I think these need to be split out.Likewise, stating that Taijiquan came from Wing Chun or Wing Chun came from Taijiquan is wrong.
TCC definitely does not come from Wing Chun, but Wing Chun definitely uses Tai Chi concepts, and WC got those from its parent art forms that were heavily influenced by TCC.
The big difference is, Wing Chun today is mainly a striking art (probably unlike proto WC), whereas TCC maintains that more bodyweight/grapple mentality, but in a snake motif.
Another thing Wing Chun and TCC share is the focus on adduction, a very important part of all the "internal" training.
