A Little About The Wynne Name

Origin: Welsh

Spelling Variations: Wynne, Wynn, Wyn, Winne, Winn, Win, Gwinn, Gwinne, Gwynne, Gwynn, and many more.

First found in Garvarnonshire, Wales, were they held a family seat from ancient times.

Other notable items: The ancient term of "ap" means "Son of", "ferch" means "Daughter of". Also, "Cynwrig" translates to "Kendrick". At the moment, I'm unsure as to why the surname of "Wynne" stuck but eventually the family adopted this spelling and kept it to modern times.

Many Welsh joined the great migrations to North America in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Like their Scottish and Irish neighbors, many Welsh families left their homeland hoping to find hope and prosperity in a land that the English did not exercise a tight rule over. The English were systematically murdering the Irish, Welsh and others considered 'inferior' by starving them out and other tactics. Those Welsh immigrants that successfully traveled to North America went on to make significant contributions to the rapid development of both Canada and the United States in terms of the settling of land and the establishment of industry. They also added to the rich cultural heritage of both countries.

An examination into the immigration and passenger lists has discovered a number of people bearing the name Wynne or various spellings:

  • Thomas Wynne and his wife Catherine settled in Plymouth in 1620, the same year as the "Mayflower"

  • Ed Winn settled in North Carolina in 1701

  • Thomas Winn settled in Maryland in 1682 with his wife and two daughters


  • Some noteworthy people of the name Wynne:
  • Arthur Wynne (1862-1945), British-born American editor, invented the crossword puzzle in 1913

  • Robert Wynne (1851-1922), American government administrator, Postmaster General (1904-1905)

  • Greville Maynard Wynne (b. 1919), British spy


  • This page about the WYNNE family displays mostly my husband's direct paternal lineage.

    "Was researching Graves family that settled on property my family now owns in Lower Merion Township, Pennsylvania. Came across book now on Google, page 1363. Re: 8th generation of Wynne family at site: Sarah Graves, born 1659, who married the first Jonathan Wynne, was the daughter not of Thomas but of John Graves, Thomas's son, and his wife Mary Smith, daughter of Lt. Samuel Smith of Wethersfield, Connecticut. Sarah may first have married Edward Stebbins in 1679, but in 1694 married Jonathan Wynne. How she got to PA is a mystery. She seems also to have brought a Greaves brother or cousin, as a male Greaves owned our property in 1851 and gave his name to a nearby Greaves Lane in Gladwyne. Sarah and Jonathan are buried a half mile from our house at Merion Meeting, founded 1695."

    JONATHAN WYNN III.

    JONATHAN WYNN, grandson of Jonathan Wynne of Blockley, bought in 1774 the farm known as Marsh Farm, located along the Conestoga pike, in East Nantmel township, Chester county, PA., consisting of 188 acres and 144 rods. He made the purchase of Thomas Penn, the son, and John Penn, the grandson, of William Penn, the founder of the Colony. The farmhouse was partly of stone and partly of wood; it sets on an elevation above the road, and in the side of a hill; a considerable portion of the farm was lowland and swampy, but Mr. Wynne cut a large ditch through this part, draining into Brandywine Creek, the waters of which flow past the battlefield of the famous Revolutionary battle of Brandywine. He also built a stone wall about the house, which still remains. He married Miss Letitia Hewitt. He had quite a large family, comprising the following children: Mary, Rachel, Ann, Jennie, Susan, Lettie, John and Jonathan. Of these, Lettie and Jonathan Died during their minority. Rachel Wynn married Hugh Huston, and they shortly after wards moved to the neighborhood of Circleville, Ohio. Their children were Eliza Ann, Susan, Mary Jane, Franklin and Martin Luther. We have no trace of these children, except for Eliza Ann, who married a Mr. Austen and moved to Belton, Texas, where her mother joined her after the death of her husband, Mr. Huston. Rachel died in 1866, and lies buried in the cemetery at Belton. All her children are dead at this date. Mrs. Austen had seven children: Henry, Franklin, Martin Luther, George N., Charles H., Hugh and William T., all of whom are living in Texas.
    Mrs. Estella Williams of Fort Worth, Texas, is a daughter of Mary Jane Huston Hull, who was the daughter of Rachel Wynne and Hugh Huston. Mary, another daughter of Mary Jane, was married and lived in Urbana, Ill. She is now dead, but left issue.

    Text: Of these children, we have been unable to gain further knowledge, except that Reber Huston now lives in Monticello, Ill., where he is engaged in real estate, loans and conveyances. Grace, one of the younger daughters of Jonathan Huston, is a prominent physician of Sunbury, Pa. James Huston lives, we understand at Danville, Ill. Edson Robert still lives at South Bloomfield, Pickaway county, Ohio. We are indebted to his wife, Anna M. Huston, for a great part of above statement concerning the descendants of Ann Wynne. Susan Wynn married a Mr. Bougher, and settled also near Circleville, Ohio. Mrs. Bougher went back to Marsh Farm on a visit to her old home in 1818, riding horseback the whole way, in company with some friends. We have no trace of her offspring, except one of them lived in Decatur, Ill., and another at Danville, Illinois.
    Jane Wynn married John Root and moved to Philadelphia. Their children were Lettie, Elizabeth and John. They all worked for a Mr. McCauley, who was a tanner. Mrs. McCauley was John Root's sister. The Wynnes of Chester county used to take hides down there to exchange for leather. They tannery was in the south part of Philadelphia. Lettie married a man, name unknown to us. Elizabeth married a Mr. Brogan; they did well and lived happily. John was unmarried in 1842. There may have been another son. Aunt Jennie came up to Chester county, Pa., to attend the funeral of her sister, Mary.
    Mary Wynn married her cousin, Jonathan Wynn, of whom presently.
