Pinkiney is a name that came to England in the 11th century wave of migration that was set off by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Pinkiney family lived in Northampton. Their name, however, is a reference to Picquigny, in Somme, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Early Origins of the Pinkiney family


The surname Pinkiney was first found in Northampton where the family claim descent from Gilo de Pincheni, who lived in the reign of Henry I. He was granted by the monks of St. Lucien in France lands at Wedon. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Pinkiney Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Pinkiney has been recorded under many different variations, including Pinkney, Pinckney, Pinkley, Pinkly, Pinkie and others.

Migration of the Pinkiney family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Pinkiney family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Pinkineys were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Henry Pinkie settled in Virginia in 1619.
