An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The present generation of the Binchy family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived by an open manger or stall. It derived from the Old English name Binningas, which was a name for someone who lived near stables.

Binchy Early Origins



The surname Binchy was first found in Middlesex, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Binchy Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Binchy include Bing, Binge, Binley, Binckes, Bink, Byng, Bincks and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Binchy were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: James Binckes who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1860; Brian Bincks settled in New England in 1620; Charles Bincks settled in New England in 1739.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Tuebor
Motto Translation: I will defend.
