Winston Genealogy & History

Winston is a topographical name, as are many surnames that come from Norman culture. Derived from the Old English word wynstan, meaning stone, it is likely that early members of the family inhabited areas close to mountainous regions. The first member of the Winston family history to arrive in the United States was Nicholas Winston, arriving in Barbados in 1654. Winston genealogy includes pianist George Winston; Broadway actress Hattie Winston; jeweler and Hope diamond owner Harry Winston; junior chess champion Peter Winston, who vanished at age 20; and Robin Winston, the first African-American chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party.
