WINDSOR Family History

This name, with variant spellings Windsor, Winsor, Winser, Winzor, Winzer and Winzar, is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is locational from Winsor in Devonshire, near the mouth of the Yealm, or from Winsor in Hampshire, on Southampton water. The former was first recorded as "Winlesore" in the 1202 Fine Court Rolls of Devonshire, and the latter was recorded as "Windlesor" in the 1236 Assize Court Rolls of Hampshire. Both places derive their first element from the Olde English pre 7th Century "windels", a windlass (from "windan", to wind), plus "ora", a bank; hence, "landing-place with a windlass".
