The origins of the Bingley name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Bingley was originally derived from a family having lived in the parish and market town of Bingley, in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

Bingley Early Origins



The surname Bingley 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 [1]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." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:

Bingley Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • William Bingley who settled in Newbury, Massachusetts in 1659

Bingley Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • John Bingley settled in New England in 1765
