Addlint History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Addlint family


The surname Addlint was first found in Lancashire at Adlington, a small town and civil parish that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was first listed as Eduluintune. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Adlington was part of the Penwortham barony granted to Randle de Marsey and later held by the Ferrers. The place name literally means "estate associated with a man called Eadwulf," from the Old English personal name + "ing" + "tun." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

"The Adlington family held lands here in the reign of Edward II, and for many subsequent generations." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Addlint family to the New World and Oceana


Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of cholera, typhoid, dysentery or small pox. In North America, some of the first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Addlint family name Addlint, or who bore a variation of the surname were George Adlington, who arrived in Baltimore in 1758; William Adlington, who came to Philadelphia in 1865; and Chas Addlington, who was on record in Toronto in 1871..
