The ancestors of the name Bynley date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Bynley family lived in the parish and market town of Bingley, in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

Bynley Early Origins



The surname Bynley 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



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Bynley or a variant listed above: 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..
