 1850, Wotring was used again by some branches.

Abraham Wotring (1700-1752) married Anna Margaret Mertz in 1723. They had sixteen children; seven died young. The family immigrated to America in 1733 and settled in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. Descendants lived in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia, Ohio, New York, Michigan, Kentucky and elsewhere.

Samuel Wotring (ca. 1714-1766) married Mary Elizabeth Becker in 1736. They had four children. They immigrated to America in 1749 and settled in Pennsylvania. Descendants lived in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Illinois, Texas, Ohio, California and elsewhere.

John Daniel Wortring (1711-1786) married (1) Eva Kuntz and (2) Anna Mary Rebmann. He had ten children. The family immigrated to America in 1739 and settled first in York County, Pennsylvania. They later moved to Frederick County, Maryland. Descendants lived in Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
