Welcome to my Windlow Family Tree website.
My research begins with my Grandfather, Eli Windlow
I had not been able to get beyond the 1800's, due to somewhere along the line, the name has changed from WINDLOW to WINLOW and finally WINLEY/WINLAY.
In order to find out more, I decided to begin a One Name Study into the Windlow/Winlow/Winley surname – this can be found at www.windlow.org.uk
It is a work in progress … and I thank researchers in Australia and the IOW for their contributions.
2017 update - it gives me great pleasure to have finally broken down the brick wall so that my Windlow Family Tree goes back to the 1600's to Holy Island, Northumberland.
I am also able to connect my cousins in Australia and hopefully, I can also follow the Windlows to America ... I can then add every generation to my One Name Study website.
