Name Meaning

English: habitational name from either of two places, in Lincolnshire and Norfolk, named Winterton. The first is named in Old English as ‘farmstead (Old English tūn) of the family or followers (-inga-) of a man called Winter’, while Winterton-on-Sea in Norfolk is from Old English winter ‘winter’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’, referring perhaps to a place inhabited only in winter.
