Vineter History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Vineter family


The surname Vineter was first found in Somerset where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1170 when Saulfus Vinter held lands.

Vineter Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Vineter family name include Vinter, Vineter, Vynter, Vintner, Vyneter, Viniter, Vintiner and many more.

Migration of the Vineter family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Vineter surname or a spelling variation of the name include: early settlers like Jno Vintner who went to Virginia in 1662; or Tho Vintner who settled there a year later. Richard Vinter went even before then, to Barbados, in 1679. Henry Vintner was shipped to America in bondage, as a criminal, in 1682.
