Winstone History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Winstone is a name that was brought to England by the ancestors of the Winstone family when they emigrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Winstone comes from the Old English personal name Wynstan. That name is derived from the Old English elements wyn, meaning joy, and stan, meaning stone.

Early Origins of the Winstone family


The surname Winstone was first found in Gloucestershire where they are conjecturally descended from Ansfrid de Cormeiles, a Norman knight from the Abbey of Cormeiles in Normandy.

Winstone Spelling Variations


A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Winston, Winstone and others.
