FAMILY RECORD OF
JOHN WINNIATT AND
There are no earlier Winnetts in Stow on the Wold, but there are
records for a Winniatt family in Snowshill, a parish about six miles
away. There is no christening record for Thomas, but a gap about the
time of his birth. This may be Thomas' family.
Winniatt is an unusual name. A Winniatt research explains: "This
family appears in records from the earliest times in and around
the villages of Dymock and Kempley. The Military Survey of
Gloucestershire of 1522 mentions several examples, mostly spelt
Wynnyet. The earliest mention in the parish registers is of a
Thomas Wynnyett in 1538. The name is spelt in various forms:
Wynniatt, Wynyat, Wynett, Wynyeyt, Wynniett, Wynneat, Winniet and
Winett. However, by the 1700s the name is almost always spelt
Winniatt. The name also appears in Woolhope, Herefordshire a few
miles away. Wenman Wynniatt was Lord of the Manor
of Dymock around 1650 and was granted land in Stanton by John
Izod. This began the connection of the Wynniatt family with the
Cotswold parishes of Stanton, Stanway and Snowshill. Two Reginald
Wynniatts (father and son) were vicars and significant property
owners in the area between 1771 and 1838. The earliest mention of
the name in the Snowshill registers is the marriage of John
Winniat and Susanna Payne in 1691."
John Winniatt was born in about 1670 of Snowshill, Gloucestershire.
He married Susanna Payne 28 December 1691 in Snowshill. Susanna was
christened 29 June 1664 in Snowshill, the daughter of Thomas and
