Ailigman is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in the place named Allingham, which was in Kent. Allingham is a compound name, composed of the Old English elements Alling, which means holly, and ham, which means homestead. Thus, Allingham means holly homestead. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Ailigman Spelling Variations

As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Ailigman or a variant listed above: Walter Alinham who settled in Barbados in 1704. In Newfoundland, James Allingham, from County Donegal, settled in St. John's in 1834; William Allingham was a fisherman of the Brandy Islands in 1869.
