WATKINS Family HistoryRecorded in several spellings including Gwatkin, Watkin, Gwatkins, Watkins, Watkis, Watkiss, Wattin, Wattins and others, this ancient surname was originally English. Over the centuries it has undergone many changes, and today as Gwatkins and Watkins is more associated with Wales, and as Watkinson with Scotland. As Gwatkin, Watkin and Wattin, it is a diminutive but otherwise a patronymic. However spelt it derives from the pre 7th century Anglo-Saxon and Germanic personal name Walter from Waldhar, meaning "people-rule".
