Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Lingley family once 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 Lingley is occasionally derived from residence near a limewood or in a clearing where flax was grown. The surname Lingley 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.
