The surname Hinch belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. The form Hinch grew in popularity after the 16th century.
Scribes in the Middle Ages did not have access to a set of spelling rules. They spelled according to sound, the result was a great number of spelling variations. In various documents, Hinch has been spelled Hinch, Inch, Inches and others.
First found in Perthshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
