Hello Tinozza,
Many thanks for your communication. I became involved in ancestral matters several years ago, generally via Internet reseach as I live in Australia. Last UK visit was in 1997, when I was still unaware of these matters. Some years after returning to Australia, South Australian relatives I (then) never knew I had, did much of the research-later I added more.

If you Google 'Documents relating to Trewyn (Cwmyoy)' -then click on the appropriate Web Site, it will bring up much information on Trewyn.

A useful Site is http://www.penrose.org -then click 'Surnames', then 'W', then 'Wynston'-that provides earlier information on the Wynstons.

Hope the foregoing is useful. More can be added later as I go through my paperwork.

Hi hourihane & AussieEd,

I have just stumbled upon & joined this site, having seen your comments about Trewyn in Cwmyoy.   I am the oldest living male Winstone in New Zealand and no doubt related to you both.  My great great grandfather was Charles Hand Winstone, whose 2 sons emigrated to NZ & started what became a large family business in building supplies.

In 1959 I lived for 2 months at Trewyn, on a trip with my maternal aunt's family, whose cousin owned Trewyn at the time.   I have fond memories of its uneven stone floors, the spooky remains of the previous house, her dogs' graveyard & its beautiful gardens.  They & I never realised then that my Winstone forebears had built what I was living in!  Is that fate?

On FTM I have the complete family tree of virtually all NZ Winstone family (& back to Sir Gilbert de Wynston 1328).  My cousin has professionally researched & printed 5 large volumes of relations strecthing back appr 1000 years before then!   Another Australian "cousin" has shown me much information he has compiled.  I would be keen to collaborate, especially about Trewyn.
