An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancestors of the Wincetume family migrated to England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The surname Wincetume is based on the Old English personal name Wynstan. That name is derived from the Old English elements wyn, meaning joy, and stan, meaning stone.

Wincetume Early Origins



The surname Wincetume was first found in Gloucestershire where they are conjecturally descended from Ansfrid de Cormeiles, a Norman knight from the Abbey of Cormeiles in Normandy.

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Wincetumes to arrive on North American shores: John Winston settled in Virginia in 1663; Nicholas Winston settled in Barbados in 1654; Stephen Winston settled in Boston in 1716; Thomas Winston settled in Maryland in 1725..
