WINTLE Family HistoryThis unusual name is of Anglo-Saxon origin and is a locational surname from either "Windhill" in West Yorkshire or "Windle" in Lancashire. The placenames are first recorded as "Windhill" (1208) and "Windhull" (1201), respectively and both share the same meaning and derivation, which is "a windy hill, one exposed to fierce gusts of wind", derived from the Old English pre 7th Century "wind", wind, and "hyll", hill or mound. The surname may sometimes be topographical in origin, denoting residence on or by "a windy hill".
