An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The history of the name Collinges begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from the personal name Nicholas. A common diminutive of the name Nicholas was Colin. Saint Collen was a 7th-century monk who gave his name to Llangollen, Denbighshire which translates from the Welsh as "church of the hazel-wood."

Collinges Early Origins



The surname Collinges was first found in Shropshire where they held a family seat before the Norman Conquest and were Lords of the manor having large estates in that shire and in neighboring Herefordshire.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Collinges or a variant listed above: Alary Collin who settled in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1774; George Collin settled in Maryland in 1775; Patrick Collin settled in New Castle County, Del. in 1856.
