The history of the name Keiling goes back those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain. Such a name was given to a person who fished codfish and was accordingly named after the fish. The surname Keiling is derived from the Old English word keling, which means young codfish. Occasionally, the name is derived from residence in the settlement of Keeling in the county of Norfolk.

Keiling Early Origins



The surname Keiling was first found in Worcestershire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Keiling family name include Keeling, Keiling, Kealing and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad.

Investigation of the origins of family names on the North American continent has revealed that early immigrants bearing the name Keiling or a variant listed above:
