The forefathers of the Hemingway family were Viking settlers who came to Scotland in the Middle Ages. Many places were named by these Norsemen, and the Hemingway surname was taken on from one of these place names, when someone lived in the Orkneys, where the family was found since the early Middle Ages.

The surname Hemingway was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Sound and intuition were the main things that scribes in the Middle Ages relied on when spelling and translating names. Since those factors varied, so did the spelling of the names. Spelling variations of the name Hemingway include Hemmingway, Hemingway and others.
