lancellyn Early Origins



The surname lancellyn 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."

Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled.
