Byngley is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Byngley family once lived in the parish and market town of Bingley, in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

Early Origins of the Byngley family


The surname Byngley 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]

Byngley Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Byngley family name include Bingley, Bingler, Bingly and others.

Migration of the Byngley family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Byngley surname or a spelling variation of the name include: 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..
