LEWIN Family HistoryThis interesting name is of Anglo-Saxon origin and derives from the Old English pre 7th Century personal name "Leofwine", which is composed of the elements "leof", dear, beloved and "wine", friend. The personal name is recorded before the Norman Conquest of 1066 as "Leofwin", "Lifwin" and "Leuuin", where the double "u" stands for "w". In Middle English the name became "Lefwine". This was the name borne by an English missionary who became the patron of Ghent, and the given name was consequently popular in England and the Low Counties during the Middle Ages. The surname development includes William Lowen (1275, Worcestershire), Roger Livene (1279, Cambridgeshire) and Robert Levene (1327, Essex)...
