Vintiner Early Origins



The surname Vintiner 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.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Vintiner family emigrate to North America: 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.
