If anyone has information on the winter clan I would humbly ask if you could share with me. My grandfather I only met twice before he died never told me anything about the winter family in Boston Massachusetts except that we were part of the winterhill gang at one time.
My friend, who surprisingly is named Evergreen Winter, has Ashkenazi Jewish heritage, but on his mother's side, Rickman. His father's side traced to the Scottish Orkney and Shetland Islands, and they are descended from Viking-Norse settlers from Denmark, using the Danish/Norwegian surname Vinter.

Gwillam is my late mothers maiden name.We are related to Robert and thomas winter of the gun powder plot and lady hamilton ,mistress of lord nelson .The winter's of Preston lancashire are my roots
John, my roots are also from Lancashire, I wonder if we are related on some level?
Myself and my family (Winter) go back many generations from Yorkshire, an historical county with strong Danish/Viking heritage - in fact York (Jorvik) was the centre of the Danish/Viking Kingdom in Britain.
I have only been able to go so far back to the name Winter in England, my middle Winter has been passed down from the genteration. My grandmother could only remember so much...she said it has to do with the Winter Estate?
Mine are in New Zealand - we are searching for how we connect to the English / German Winters
Hello Jon... my name is Edward Winter. I'm Irish, born and bred and live in Co. Cork. My late dad's uncle, Nathaniel Alfred Winter emigrated to NZ around 1890-1900. I think he lived in Auckland and he married Eleanor Cowper. They had a son and daughter, Maurice and Eileen. Have any of these shown up in your research? I've not been able to get much information on them and would be grateful if you could shed any light. If you find that you have any Irish connection, I would be glad to be of assistance in tracing. Perhaps we have a connection ourselves..... would'nt that make our research so much easier! Either way, I wish you luck in your quest. Regards, Edward.
