The ancient roots of the Lindle family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Lindle comes from when the family lived in either of the settlements called Linley in Shropshire or Wiltshire, or in one of the places called Lindley in Leicestershire or the West Riding of Yorkshire. The surname Lindle is occasionally derived from residence near a limewood or in a clearing where flax was grown. The surname Lindle belongs to both the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads, and to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees.

Lindle Early Origins



The surname Lindle was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor from ancient times, some say before the Norman Conquest of England at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Lindle arrived in North America very early:
