The English surname Vincent is of Norman French origin being derived from the Old French form of the Latin name Vincens meaning “conquering” from vincere “to conquer.“ This name was borne by various early saints particularly associated with France, most notably the 5th-century St Vincent of Lérins. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William Vincent, which was dated 1230, in the "Cartulary of Oseney Abbey", Oxfordshire. The name arrived in the New Wworld in the 17th Century when in 1626, one William Vincent, was granted 100 acres of land near Charles city, Virginia. Today in the United States there are approximately 50,000 bearers of the name Vincent.
