Harling History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Harling family


The surname Harling was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times as Lords of the manor of Harling. Conjecturally they are descended from the holders of the village of Harling which at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086 consisted of a village with a church, two mills, fisheries, a beehive, and 180 sheep. The village of Harling on the River Thet in the middle centuries later became two, East Harling and West Harling. The holders of the land in 1086 were Godric, Ingulf, and Robert de Verly.

Harling Spelling Variations


Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Harlin, Harling, Harlan, Hawlin, Harlingham and others.

Migration of the Harling family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlantic. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Harling or a variant listed above:
