The lineage of the name Bilingsly begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in or near the parish of Billing, which was located in the diocese of Liverpool. The name of that place is derived from the Old English word bil, meaning sword or halberd, and later came to indicate a pruning hook used in harvesting fruit.

Bilingsly Early Origins



The surname Bilingsly was first found in Lancashire at Chapel-End Billinge, a township and chapelry, in the parish and union of Wigan, hundred of West Derby. "Billinge anciently gave name to a family the chief line of which terminated about the reign of Edward I., in a female heir, who married into the Heyton family." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Bilingsly were among those contributors: Roger Billings who settled in Dorchester Massachusetts and was made a freeman of the town in 1643. He married Mary and had seven children from whom many of the present North American Billings are descended. Enoch Billings settled in Barbados in 1663.
