Origin(s) of The Filler Family Name

Does anyone have any reliable, real information sources in regards to the origin(s) of the Filler family name? Some of the information I have gathered stated that the oldest know source is "A family of Norman origin before the year 1100 and appears first in the ancient records in Leicestershire, England." and some other source states "Spelling variations include: Villers, Villiers, Villieres, Vilers, Viliers and many more. First found in Leicestershire where the family were traditionally Sheriffs of Leicester, in addition to being Lords of Rokesby." Any sources of information that would clarify the true origin(s) would be greatly appreciated.
