Lincorne History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The ancestors of the Lincorne family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in the city of Lincoln in Lincolnshire. The place-name is derived from the British name Lindo, which means lake, and the Latin word, colonia, which means settlement or colony. During the Roman occupation of England, the town was an important administrative center. Later, during the Middle Ages, it was a center for cloth manufacturing and is famous for the "Lincoln Green."
Another source claims the "name is derived from Lin in the Gaelic, Welsh, and Cornish-British, which signifies a pool, pond, or lake, and coln, the ridge or neck of a hill, so called from its situation, as it occupies the top and side of a steep hill on the river Witham, which here divides into three streams." 
Early Origins of the Lincorne family
The surname Lincorne was first found in Lincolnshire. One of the first record of the family was Alured de Lincoln, who came from Normandy with the Conqueror. He witnessed a charter in Normandy 1080 and just six years later in 1086 held a great barony in Lincolnshire and Bedfordshire. In 1130, Robert de Lincoln was listed in the Pipe Rolls, and in 1165 Alured de Lincoln held a barony of thirty fees. 
The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 include: Robert de Linccolne in Nottinghamshire; and Richard de Linccolne in Huntingdonshire. Hugh de Lyncoln, fiscatar, was a Freemen of York, 3 Edward II (during the third year's reign of Edward II.) Daniel de Lyncoln was listed in the Writs of Parliament of 1324 and the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 list Adam de Lincoln.

Lincorne migration to the United States +
The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Lincorne arrived in North America very early:
