Hindle History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



In ancient Anglo-Saxon England, the ancestors of the Hindle surname lived at Hindley, in Lancashire, or later at Hiendley, in the West Riding of Yorkshire. They are derived from the Old English words hind, which meant "female deer," and leah, which meant "forest clearing." The place-names as a whole mean "forest clearing where hinds are found."


Early Origins of the Hindle family


The surname Hindle was first found in Lancashire, now part of Greater Manchester. The first record of the placename was as Hindele in 1212 [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
"The family of Hindley, then Hindele, held lands here as early as the reign of Henry II.: in the eighth of Richard II., Robert, of this family, married Emma, one of the heiresses of Pemberton; and the Hindleys were living at the Hall in 1613." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Hindle family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. 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 Hindle or a variant listed above:
