Early Origins of the Linstead family


The surname Linstead was first found in Kent at Linstead, a parish, in the union of Faversham, hundred of Teynham, Upper division of the lathe of Scray. Alternatively, the surname could have originated in either Linstead Magna or Linstead Parva in Suffolk. Both of these places have a considerably lower population with Linstead Magna having fewer than 100 and Linstread Parva having about 200 people. Literally, the name Linstead means "place where flax is grown, or where maple trees grow." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
