am seeking information about Thomas Windebank, born 1774. Think he MIGHT be the son, grandson, etc of the Thomas Windebanks of Bighton who was registered as just ". . . son of Thomas The first definite information I have is when he later married Mary Scorey at Bishopstoke,From then on, I can easily trace him. They moved to Titchfield .

My father was Peter Windibank 1918 - 1986. His father was Frank Windibank (died 1918) and his mother Dorothea Heather (nickname Dodger)I believe his father's family were butchers in Chichester, Sussex. I am trying to develop the family tree. Any help would be much appreciated

RE: Windibank

the following info is for all who are interested in the windebanks of wield.

i was passed this info by susan knight and has been checked via the wield parish records.

the following is in susans own words:


Note: There are two Elizabeth Windebanks in Wield of about the same age during the same time period. One is the daughter of Nicholas and the other the daughter of Thomas, both sons of Nicholas and his wife Elizabeth. The Wield Manor Court Books for 1740-1859 provide a key in identifying which is which. When the court was convened on October 27,1800 (page 169), the following item was listed:

At this court before the Steward and in the presence of the Homage Samuel Giles and Elizabeth his wife which said Elizabeth is eldest daughter and heir of Nicholas Windebank deceased surrendered into the hands of the Lord of the said Manor (she the said Elizabeth being first solely and secretly examined) one Messuage and one little parcel of land to the same belonging and adjoining on the west part thereof in West Wield to the use and behalfof William Giles and his Heir according to the custom of the said Manor"(Hampshire Record Office item 112M97/2 pages 175-176.

Per the above that as Elizabeth Giles (nee Windebank) is the daughter of Nicholas then this Elizabeth Windebank, who married Richard Knight, must be the daughter of Thomas.

RE: Windibank


my uncle is researching our familly tree, He has discovered a Mary Kate Windibank (who I believe is my great. great grandmother) spooky as I was named Katherine Mary Windibank long before my parents were aware of this.

I can pass your details on to him if you can provide me a contact email.

That was posted two years ago, I guess they're unlikely to find you again now

Here's hoping though, you found this site by searching for the name so I hope someone else does too.

Good luck to your uncle, hope he finds a family fortune!

RE: Windibank family tree

My grandmother, Mabel (nee) Windibank, was daughter of Henry Robert Windibank, born about 1854 in the St Pancras area of London, father managing a furnishing firm called Maples. My father was always told that the Windibanks were the Vanderbanks who came over with William of Orange and settled in Liphook as armourers to the Bentinck family. Armourers no doubt became black smiths. Can anyone shed light on how HR Windibank fits in with those Windibanks on this website?

William of Orange family tree

Recommended / related
Not sure if / how any of those Windebank's mentioned fit in here, but just as an aside here's William of Orange's family tree.

Our connection with that name is where Caroline Clarke married John Windebank, in the 1800s... we also have Harriet Ann Cole marrying Stephen Windebank, though we have gaps in this area though.

My father Peter Frank Windibank 1918-1986 had a family tree, since lost and I remember from my childhood that the family came from Liphook in Hampshire. His father was Frank Windibank who died in 1918. The family lived in Chichester at that time and I believe they were butchers.
I would be delighted to hear from you. My email:

I live in Sturry, a few miles from Canterbury, Kent.

Kindest regards,

RE: Windibank family tree

There may be a connection somewhere as all our Windebanks were from the Widley/Cosham area. Caroline CLARKE married into the Windebank family (in 1832) which was quite a large one.

RE: Arthur Westbrook

In researching my great-grandmother, Alice Westbrook (b 1869 of James Westbrook & Charlotte nee Knight, I discovered a few things about her brother Arthur, who moved to Croydon. Alice also moved to Croydon and lived round the corner from Arthur. She called her second son after him. His son died at Beersheeba in August 1917, serving with The Queen's. Happy to help if it's of any interest.
