Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X) Wincot(t) is where Shakespeare's mother was born. We cannot find Wincott in Warwickshire but Whichford is a small village and civil parish in the south of Warwickshire.
Bardsley presumes that the name was a baptismal name as in 'the son of Wingod,' and believes that the Wincott spelling is a corruption of the original name. He found Robert Wynegod listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of Oxfordshire in 1273 and William Wynegod in the same rolls in Someset. CITATION[CLOSE]
