Lindeen History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Lindeen family
The surname Lindeen was first found in Somerset where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held lands.
One source notes that the name could have been derived from either "dweller at the Lime-Tree Hill [Old English lind, a lime-tree + dún, a hill]" or "dweller at the Flax-Hill [Old English lín, flax + dún]. Lindon, Dorset, was the Anglo-Saxon Lindún" 
Regarding the last note, we could not find Lindon, Dorset, but we did find Bigge's Quarter, Northumberland which noted "the lands of this place, which was once called Linden Quarter, and Carlisle's Quarter." 
Lyndon is a small parish, in the union of Oakham, hundred of Martinsley, county of Rutland.
