Winspear History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Winspear family
The surname Winspear was first found in Lincolnshire
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 held lands.
