The ancestors of the Hincliffe surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived at Hinchcliff, now named Hinchliffe Mill, a spot in the township of Austonley, close to Holmtorth in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The name was derived from the Old English phrase "henge-clif" meaning "steep cliff." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Luke Hinchcliffe settled in New York in 1822; Joseph Hinchcliff settled in Philadelphia in 1840; Josua Hinchcliff settled in Newcastle Del. in 1854; James Hinchcliff arrived in Philadelphia in 1871.
