About these records

This is an card index to Devonshire people, places and topics held at the Devon Local Studies Library in Exeter.  Most of the million cards were written by one man - Burnet Morris.  You can read more about the project on the Devon Local Studies page about the Burnet Morris Index. There are some 200 or so cards listed under the category Windeatt in the index and I managed to copy out most of them on my recent trip to Devon.  

It was refreshing to see that Burnet Morris had correctly recognised all the Windeatt variants and the section is headed:

WINDEATT including WINGAT(E) Wingett Wingyett Wynegate Windigat Windit Onyot Wyndiett Wyndeyate Wyndyett Wyndyate Wyndyeate Wyndeyate

and so I didn't have to do complicated multiple searches.  But it was a bit disturbing to find that he had listed ONYOT as a variant as well.  This was one I had not thought of before.  The only strays that he may have missed are WINDOUT and WIND?  which could also be variants of the separate surname: Wincott or Winicott but which I have included in a second list below because they could also be variants or misspellings of WINDEATT. 

The records are, however, only an index and almost every entry requires further investigation in the original source or cross referenced record.  Unfortunately, I didn't have time to do this second searching except in a few cases.
