Visitors since 22nd March 2009:

It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

: Winston of Llangarren, Winston of Painswick, Winston of Standish, Winston of Winston
1 There are conflicts between the various Visitation records on this family. We considered holding back from releasing this page properly into the Database and identifying this page only as Draft. However, we have managed to develop a reasonably cohesive report - although we have varied between which of the Visitations we think should be followed sometimes with little more than intuition to lead us so that the following should not be viewed as fully reliable and is certainly subject to review should further information on this family come to our attention. Note that VGWI, VGWY, VHWI & VHCE refer to the different Visitation records used to develop this page. These are identified at the bottom of this page. We presume to treat John as the same as Jevan and Walter as the same as Watkin or Watkyn.
2 VHCE shows the progenitor of this family as Sir Tiens de Valence son of Sir Teyns de Valence in France father of Gilbert father of Yeban Wynston sic, see below. VGWI starts with ...
Gwyn ap Gwayth
m Emma dau of Drugo de Balladon
1. Drugo de Wynston, lord of Trewyn
m Isabel Wallis dau of Sir William Wallis
A. Ivo de Wynston, lord of Trewyn
m Joane Caerlion dau/coheir of Howell Caerlion
i. Gilbert Winston of Winston
m Isabel Vallence dau/coheir of William Vallence
a. John or Jevan Winston of Winston & Langaren
Jevan, apparently the same person as the Yeban Wynston mentioned in note 2 above, was the first mentioned by VGWY. Each of VGWI, VGWY & VHCE show Gilbert as a son of this Jevan. VGWI also reports the following shown in blue italic:
m Joane Cecill dau/heir of Reiginald Cecill of Penclough
1 Hugh or Watkin Winston of Winston
VGWI names him Hugh within the pedigree but the Harleian editor added a note reporting that, "According to official record in the Heralds' College" he was named Watkin. Not least because of this, we follow VGWY & VHCE on this generation.
m Catherine Stradling dau of Sir Edward Stradling
A Hugh Winston of Winston
m Joane dau of Howell ap Evan Sais
i Sir Walter Winston
m Margaret Walby dau of Sir William Walby
a+ Thomas, John/Jenkin,. Philip & Walter - see below
Both VGWY & VHCE show the next 2 generations as follows, the spouses coming from the former:
1 John Winston of Winston
m Jane Cecil dau of Reingold Cicill or Cecil of Alternes
A Watkins Winston of Huyas or Ewyas, Herefordshire
m Joane dau of Howell ap Eignion
VGWY shows Watkyn's eldest son as Thomas "a quo Wynston de Huyas" with younger sons John of Wynston Winston, married to Margaret Walby, and Watkyn also married to a Margaret Walby, parents of Joane who married William Gernon of Blakmore - note that we show that Joan as of a later generation VGWI shows just one son, Sir Walter. VHCE shows just one son, John. We presume to show VHCE's John as younger brother of VGWI's Sir Walter.
i Sir Walter Winston
The following comes from VGWI except for input from VGWY & VHWI as reported.
m Margaret Walby dau of Sir William Walby
a Thomas Winston of Winston
This may be the Thomas mentioned above as being shown by VGWY as ancestor of the Winstons of Huyas Wwyas. The following comes wholly from VGWI.
1 Robert Winston of Winston
A Watkin Winston of Winston
m _ Baskerville
i Thomas Winston of Winston
m Margaret Smyth dau of William Smyth
b John Jenkin Winston of Sothanit or Sortharant, Herefordshire
John, "2 brother to Winston of trewin" sic, was the first mentioned by VHWI which shows Philip as 2nd son of this John rather than his younger brother.
m Catherine Baynham dau/heir of John Baynham of Southant
1 John Winston of Southavant or Southanant or Sandes
VGWY identifies John's wife as Catherin Mandefeild. VGWI names her ...
