WINFREY ROOTS
"You cannot know where you are going, unless you know where you are, and you cannot know where you are, unless you know from whence you came."
(Old navigational epithet)

"On the assumption that our early Winfrey-named persons date back to England, to, say, 1500, many persons expected that there would be found an historical coat of arms for the name Winfrey or a varied spelling.  Search in England and Ireland  does not show any such coat of arms ever to have been registered.  Here in the United States, several outlets make up and sell coats of arms for Winfrey.  The practice is to make up the coat of arms according to acceptable colors, shapes, and objects to fit what they think the name means.  I have seen three Winfrey coats of arms----all different.  These coats of arms are original designs coming out of their “back room workshop” here in the States and are the product of whatever the makers schemed together.  In general, these outlets are honest, but seem to avoid admitting that they do not have, or know of, any historical coat of arms for the name “Winfrey.”  The Turpin name, however, does have a registered coat of arms."
