Lingley is a name whose history is connected to the ancient 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.

Lingley Early Origins



The surname Lingley 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.

Lingley Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Lingley family name include Lindlie, Lindly, Lindley, Lindleigh, Lindlee, Lyndley, Lyndly, Lyndlee and many more.
