The Anglo-Saxon name Cordingley comes from when the family resided in Yorkshire, in a town called either Cordonley or Cotingley. It was rendered in the Domesday Book as Cotingeley, so the name of the now vanished town was probably Cotingley, but scholars disagree on this. The place-name is derived from two sources; Coting was an old English personal name, and ley was a suffix that meant field or meadow. The name as a whole meant "Coting's field."

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 Cordingley or a variant listed above:
