The Inchley name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived at Hinckley, in Leicestershire. The place-name Hinckley is derived from the Old English personal name Hynca, and leah, an Old English word that meant "forest clearing."

Inchley Early Origins



The surname Inchley was first found in Leicestershire at Hinckley, a market town and parish that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Hinchelie. [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 Inchley were among those contributors: Samuel Hinckley settled in New England with his wife Sarah and four children in 1634; Amos Hinckley settled in New York in 1851; Ebenezer Hinkley settled in Boston in 1765.
