Winton History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Winton family

The surname Winton was first found in Radnorshire (Welsh: Sir Faesyfed), a former historic county of mid- Wales, anciently part of the kingdom of Powys, where a Norman knight, de Winton, was granted vast estates on the English Welsh border including Maesllwch Castle.

Andrew of Wyntoun (1350?-1420?), was a Scottish historian, "Canon regular of St. Andrews, and was elected, as he modestly says, by favour of his brethren and not for his own merits, prior of St. Serf's Inch in Loch Leven, a dependent house of the priory of St. Andrews. " [1]
