Vinning History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Vinning come from when the family resided in the settlement of Fyning in Rogate, in the county of Sussex. The surname Vinning belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.


Early Origins of the Vinning family


The surname Vinning was first found in Winchester where Robert Fininge is generally understood to be the oldest listing of the family as recorded there (1210-1211.)

A few years later, Thomas Finning was listed in Suffolk in 1228 and later, the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex listed Alan Fynyng in 1332. Ralph de Vynynge was listed to the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in 1327 and Robert Vinning was listed in Somerset in 1641. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Vinning has been recorded under many different variations, including Vining, Vineham, Viney, Vinny, Finning, Finnings and others.

Migration of the Vinning family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Vinning or a variant listed above:
