Wudebink is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Wudebink family once lived in Lincolnshire. Their name however, translates as the dweller by the woodland stream, and indicates that the original bearer lived near such a waterway.

Wudebink Early Origins



The surname Wudebink was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor some say before the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Wudebink Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Wudebink family name include Woodbine, Woodfine, Woodpine, Wouldbine, Wouldfin and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Wudebink surname or a spelling variation of the name include: William Woodfine, with his wife Elizabeth and son William, who settled in Barbados in 1679. In Newfoundland, Richard settled in St. John's in 1783; Richard settled in Devil's Cove in 1821.
