Lussintone History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Lussintone is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Lussintone family once lived in the village of Lushington which was located in the county of Kent during the 12th century.

Early Origins of the Lussintone family

The surname Lussintone was first found in Kent where this surname is " local, 'of Lushington.' I cannot find the place. Manifestly of Kentish extraction." [1] However, many of the records are quite late: Thomas Lushington, Kent, Register of the University of Oxford (1606-1607) and in 1687, George Walker and Ann Lushington were married in Kent. One branch of the family was found in the parish of Frinton in Essex. "The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £7. 6. 8., and in the gift of the family of Lushington: the tithes have been commuted for £150, and the glebe comprises 27 acres." [2]

Lussintone 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 Lussintone family name include Lushington, Lussintone, Lussington and others.

Migration of the Lussintone family

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Lussintone surname or a spelling variation of the name include: William Lushington settled in Delaware in 1682.
