    Name Meaning

    English: unexplained. The suggestion by Reaney and Wilson that the surname is locative from Windros Laithe in Flasby (WR Yorks) is unlikely, as this late place-name appears to take its name from the surname. This Yorkshire surname may be connected in some way with the surname Windridge , probably from Windrush (Gloucs), though Redmonds states in Redmonds, Dictionary of Yorks Surnames that he can find no link between the surname Windross and Windrush (Gloucs).
