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

The surname Tindell originated in or near Tynedale, the valley of the river Tyne, or in a place called Tindale, in Cumberland. Tindell is a local surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. There are a variety of types of local surnames, some of which include: topographic surnames, which could be given to a person who lived beside any physical feature, such as a hill, stream, church or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. In this case, the surname Tindell derived from the Celtic word tina, which means to flow. This was commonly adopted as a river name. The second component of the surname comes from the Old English word dæl, which means valley. Thus, the surname Tindell referred to one who lived in the valley of the river named Tyne. The earliest records of this surname indicated that members of the Tindell family resided in Northumberland, along the banks of the River Tyne.
