GOODWYN Family History

This is an ancient English name of Anglo-Saxon origin, which has the fairly uncommon distinction of surviving the Norman Conquest and the later influx of Norman names, almost in fact, up to the present day. The surname Godwin and its variant forms such as Godwyn, Goodwin, Goodwyn, and the patronymic form Goodwins, "son of Go(o)dwin", derive from the popular Olde English pre 7th Century personal name "Godwine", composed of the elements "god", meaning either "god" or "good", with "wine", friend, protector, lord.
