The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Hyndley come from when the family resided 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."

Hyndley Early Origins



The surname Hyndley 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 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]

As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Hyndley has been recorded under many different variations, including Hindley, Hindeley, Hindle, Hyndley and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hyndley or a variant listed above: William Hindley settled in New England in 1747; Thomas Hindley settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1820; James, John, Joseph, Michael, Peter, Richard Hindley all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1868..
