An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancestors of the Poling family migrated to England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The surname Poling is based on the Norman-Christian given name Paulinus, which belonged to an early settler Anglo-Norman settler.

Poling Early Origins



The surname Poling was first found in Staffordshire from very ancient times, and Lincolnshire where they were Lords of the Manor of Odcombe. The origin of the name has long since faded into the mists of time but most scholars give the name as a Norman Christian name belonging to a settler, Paulinus, who landed in England soon after the Norman Conquest.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Polings to arrive on North American shores:
