Early Origins of the lamalyng family
The surname lamalyng was first found in Cheshire where the family name was first referenced in the year 1163 when William Lancelin held lands. Bebington in Cheshire was once a stronghold of the family. "The Lancelyns appear to have possessed lands in Lower Bebington as early as the Conquest; their heiress brought the manor in the reign of Elizabeth to the Greens, and it continued in the male line of that family till 1711." 
Another stronghold for the family was found in Poulton, with Spittal. "The family of Lancelyn were settled here soon after the Conquest. Their heiress in the 16th century brought the manor of Poulton to the Greens."

Migration of the lamalyng family
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 lamalyng or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
