Many family trees claim Matthew Wing was the son of Rev. Godfredus Wingius. Rev. Wingius was a noted Dutch Protestant minister. After Catholic Spain took control over the region, Rev. Wingius fled to Sandwich, Kent, England.

Due to the fact Rev. John Wing later lived at Sandwich, folks thought he "must" be Godfredus' grandson.

However, the personal papers of Rev. Godfredus have been carefully examined, and while he was married twice, he never had any children.
