    Origin of the name "Guinn"
    The name Guinn goes back to Wales to the Gwydir Castle. The names of
    Gwin, Gwinn, Gwyn, Gwynn, Gwynne, Guin, Guinn, Wynn, Wynne are all
    derivitates of the original name of Gwynedd. The earliest known "Gwin"
    who came to America was Capt. Owin Gwynn, Esq. son of Sir John Wynn of
    the Wynn family of the Gwydir Castle, Wales in 1611. His son Col. Hugh
    Gwynne was the first to permanently settle in the US. (Owin returned
    to Gwydir Castle when his father died to succeed to the baronetcy.)
