The Wingfield Family Society’s 2020 gathering will be held in Richmond, Virginia from 8 to 11 October, 2020.

We are finalizing the itinerary details for this year’s gathering. This year’s registration fees, including hotel reservation information and itinerary details will be announced soon.

We are very excited for what is tentatively planned for this year’s gathering and hope you and your family will be able to join us. Nonmembers are also welcomed.

Two highlights of this year’s gathering are currently being planned. One of the days will involve a visit by motor coach to New Kent County and Hanover, Virginia where an early branch of the Wingfield family settled in the late 1600s and early 1700s respectively.

This year marks the 300th anniversary of the founding of Hanover County, Virginia (formed by action of the Virginia General Assembly on November 26, 1720). We are also planning a separate day visit by motor coach to Historic Jamestowne and if time permits a visit to Colonial Williamsburg. For those members and/or guests that wish not to participate in one of the organized activities of this year’s gathering there will be plenty of other activities to choose from while in Richmond. Further details will be provided soon.
