William Carlisle Winder
I Agree with Joseph Winder, although i think it was spelled Vinandr. This is why Winder in the lake district is pronounce with a short "i" and in Yorkshire and thereabouts it us usually pronounced with a long "i", probably because the descend from people who were in the wool winding business. I am second generation American and i have not been able to go back in ancestry past my my Great grandfather Joseph. i have been to the district and love it. We stayed in Lorton.

How do you know this? I believe you to be accurate. I am a Winder in Alaska, USA. I know my family comes from northwest England. In the regions around Windermere. There are still many there.
JOSEPH ANDREW WINDER
NO The name WINDER derives from a Norwegian family called Vinnandr they came from norway with Ingermund first to Dublin then to Cumbria in ad986.They didn`t read or write hence when the normans finally arrived the different spelling.Historical researh will show lake windermere was originally vinnandermere and the family name is prevelant all over cumberland and westmorland.Because the family were predominately sheep farmers and kept to the mountains there are still many ,like myself,still living here over a thousand years later.
