Where did the English Lingard family come from? What is the English Lingard family crest and coat of arms? When did the Lingard family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Lingard family history?


Spelling variations of this family name include: Lingard, Lingar, Linguard, Lingarde, Lingard, Lyngard, Lyngerd and many more.

First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.
