People Named Wingham
De Wingham

 
 
 

The De Wingham's 

 

Arthur Hussey makes note that many people adopting the name Wingham may have been from the outlying dwellings. There is no evidence that the persons named in the list below were all born in the area, though some are clearly related and the de Wingham's held Shepherdswell for many years. 

Hussey does not point out the differences of spelling e.g Wingeham or Wyngham and the list only includes the modern spelling regardless of the original spelling ofthe individuals' name.

The list above is not comprehensive. Out of copyright books are being continually added to those available on line and you may find more. 

Please remember that spelling and pronunciation vary at the times at which the original text was written. Crawford, A (2001)  appears to have Hugh rather than Henry as Bishop of London.
