The ancestors of the bearers of the Hint family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in the region of Ince in Cheshire West. Hint is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree.

Hint Early Origins



The surname Hint was first found in Cheshire at Ince, a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and historically in the union of Great Boughton, Second division of the hundred of Eddisbury. The first record of this local was found in the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Inise. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Ince-in-Makerfield or Ince is a regenerated township in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, in Greater Manchester, but historically in Lancashire. The earliest mention of the Manor of Ince and the Ince family dates from about 1202 in this area. At that time, it was part of the barony of Newton in Makerfield (Newton le Willows.) "The family of Ince were anciently lords of this manor, which, in the reign of Henry IV., was conveyed by their heiress to the Gerards." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Hint Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Hint include Ince, Ince, Ins, Ines, de Inces, Inch and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled 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 ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hint or a variant listed above:

Hint Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • James Hint, who arrived in Virginia in 1654

Hint Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • H B Hint, who arrived in San Francisco, California in 1851
