According to John Horace Round in his Studies in Peerage and Family History, Wynebald and his brother Hamelin were two brother who took their name from Ballon near La Mans in Maine, and were benefactos in England to the abbey of St Vincent at Le Mans. Round also believed that Wynebald was given his lands in England and Wales by Turstin Fitz Rou (Rolf). Round also proves that Henry de Newmarch was the grandson of Wynbald.

Both Wynbald and his brother Hamelin were alive and found in the court of Henry I as witnesses (Ego Winebaldus de Baalun, Ego Hamelinus frater ejus.) to a Mommouth charter in 1101/02 and again in one of Henry I, granted between 1103/1106.

"The heirship of Newmarch to Winebaud is explained by a charter of Bermondsey Priory (to which Winebud de Ballon was a benefactor in 1092) that Henry de Newmarch 'ratified all those grants which Winebald his grandfather, and likewise Roger and Milo sons of the same Winbald had given.' More over a Tewkesbury charter clinches the proof:

'Carta Henrici de Novoforo qua confirmat manerium de Amenel ecclesia Theok' quod Winebaldus de Bolun avus suux ex parte dedit et ex parte vendidit eidem ecclesie primo anno Henrici regis primi, etc. [Monasticon, II. 73]'

"The very considerable barony inherited by Henry de Newmarch (over 15 knight's fees in 1166) explain his granfather Winebaud's description of himself as 'Unus de magnis regis Henrici post conquestum primi baronibus' in a charter in of 1127. [Cartulary of St. Peter's, Gloucester I. 61]
