    Name Meaning

    English:habitational name from Windsor (Berkshire), Windsor in Stratford upon Avon (Warwickshire), Winsor in Copythorne (Hampshire), Winsor in Yealmpton (Devon), or Broadwindsor and Little Windsor (Dorset). All these places have the same linguistic origin, whose meaning is controversial, but seems to be ‘windlass bank’ (Old English windels + ōra).in Yorkshire perhaps a habitational name from Winds Over in Middleton (near Ilkley, Yorkshire). The placename probably derives from Old English wind ‘wind’ (genitive windes) + ofer ‘slope, hill, ridge’.
