The name Killingbach is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived along the Killingbeck river. Killingbach 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. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.

Killingbach Early Origins



The surname Killingbach was first found in Yorkshire 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



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Killingbachs to arrive in North America: Richard Killingbeck settled in Virginia in 1607; Henry Killingbeck settled in Pennsylvania in 1682.
