Early Origins of the Wendlin family
The surname Wendlin was first found in Norfolk
at Wendling, a parish, in the union of Mitford and Launditch, hundred
of Launditch, in the W. division of Norfolk
. Some time before 1267 an abbey was founded by William de Wendling, in honor of the Blessed Virgin, for Praemonstratensian canons. The name is thought to have meant "settlement of the family or followers of a man called Waendel" which was derived from the Old English personal name
