Early Origins of the Winkles family
The surname Winkles was first found in Shropshire
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire. Windley is a small village in Derbyshire
just north of Derby.
