About the Project
The Winton Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Winton name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Winton name.
As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Winton's), by time period (18th Century Winton's), or by topic (Winton DNA, Winton Occupations, Winton Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.
Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

Related Surnames and Surname Variants
This is a One Name Study, started in July 2019, to collect together in one place everything about the Winton surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.
July 2019: To start with I'm going to enter all the descendants and their families from Leonard Winton who is my key ancestor. He had seven sons, each of them married and had a family. From Leonard, there are over 1,000 descendants, so the initial task is quite a mammoth undertaking. As I add each spouse, I am going to see if he/she links to any existing WikiTree profiles, and add any necessary family members to join them up.
Ongoing tasks, to check Winton profiles (worldwide, not just Sussex), and correct suggestions, add sources and try and connect them to the global tree.
