An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Wynderbourn surname is generally thought to have been taken on from the various places so named in Britain. The place names derive from the Old English "winter" and "burn," meaning "stream;" thus denoting a stream that dries up in summer. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Wynderbourn Early Origins



The surname Wynderbourn was first found in Gloucestershire where the Parish of Winterbourne predates its entry in Domesday Book, [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
and where there was a manor house of this name from very ancient times, before and after the Norman Conquest. One of the first on record was Henry de Winterburna who was listed in the Pipe Rolls of 1175 in both Dorset and Somerset. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)

There are at least nine parishes named Winterbourne or having the same prefix throughout Britain. [4]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
All nine were listed in the Domesday Book. Some denote the family that held estates there as in Winterbourne Bassett in Wiltshire, Winterbourne Houghton, Winterbourne Strickland and Winterbourne Zelston, all in Dorset.

Walter of Winterburn (died 1305) was an English Dominican, cardinal, orator, poet, philosopher, and theologian. King Edward I chose him as his confessor and spiritual director and was created cardinal on February 21, 1304, by Pope Benedict XI.
