An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The history of the Bellynger family name begins after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Nottingham in the midlands of England. However, the family was originally descended from the Bellengers, the Knights of Facomberg in Picardy, France and the name has been corrupted from the name of the French Boulanger family, who were chevaliers (knights) of Hainaut and Flanders.

Bellynger Early Origins



The surname Bellynger was first found in Nottingham in the midlands of England where they held a family seat from very early times, and granted large estates in that shire, by William the Conqueror, their liege lord.

Bellynger Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Ballenger, Ballinger, Bellinger, Bellenger and others.

The Great Migration



Because of the political and religious discontent in England, families began to migrate abroad in enormous numbers. Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with Bellynger name or one of its variants: Frederick Bellinger who settled in New York State in 1710; Henry Bellinger settled in New York in 1709; Marcus Bellinger arrived in New York in 1710; Ann Bellinger settled in Barbados in 1654.
