The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Hingston has been spelled many different ways, including Hingston, Hinkston, Hinkson, Hingeston, Hingson and others.

First found in Cambridgeshire, where evidence suggests they held a family seat before the Norman Conquest. Today Hingston Down is a hill near Gunnislake, Cornwall, and Hingston Down is a hill spur in Devon.
