Adlingto Early Origins



The surname Adlingto 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]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
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]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
"The Adlington family held lands here in the reign of Edward II, and for many subsequent generations." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
In 1202 Walter de Adlington granted six oxgangs of land to Siward de Duxbury. By 1288, Hugh de Adlington and Adam de Duxbury each held a moiety of the manor of William de Ferrers. Adlington Hall was a grand Georgian country house but was demolished in the 1960s.

The Great Migration



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 Atlanti c. 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 Adlingto family name Adlingto, 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..
