The lineage of the name Hindley begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they 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."

Hindley Early Origins



The surname Hindley was first found in Lancashire, now part of Greater Manchester. The first record of the placename was as Hindele in 1212 [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hindley were among those contributors:
