An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The history of the name Keling begins in the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It was a name for a person who fished codfish and was accordingly named after the fish. The surname Keling 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.

Keling Early Origins



The surname Keling 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.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Keling or a variant listed above: Catherine Keeling settled in Barbados in 1674; Andrew and Mathew Keeling settled in Maryland in 1775; Thomas Keeling settled in Virginia in 1635.
