The name Cordingly is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived 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



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 Cordingly or a variant listed above:
