WINSTON Family History

This interesting name has two possible origins, the first of which is from an Anglo-Saxon male personal name, the Old English pre 7th Century 'Wynstan', composed of the elements 'wynn, winn', joy, and 'stan', stone. The personal name is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Wnstan', and the surname from this source is first recorded in the Wiltshire Calendar of 'Inquisitions' for 1303 as Amice Wynston. The second possible origin for the modern surname, found as Winston and Winstone, is locational, from any of the places called 'Winston' in Durham, Suffolk and the Isle of Wight, or 'Winstone' in Gloucestershire...
