was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. Benington and Long Bennington can be found in the Borough of Boston in Lincolnshire and this is presumably a later branch of the family as Alan de Beninton was listed there in the Assize Rolls of Lincolnshire in 1218. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Binintons to arrive on North American shores: John Benington who settled in Virginia in 1642; Thomas Cornelius Benington settled in North Carolina in 1740; George Bennington settled in Savannah Georgia in 1775.
