Winterton History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Winterton surname is thought to be derived from several place names in South Humberside and in Norfolk. These places names come from the Old English "winter," and "tun," which meant enclosure or settlement; perhaps referring to a place only inhabited in the winter.


Early Origins of the Winterton family


The surname Winterton was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat. It has also been suggested a family of this name came to Britain following the Battle of Hastings in 1066, when William, Duke of Normandy, having prevailed over King Harold, granted most of Britain to his many victorious Barons. There was a Tochus (Touchet) of Winterton listed in the Domesday Book, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
