The Winning surname is generally thought to be a habitational name taken on from a place name, such as from Winnington, an area of the town of Northwich in Cheshire, or Winningham, a now lost place in from East Yorkshire.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Winnington, Winington, Winninton, Wininton and others.

First found in Cheshire where the family is "an ancient family of 'that seed-plot of gentry,' Cheshire. The paternal name was De Croxton, but in the reign of Edward I., Robert son of Lidulfus de Croxton, marrying the heiress of Winnington of Winnington, took the surname of his wife's family. [1] [2] "Winnington Hall, anciently the seat of the Winningtons" [3] is located in the township of Winnington. Winnington is also a township, in the parish of Muckleston in Staffordshire but we must look to Cheshire for the family's origin.
