Early Origins of the Vyneter family


The surname Vyneter 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.

Migration of the Vyneter family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Vyneter, or a variant listed above: 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.
