The Wimberly surname is most likely of Anglo-Saxon origin, and in its earliest forms appeared as Wynderlick and similar variants.

Wimberly Early Origins



The surname Wimberly was first found in Winmarleigh, Lancashire where they held a family seat from very early times. The Domesday Book lists a Wimbald and his four sons, as well as several listings of the name of Wimbaldlai. Bearers of this family name came to own land in Cheshire and Lancaster. During the reign of Henry III (1216-1272,) Gregory de Wimberley held lands in Lancashire, known as Winmarleigh. In 1344, a Thomas de Wimbersley, styled "le Gentil," became a part owner of the Winmarleigh manor.
