Winer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Winer family

The surname Winer was first found in Berkshire where we find Sarra de Winiard in the Curia Regis Rolls of 1212. Later Juliana de la Wingarde was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of 1275 and William atte Wyneard was listed in the Subsidy Rolls for Somerset in 1327. [1]

The name literally means "worker in the vineyard." [1] [2] [3] However, one should note the word "winnard" can also be derived from the Cornish "qwilkyn" meaning "redwing" as in the bird.

Another source notes confirms William atte Wyneard in Somerset, 1 Edward III (in the first year of the reign of Edward III.) [4]
