The name Allighend is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family 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]

Allighend Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Allighend family name include Alingham, Allingham, Hallingham, Allighan and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Allighend surname or a spelling variation of the name include : 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.
