The ancient roots of the Bingay family name are in the Anglo-Saxon
culture. The name Bingay comes from when the family lived in the parish and market town of Bingley,
in the West Riding of Yorkshire.
Early Origins of the Bingay family
The surname Bingay was first found in West Yorkshire
at Bingley, a market town that is now in the metropolitan borough of the City of Bradford. The town dates back to the Domesday Book
of 1086 where it was listed as Bingelei CITATION[CLOSE]

and probably meant "woodland clearing of the family or followers of a man called Bynna," from the Old English personal name
+ "inga" + "leah." CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Bingay family to the New World and Oceana
At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England
was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England
at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Bingay arrived in North America very early: William Bingley who settled in Newbury Massachusetts in 1659; John Bingley settled in New England
in 1765; Peter Bingly arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1736..
