Spelling variations of this family name include: Wyndham, Windham and others.

First found in Norfolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times, at Wymondham, and descended from a noble Saxon, Wimund, before and after the Norman Conquest in 1066. "The sole remaining branch in the male line of this ancient family, said to be of Saxon origin, and descended from 'Ailwardus' of Wymondham, of Wyndham, in Noirfolk, living soon after the Norman Conquest [was Wyndham of Dinton]." [1] Wymondham (Windham), Norfolk survives today as a historic market town and civil parish. "This town derives its name from the Saxon Win Munde Ham, signifying 'a pleasant village on a mount;' and is indebted for its importance to the foundation of a priory of Black monks, at first a cell to the abbey of St. Alban's, by William d'Albini or Daubeny, in 1130. " [2]

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Au bon droit
Motto Translation: With good right.
