Wingam Early Origins



The surname Wingam was first found in Kent at Wingham, a civil parish and village that dates back to 834 when it was originally listed as Uuigincggaham. By the Domesday Book in 1086, it had a more modern spelling of Wingheham and literally meant "homestead of the family or followers of a man called Wiga" having derived from the Old English personal name + inga + ham. Alternatively, the first element may have been derived from the Old English "wig" meaning "heathen temple." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
